Welcome to Santai Surf. Balinese owned & operated since 2012.

Join our family run business & share our passion! Be part of the excitement & enjoy an unforgettable amazing local surf experience on the beautiful Island of Bali.

We offer private, semi-private, group surf lessons & surf guiding to beginner & intermediate surfers. Without the fancy brand endorsements or a stylishly furnished office, we focus on the surfing, at half the price of most surf schools! We pride ourselves in great value so everyone can surf. Our semi-private lessons are 50-75% cheaper than western owned competitors whilst our private lessons are over 25-50% lower than other surf schools. Photos are available on request to capture your surf experience.

In an ever-changing Bali we are trying to retain the original community spirit & harmony through our work. We are committed to supporting other local business's, through money generated from board rentals, beverages & sun beds.

** We are also donating various items to villages across Bali so if you have anything to donate from children's items (toys/books/clothes) to hotel toiletries to adults items (clothes/shoes), please contact us or drop them off at our beach location with our staff **

Previously an instructor of the Ripcurl School of Surf & Kima Surf Camp, family man Gede (owner & head instructor) is experienced & professional with vast knowledge about surf breaks & waves in Bali. Henney, his wife is behind the scenes organising & over seeing everything with emphasis on communication & quality of service.

Besides being internationally qualified by the Academy of Surfing Instructors in surf instruction, first aid & lifesaving, Gede will be undertaking training to become a lifeguard in 2017. Our small team of loyal instructors deliver a more personable experience so please book in advance or come see us as we have limited spaces in each lesson.

  • Had a blast yesterday with Santai surf. They do a great job of tailoring the lesson for you based on your experience and what types of waves you feel comfortable catching - while also challenging you....  more »
  • We are total beginner and we had our first lesson with Gede, we had a lot of fun and felt total save in the water. They have also Rashguard sizes up to 3XL. Ricky made some really nice pictures...  more »
  • Tried out Santa Surf School today and had an excellent time. Had a quick but thorough lesson on the beach to get form and technique down before heading into the water. Then we did two one-on-one surf sessions that had me up and riding the waves in no time. Instructor Jojo was solid with his instructions and encouragement, definite recommend to anyone looking to learn or improve their surfing.
  • We took 3 lessons at Santai, dad and three daughters (21, 17 & 11) and absolutely loved it! The team is very friendly and professional, easy to understand and helpful. Even in a group lesson of three people the instructor (Jojo, whom we loved) was able to help us all equally and no one felt neglected. If you are looking to learn how to surf, we definitely recommend Santai!
