“Great introductory lesson”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

The 2.5 hour lesson was perfect for me. I had only attempted to surf one other time in my life so having a professional instruct me was great. We practiced the different surfing positions on the beach for about 15 minutes and then we were in the water ready to ride the waves. The boards they provide are great because they are padded and offer a less slippery deck than you standard surf board. The instructor was great and always offered helpful instructions after each wave I rode. Overall, I would rate this as excellent. They were prompt in the response to emails and the people working there are great people.

“Hightlight of my trip to Bali!”
Reviewed 3 November 2012

Three of us signed up the day before for surf lessons and we chose the surf school at the Hard Rock randomly, but were so happy with our decision. None of us had ever surfed before, and within an hour all of us had stood up. We had two awesome instructors, and Jake led our class. We started on the sand practicing the basic moves and paddling before moving into the water to catch waves on our stomachs. After that we learned how to stand up and our instructors were there every step of the day helping us in the water. I felt safe the entire time with two sets of eyes making sure we were ok throughout our lesson. If you sign up for a lesson be sure to ask for Jake--he was patient and a month later we are still talking about him!

In a day you cannot learn to surf ,,,it takes a lot of time.. but just for fun it nice to get the feel of surfing because you actually get to feel the pressure of the wave ....

“Quick silver surf school”
Reviewed 25 October 2012

Quicksilver surf school in legian on the beach just doen from the jayakarta.
Best school to learn to surf. My 10 year old son completed lessons at this school in a group for 4 days for 2.5 hours each day. He was the only child in the group he enjoyed the whole three days, he picked up on it really quickly, the money we paid was well worth every penny spent. he also got a tshirt and a certififcate.
The staff at the sufr school are fantastic, know what they are teaching, very confident, friendly. By the 2nd day isaiah was statrting to stand on the board, the staff worled with him one on one at some time.
I would highly recommended this surf school to any one who wants to put there children in surfing lessons in bali.
I wouldn't send my child any where else,
Recently when we were in bali he went surfingwith two of the guys from the suft school andthoroughly enjoyed it he's looking forward to it again next year.
