Wayan and Lewis were so great! I took three surf lessons with them and I wish I had the time to take a 4th one! I got to learn a lot in a short time. They are both very nice and patient and each wave you take they tell you what’s good and what’s bad so you can progress fast. Plus you get a bottle of water at the end of the class which is very appreciated. Thank you again !

Wayan is superb! He picked me up at Hotel and he patiently teached me the basic of surfing since it was my first time. He also very detailed and supportive toward the end. Definitely will book another lesson when I go to Bali again.

This was so so fun, it was my first time surfing but everything sent so good and our instructor was the best! So fun and he was really good to give instructions and feedback. I really had the time of my life om those waves!

Was a great lesson. Great teacher, and I was able to start surfing after the third attempt. Due to low tourism here in Bali, I got the lesson privately which was very helpful as well!

Big thank you to Gelgel and the team. We had a brilliant time and will definitely be coming back out next time in Bali!!
