When you choose to stay at Surf Camp Seminyak you’ll get the perfect combination of time spent in epic surf, chilling around the pool, and partying in nearby Kuta.
The camp is near the hustle & bustle of Kuta and Seminyak, but once you enter the grounds you’re exported into a tropical oasis where it is quiet and relaxed. The 6km Kuta Beach is only 4 minutes away on foot, once there you will find perfect surf spots like Gado-Gado, HalfWay, Padma and KuDeTa that provide waves perfect for everybody from the total rookie, to the seasoned pro.
If you head 3km south from the camp you are in Kuta Central, meaning a quick trip to go shopping, or a late night out partying is no issue. It is far enough away to ensure the neighbourhood around the camp directly isn’t crazy busy and you can still get a good night’s rest for your early morning surf session.
At the camp itself you have all the western luxuries you want, mixed up with Indonesian style and flair. The centrepiece of the camp is a big natural stone pool with Jacuzzi surrounded by a large chill area and tropical plants. You also have an outdoor restaurant, mini theatre, Indo-Boards and Wi-Fi and a communal lounge area. The rooms themselves border the central area and are all modern, well-furnished and incorporate Indo flair. There are double and 4-person rooms, each has a modern bathroom, air-con or ventilator and a small private balcony.
The island of Bali
Known as the Island of the Gods, Bali is definitely the most well-known of the Indonesian Islands, and for good reason. The surf in Bali was discovered in the 30’s, but it wasn’t until the 70’s that Bali became a premier surfing destination. When you arrive you’ll be inundated in amazing surf spots, just let the local crew give you some advice and you’re sure to score some epic waves.
Bali isn’t only this popular because of the great waves however. You have the wild nightlife in places like Kuta, Seminyak and the full moon beach parties are known around the globe. You also have the culture and history. The ancient Hindu temples are stunning and well worth exploring. You also have spectacular food, as well as an amazing tropical jungle landscape once you get away from the cities. There really is nothing more that you’d want from an island surf trip.
Waterfalls, Coffee Plantations, Monkey Forest & Ubud
In Bali, you can explore the spectacular natural beauty of the country by booking a car and driver with some of your surf buddies. One of the things we recommend is taking a trip to the Waterfall in Semkumpul that is almost impossible to find without a local guide and rarely visited by tourists. On this trip, you’ll be able to check out a Coffee Plantation on the way, as well as some Rice Terraces, and a walk through the Monkey Forest by Ubud. The local guide can also recommend temples that are worth checking out on the trip as well as great places to stop and eat. This is the best way to get an amazing trip through the country with zero hassle.
Tipis are the budget friendly option that still gives you a private space where you can retreat to after your days out in the ocean. All the Tipis are air-conditioned and come with a 1.6 x 2 meter bed, a wardrobe and a safe.
These Tipis are a modern take on a traditional form of shelter. They are 3.5 meters tall and each have a private entrance. There is a shared bathroom and outdoor shower available to all the guests staying in the Tipis. The Tipis can be booked for 2, or privately with a surcharge.

The 4-Person Lumbung is spread out over 2 floors, and has air-conditioning, a small safe, mosquito nets, and a private modern bathroom. The 2 Lumbungs' at Surf Camp Seminyak are located directly next to the central pool and terrace.
A modern take on the Lumbung, these 4 Person Deluxe Dorms, are also split over two floors, with the upper floor costing a few percent more. Each Deluxe Dorm, so 8 Surfers, have their own bathroom, and plenty of storage space, as well as a more private chill area.

Surf Guiding is included in your stay. You can surf twice a day at spots the local team have picked out. You’ll get helpful tips about your surfing and the waves as well as the chance to take part in video coaching.
The 2 guided surf sessions every day will take you to waves that are perfect for your skill level. Small and mellow for beginners, to big and heavy for pros, and everything in between. The transfers to the beach, point or reef break are included, as are the tips you will get before, and throughout the session from the experienced and local surf coaches.
There is even video coaching 3 days a week to review your surfing when you’re back at camp and point out any problems you might be having. Twice a week there are extra theory courses available to improve your surfing, rules in the surf, and the way you read the waves & the conditions.
Each group is split into surfers who are at the same level, so the guide for you, and the group you are in, will find the perfect spot for you taking into account the season, swell, weather and tide. The groups will be smaller, you’ll have more access to the guides, and the people in your group will push one another. All of this means, regardless of where your surfing was at when you arrive, your skills in the surf are going to improve dramatically during your stay.
The daily routine:
Every evening you sign up to a surf session that suites your ability and the time you’d like to hit the water. If you’re keen you can sign up to the sunrise session and get out in the water before the crowds, and have breakfast when you get back.
For intermediate surfers you have plenty of beach and easy reef and point breaks nearby that provide surf big and powerful enough so you can get long rides along the face, but not too big and shallow to scare you out of catching any waves. These long rides are perfect for learning big carves and turns and will improve your surfing, and build your confidence dramatically.
Advanced surfers will experience the best Bali has to offer. There are plenty of world class reefs and points along the coast where the waves will be almost perfect. The team will take you to spots like Padang Padang, Dreamland, Ulawatu or Balangan where you can catch long, big and hollow waves that will get even the most seasoned surfer stoked. With the tips from the locals you’ll paddle right out into the perfect position, and catch wave after wave.
For total beginners planning a trip to Surf House Seminyak you can book the Beginners Surf course. The mellow beach breaks close to the camp like HalfWay, Padma, Kudeta and DoubleSix are the ideal spots to catch your first waves. The waves are not only easy to catch and ideal to perfect your take-of, but also provide long rides where you can get your surfboard balance sorted and start working on turns.
Even more advanced surfers can come to these spots and catch epic long rides, with plenty of open face in front of you, and plenty of time to consciously think about the next turn you’re going to make, and where you are going to make it.
Price for the Learn-to-Surf Package is 79 € for 3 days.

Surf House Seminyak has a massive selection of rental boards on offer that include Shortboards that range from 6 ft. to 7 ft. as well as retro fish and Minimals for beginners. The team can get you on the perfect board taking into account the conditions, your skill level, and the type of surfing you are going to be doing. If you’re not bothered transporting your board from home you can obviously bring it along. Any extras you need, or may have forgotten, like wax, boardshorts, surf bikini, tail pad, fins or a leash, are all available at the local surf store.
You have an option of getting surfboard insurance for your rental board, just in case it hits the reef or sand while surfing, or you accidentally drop it on the way to the beach, it doesn’t matter if it’s a small ding, or something more serious. If you happen to loose the board somehow, surfboard insurance won’t cover that and you’ll have to fork out for a replacement.
A delicious breakfast is included for all guest, with the option of upgrading to a Deluxe Breakfast for 5€ per day.
Breakfast runs from 07:00 till 12:00 every day. Coffee and tea are available from 06:00 till 18:00. If you are taking part in the early morning surf session and don’t think you’ll be back by 12 you can ask for breakfast-to-go in the evening.
The standard breakfast consists of a selection of juices or smoothies, coffee & tea, plus a starter and a main.
The deluxe breakfast is more of an all you can eat deal which is perfect when you return from your early morning surf session. It also includes smoothies, coffee & tea.
A great way to make your trip uncomplicated in terms of evening meals is to choose the half board option. Every night after 17:30 you’ll be able to choose a 2-course meal from a varied menu that consists of both local in international food. The experienced chef has daily specials and sometime fires up the BBQ or prepares a big buffet dinner.
If you choose not to take the Half Board option you can find plenty of great restaurants surrounding the camp and even more the closer you get to Kuta. You can get a healthy and delicious local Nasi or Mie Goreng at a picturesque beachside café for as little as 2€.
Once you start heading to the more touristy areas like Seminyak you’ll have a great selection of western restaurants. You’ll find everything from the typical American burger joints to Italian, Japanese and German restaurants that cater to tourists who want to experience the comforts of home.
So that you experience more of what Bali has to offer the team organises weekend day trips with a private driver who can fill you in on plenty of interesting facts, local tips and show you the best sights on the way. For example, if the trip is to Ubud, the driver might make a stop at a Temple, or waterfall on the way that is off the beaten tourist path.
If you want to explore Bali on your own accord you can rent the bus with driver from camp, as long as there is 3 or more of you. You can also use the bus if you just want to go the the supermarket or cash machine.
Otherwise you also have the option of renting a scooter or mountain bike to explore. There’s nothing quite like strapping a board to the side of your scooter and exploring the coast, stopping at any spot you like for a quick surf, then continuing until sunset. If you want to rent a scooter, or the van, you need an international driver’s license.
There are plenty of opportunities to experience Balinese culture. Whether you want to go to one of the many ancient Hindu or Buddhist temples to learn about the origins of the culture, visit the palaces to see how the royalty in Bali live, check out the rice fields or even take trips into the bigger cities to shop, eat & party. Each trip will highlight a different element of Balinese culture. From its origins in the temples, through its development, to what the culture has become today.
For those who like an action-packed trip, Surf House Seminyak has got you covered. On top of the 14 weekly surf session & 7 Yoga Sessions you have included in your stay, you can also go Diving on one of the outer reefs surrounding the island, Kite Boarding & Stand Up Paddleboarding are also available.
