Enjoy the full Indonesian experience with no hassle and a touch of class...
Our six week island-hopping adventure is everything Ticket to Ride is about. You will surf and experience three different islands, improving your surfing with professional tuition in the most perfect waves in the World, complimented by surf specific yoga classes.
You will learn more about surfing and push yourself more in this six weeks, than you would in 6 years by yourself.
What to Expect
Expect an island experience like no other, combining three totally different islands and types of waves into one amazing trip. Starting in Bali, we will ease you into surfing the famous reef breaks around 'The Bukit' area that Indonesia is famous for, given the conditions on the day. The next stop is Lombok to surf some of the most beautiful waves you can ever imagine, then onto Nusa Lembongan where we will take you out at the famous Playgrounds, Shipwrecks and Lacerations (plus a little secret spot we know). For the last two weeks we fly back to Bali to spend the remainder of the trip traveling up the West Coast, where the crowds get thinner and the waves longer. 500m rides can be expected here...
With six weeks of top coaching from your Trip Leaders you will grow in confidence and your surfing will reflect this. We're mostly out on boats, so a lot of the coaching will be done from the water, but there will also be time back on land where photo and video analysis will come into play. All our surf instructors hold internationally recognised qualifications and are there to ensure overall progression, as well as your safety in the water.

The surf camps are located close to the waters edge. Bedrooms are all shared twin rooms with en suites, AC and TV, although there will be no time for TV... Breakfast is included at all stops and we know all the restaurants that serve the best-priced, tastiest food around.
White Water Rafting: Enjoy the beautiful scenery whilst having fun travelling down the rapids.
Volcano Hike: Most islands are volcanic, and Bali has several volcanoes on it. An early morning hike will take us to the top to watch the sun come up from what feels like the top of the world.
Snorkelling: You'll go on a calm day when there isn’t much swell, to see incredible sealife in all their splendour, usually including Manta Rays.
Here you'll find a day by day breakdown of your course.
Welcome to Indo 1 WeekOn arrival in Denpasar airport you will be greeted by your Trip Leader and taken to the surf camp for the welcome beachfront barbecue. In your first week you will have surf lessons twice a day to get to know the waves and receive appropriate coaching to your current skill level. As well as this we will go white water rafting and explore the volcanic countryside and mountains.
Push your surfing to new heights 1 WeekThe group will venture further afield and surf many of the different waves that Bali has on offer. In between surfs you will also climb a volcano, visit the Uluwatu monkey temple and purchase yourself a new surfboard at a great price (if needed).
Focus on your surfing technique 1 WeekYou will fly over to Lombok with your Trip Leaders, where we will visit the small fishing village of Gerupuk and hit early morning surfs and explore surf breaks by boat. This week will focus on your surfing technique and we'll use photo and video analysis to help you improve.
Progress on Nusa Lembongan 1 WeekA fun ferry ride takes you to Nusa Lembongan island, where you'll consolidate all that you've learnt so far to take on some of the most beautiful waves in the World. In between surfs you can snorkel in the lagoon in front of the accommodation. The last night will be spent in Kuta, where we will regroup before heading up the Coast... Ba
Road trip! 2 WeeksLeaving from Kuta, we head West up the Coast, stopping at Canggu, Balian and Medewi, where we will experience really, really long waves. One of the guys on last years trip clocked up a ride of over 500m! After a solid two weeks of surf, eat, surf, eat, surf, eat, sleep repeat, we head back down to Kuta for a fun-packed farewell meal, drinks and a good sleep in our air-conditioned rooms. On the final day it's time to head to the airport, tanned, surfed out and stoked.
No, we recommend buying bottled water only.
There are loads of different types of waves to suit everyone's needs, so don't fret!
These islands tend to be low to no risk areas of Indonesia. However, we recommend checking the latest government advice on Fit For Travel and consulting your GP before you leave.
It all depends on how much you want to spend. For example, a Nasi Goreng at a local warung will cost 25,000IDR (£1.25) and a beer is 25,000IDR (£1.25), yet a fillet steak and a cocktail at a fancy place in Canggu will cost around 250,000 (£12.50). It all depends on your budget, but we tend to eat frugally most of the time.
