This surf school with its base in Kerobokan has a team of professional instructors who deliver surfing lessons for adults and kids of varying skill levels. Classes by pro surfers Ryan Hardy and Michael ‘Eppo’ Eppelstun are also featured regularly through ‘camps’ scheduled throughout the year. Two-hour lessons typically include a pick up from your hotel, then off to the coast of Canggu. Safety briefs and warm-up sessions precede your lesson. Then you’ll learn the basics, and progress up to all the aspects, from steering to crazy stances such as ‘dropknee’, or partly standing on your board.
