Santai Surf School Bali Reviews
If you want to learn how to surf this is the right place to do. Instructor was friendly, helpful and above all patient. more »
Really great semi-private lesson, we had great fun. Lesson was really clear both on the beach and in the water. All staff were really friendly too, would definitely recommend. more »
Tried out Santa Surf School today and had an excellent time. Had a quick but thorough lesson on the beach to get form and technique down before heading into the water. Then we did two one-on-one surf sessions that had me up and riding the waves in no time. Instructor Jojo was solid with his instructions and encouragement, definite recommend to anyone looking to learn or improve their surfing.
We took 3 lessons at Santai, dad and three daughters (21, 17 & 11) and absolutely loved it! The team is very friendly and professional, easy to understand and helpful. Even in a group lesson of three people the instructor (Jojo, whom we loved) was able to help us all equally and no one felt neglected. If you are looking to learn how to surf, we definitely recommend Santai!
