Beginner and Intermediate Surf Lessons and Guiding at Black Stone, Bali

After a day of rain yesterday the sun was shining again today as our beginner and intermediate groups joined up to surf at Black Stone in Nusa Dua.

Conditions were clean with waves breaking in the knee to chest high range for the duration of the surf lessons and guiding session this morning.

After everybody was surfed out, they all headed back to camp to feast on delicious fresh tuna poke bowls and refuel for tomorrow.

Beginner and Intermediate Surfing Lessons and Guiding at Balangan, Bali

It was a relatively late start for our beginner and intermediate group’s first session of the day today as they travelled to Balangan beach for group surf lessons and guiding.

The were party waves and smiles all around as our surfers worked on their popups and started making their first turns down the line in the late morning sun.

Waves were breaking in the knee to waist high range which is ideal for building confidence when you’re just getting started

Beginner surfing lessons at Balangan, Bali

This morning our beginner groups headed to Balangan beach for their group surfing  lessons.

Waves were typically coming through in the knee to chest-high range with a couple of larger sets, which the future big wave surfers among the group confidently took advantage of!

After a break between sessions, the groups stayed at Balangan for their second session of the day as it remained the ideal place to surf today based on the tide, wind and swell conditions.

Beginner and Intermediate Surfing Lessons at Balangan, Bali

After a couple of days out on the boat our beginner and intermediate groups got things started from dry land this morning with a trip to sunny Balangan beach for their first session of morning group surf lessons.

Waves were a little tricky — breaking quickly and not perfectly clean — but the group had lots of fun practising their popups and bottom turns.

Elsewhere at the surf camp our other beginners group surfed at Padang Padang for their two sessions, just a stone’s throw from the surf camp.

Beginner and Intermediate Surfing Lessons and Guiding at Toro Toro, Bali

Our beginner and intermediate group were lucky enough to enjoy Toro Toro at dawn this morning for the second day in a row. The swell had dropped slightly overnight but the lower tide meant the super playful and glassy waves were still breaking in the waist to shoulder-high range.

After a while, our group was joined in the water by a couple of other boats of surfers but there were still loads of waves to go around and everybody got their fill of long rides before heading back to camp for breakfast.

Beginner Surfing Lessons at Balangan, Bali

This morning our beginners’ group travelled to Balangan — one of our local beaches and one of the most beautiful on the Bukit peninsular — for their first session of surfing lessons.

Winds were light and the sky was clear as the sun rose over Bali with the waves breaking at a perfectly beginner-friendly knee to chest-high.

Having expert guides who can pick conditions like this makes all the difference and, as you can see from the gallery, our surfers enjoyed many great rides in uncrowded conditions.

Beginner and Intermediate Surfing Lessons at Black Stone, Bali

After a last-minute change of plan, our ever-adaptable surf instructors took our beginner and intermediate groups over to Black Stone at Nusa Dua this morning for their first session of group and private surf lessons.

With the wind having swung around, our local spots weren’t breaking as cleanly as expected but on the other side of the Bukit peninsular wind was light and offshore and the waves were lovely and clean.

Waves were breaking in the knee to chest high range and everybody had a great session.

Beginner Surfing Lessons at Padang Padang, Bali

This morning our beginners group headed down the road to Padang Padang — our local beach — for their first session of private surfing lessons.

Watched on by the resident monkeys, time was spent on the beach getting accustomed to the perfect popup technique before moving into the water to put that practice to the test.

As you can see from the gallery, there were some impressive rides in the clean, knee to chest-high conditions — a testament to both the fast-learning of our guests and the teaching of our expert instructors.

Beginner Surfing Lessons at Padang Padang, Bali

This morning our beginners made the short journey down to our local break at Padang Padang for their morning group and private surfing lessons..

The wind resulted in the waves not being as perfectly clean as they often are but conditions — breaking softly around knee-high — were still excellent for learning, as you can see from the great rides in today’s gallery.

After a fun and rewarding session, our beginners headed back to camp to refuel before another session back at Padang Padang later in the morning.
