Overview

Get out of the tourist trap and score the longest waves of your life!

Even though Indonesian boasts 17,000 idyllic islands, surfers since the 1980's have always headed to Bali, and more specifically, Uluwatu or Kuta. On this trip we head the other way and get out of the main surf spots by driving up the West Coast to discover perfect wave after perfect wave. 

Expect a journey through rice paddies as we take in Bali's longest pointbreak, amongst a plethora of other spots and take the opportunity to truly immerse yourself within genuine Indonesian culture.

What to Expect

With our local experience and experience, you'll certainly see more of Bali than the average surfer and will always find yourself in front the right spot at the right time with the right tide and the right wind. 

Your surfing will reach new heights as our surf coaches are on hand to answer any question you've ever had and guide you in and out of the water.

As much as you dream about surfing day in and day out, your body will need some time to rest, but don't worry, we take down time very seriously on this trip. Sometimes you'll be analysing video footage of your surfing and other times you'll be exploring the local area, having a bintang watching the waves or simply getting lost in a book on the beach.

Surfing ability

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.

Accommodation

Spacious twin rooms with A/C, drinking water and en-suite bathroom and shower are standard in Canggu. There is also a penthouse yoga area with incredible views, a beautiful swimming pool and breakfast restaurant. In Medewi, we'll have a Ticket to Ride exclusive house with twin rooms, A/C, TV lounge, balconies, and all a stone's throw away from the surf spot.

Here you'll find a day by day breakdown of your course.

  • Get settled and get in the water! 3 Days

    These first three days in Canggu will see you settling in, beating your jetlag and getting into the water. We'll also spend time getting you on the right equipment for our trip up the coast. There are lots of breaks around Canggu to accomodate and test your surfing ability, so we'll be surfing, relaxing and enjoying the high energy of the area as well!

  • Road trip 8 Days

    With boards and baggages loaded, the road trip to your new base in Medewi begins! Located just 80m from the long left pointbreak, it's the perfect place to be honing your surfing skills and working on goals set by your surf coaches. We may also head to nearby Balian for a night or two where we'll take on it's incredibly fun wave right out in front of our air-conditioned beach side Villa's.

  • Relax 3 Days

    Surfed out and aching from Medewi, we'll head back to Canggu for massages and an array of delicious healthy restaurants and shops. We'll go and visit the famous Tanah Lot Temple, take in the beautiful sunsets and surf plenty as well!

No, we recommend buying bottled water only.

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.

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!
