You have never surfed before? This surflesson will then be the perfect match for you. Our surf guide will choose the surf spot with the right conditions for your beginner course. Batu Bolong is perfect for that. You can be sure to be safe, as all of our surf teachers are experienced surf instructors and lifeguards for many years. They know exactly how to make you feel comfortable with the ocean and the waves.
You can successfully paddle out alone at a familiar location and catch and ride waves to a logical finish ? Then welcome to the intermediate surfers . To improve your level, it’s important to avoid mistakes from now on . We will give you the best tips and techniques for advanced surfing. The breaks in Canggu are ideal for intermediate surfers. But also plenty of other great spots are ready to get discovered.
With kids we strictly do one on one teaching. Batu Bolong Temple is a perfect start for the kids. The big waves break outside and what we ride are the small reform waves in a safe area with little current and hardly any rocks. In the first few classes we are happy that there is heaps of whitewater to make the first steps more easy.

"Every day surfing with Nengah was the BEST day in Canggu. I had so much fun. So many good waves, he instantly made me feel comfortable and I was up and sliding in no time. Long wave, long paddle... Definitely worth it. Always good feedback and he also took time to take photos which are so fun to look back on!! Such a good experience. Can't wait to come back soon. Thanks so much Nengah! Yeeoww!"

"As a complete beginner I am glad I took my first classes with Nengah. He is was able to make me comfortable with trying, encouraged me, he was very attentive to every attempt, indicating me how to improve my balance and what went wrong when failing. In a couple of days I graduated from 9 to 8.5 feet and real hard surf board! He also was very thoughtful picking up the right waves. I highly recommend him for a fun & safe session and for his technique teaching skills ! Looking forward to surf again with Nengah."

"Learning surfing in canggu with Nengah and his team was incredible. They are local guys and really know everything about the waves and tides. Nengah always advised the best time with perfect waves for learning. They are very friendly and profesional. My two sons (8 and 10 years) fell in love with surfing. They felt safe and didn't have fear of anything. It was amazing time and we enjoyed it. Thank you Nengah."

"Surfing with Nengah can be summed up in one word: perfect!! I've been surfing with Nengah for 6 years already, everytime I'm in Canggu. He is the best surfguide in the world!! It's not only his professional skills like theoretic explainations on the beach, choosing the right spots at the right time and fitting to the individual level, correction in the water and after the lesson, besides that he is always motivating and encouraging, friendly, funny and happy when he sees you happy!! He knows the ocean and can read the waves so I always felt safe out there in the water!! Great experience, highly recommended to everyone, beginners to advanced!! Go there when you go to Canggu!!"

"I have visited Bali many times now, started off with a surf school and took some private surf lessons with different instructors. Ever since I met Nengah I never took a lesson from somebody else again, cause I've found the best guide :) No matter if you want to spend just one lesson with him or more, if you have experiences or not, he'll make sure to give you his knowladge in a way that you understand. He will explain you all steps from the very beginning if needed.He'll see where you at and adjust the size of the board, the surf spot for your level. What I rly like is, that he teaches me about the ocean, about the waves, how to read them, about the wind... He will go out of his way to meet your expectation! And the lessons are fun to booth. We always laugh and joke around. Everytime I go to Bali I take some lessons when I get a little frustrated surfing on my own and don't know how to improve...he makes sure that after the lesson I am motivated again and ready to rock! :)) Thanks for all fun sessions so far. Hopefuly I see you soon :)"
