Hassle-free surf trip in the world’s most wave-rich country.
Bali is the surfing capital of Indonesia and we base ourselves in charming and increasingly quirky Canggu, on the West Coast. We make the most of our time surfing the numerous breaks on our doorstep, practising yoga on the roof terrace and winding down in the beachfront warungs and bars. By joining the Indonesia surf camp you'll experience the incredible combination of unparalleled surfing and the hospitatlity of Indonesian culture, in a unique and hassle-free way.
What to Expect
Expect to discover a rich culture, climb a volcano and delicious food in between unlocking your surfing potential. An island paradise awaits.
Your experienced surf guides will help you to take your surfing to the next level, and with their outstanding local knowledge you'll score the best waves day in, day out. Two weeks in this tropical paradise will be the perfect break from the stresses of daily life and see your surfing reach an all-time high.
While surfing every day might be just the ticket for some, the Trip Leaders will always add in plenty of down time to give bodies the chance to rest and recuperate. Relax by doing some yoga, swim in the pool, dine out in the local restaurants or simply put your feet up and read a book. We will also explore the island, hiking up the volcano, visiting the monkey temples of Uluwatu and head to the mountains for some white water river rafting!
This trip is best suited to surfers with some experience, not total beginners. Whether you’re just starting to surf green waves, or looking to land your first air, our coaching team will be ready for you. If you're unsure just get in touch!

What past riders say
Had a blast! I'd also really recommend river rafting in Bali and seeing and snorkelling with manta rays. The trip great and I wouldn't have changed a thing.Ryan Mills
I've had a fantastic time - it's been life changing! I'd recommend it to anyone who is keen to surf, keen to meet new people and keen to see a different part of the world, which is just spectacular.Matt Quinlan
Coming into the trip as a beginner was quite intimidating at first but it's actually totally fine. The coaching was incredible, they never pushed you to do anything that you weren't comfortable with and you'll improve super quickly.Sophie Altchek
It was amazing! I really enjoyed working with the Rip Curl Surf School as we taught kids from the local orphanage how to surf! It was pretty rewarding and really fun at the same time.
I honestly can't help but tell anyone who is thinking of doing this trip to sign up now, as you won't regret it and your surfing will definitely improve.Ronan Collins
I thoroughly enjoyed this trip and would highly recommend it! The Trip Leaders were incredibly knowledgeable with everything from surf coaching to travel advice. The destinations were beautiful and the local people of Indonesia blew me away with their kindness and hospitality. I gained far more than I spent and truly progressed at surfing, far beyond my initial goals.
Thanks for everything! TTR rocks!Kaitlin Klimosko
Not reccommended. Bottled water is cheap and easily available.
This trip is best suited to surfers with some experience, not total beginners. Whether you’re just starting to consistently surf green waves, or looking to land your first air, our coaching team will be ready for you. The entry level for this trip requires you to have confidence and knowledge in the water, and be confident in the basic skills in surfing. If you’re uncertain, check out the iAM Bands ability measure, where we would require an Orange or Green+ skill level.
If you’re a total beginner, not a problem! Check out our Indonesian beginner surf trips (launching July 2017) or alternative locations such as Costa Rica or Sri Lanka.
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.
Yes you do.
Indonesian immigration issues a holiday visa on arrival to the following countries: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Fiji, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and USA.
You'll need to get a 30 day visa which are free upon arrival.
If you are staying longer (i.e. this 6-week trip) then we reccommend that you apply for an extended visa beforehand at home. Otherwise you can purchase the extended visa in Bali for around £30-£50. You will then have to jump through hoops for a while, so we'd recommend you organise a 60-day visa in advance of the trip.
Visas are only issued on the grounds that you have proof of return/onward travel out of Indonesia. You may also be asked to show proof of funds (often about £1,500), so it's always worth bringing a valid credit card for this purpose. You will also need £10 (approx 150,000 IDR) cash to pay your departure tax when leaving Indonesia – it's often included in most tickets nowadays but it does depend on the airline you fly with.
