“Friendly atmosphere and reasonable prices”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

This was almost my first time windsurfing and it was a wonderful experience.
People at the surf school are very friendly and helpful; the gear is not the best, but it is ok for absolute beginners. Instructors are also good, though it depends on your luck whichone will be available to teach you.
Prices are reasonable, if not low as compared to Europe (e.g. Portugal, Greece, Bulgaria).

“Great school with qualified instructors and helpful & friendly staff at the reception!”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

I checked a few schools at Double Six Road and although it was slightly more expensive, I decided to go for this one. This turned out to be great choice and with free board rental and free pick up from hotel the price difference quickly compensated!! I started from zero and instructors took necessary time to explain and demonstrate techniques. If you feel you need more practice, you can do it for free after the group lesson (other schools charge 100k/h rental). The group was quite big - c.a. 10 people, what was not an issue since at each class there were 3-4 instructors closely helping and correcting each movement. As the only school we received helmets, what turned out necessary since i got hit a few times by the board. I do not understand how other schools may teach without protection. Water and towels were provided for free. It was also possible to purchase great photos at affordable price.
Really worth recommending! If i ever come back to Bali, i will go back to that school again without any doubt!!

“Learned with the best Team!”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

I had 5 days in Bali Sanur, where I wanted really to learn kite surfing.
After 4 lessons with different intructors (Jonni; Lucas and Gus) (different instructors very passionate and very good teacher) and a material in very good shape, I could improve a lot and ride on both side. I learn a lot of tricks which help me now to really enjoy and to hav a lot of fun with my own material. Thank you guys, for your strong support and your clear instructions to help me for achieving my goal.

“Learned with the best!”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

I learned to surf with Rip Curl Surf School and Surf Goddess Retreats all women classes and I have to say that these guys made the challenging sport of surfing easy and fun! I was exhausted after the lessons, but each day I a learnt more and after a week of lessons I was able to ride a 'green' wave with was more than i ever expected. I was amazed that they even had me up on the board on my first day! The instructors a clearly professionals who love what they do and have a great time while making sure everyone was safe a well looked after. Everybody was warm and freindly from the drivers that picked us up to the girls behind the counter, and the photographer made me look fantastic so i was thirlled to be able to capture my surfing experience on CD. Thanks to the Rip Curl Team!
