KIMASurf's big plus is that surf guiding is inclusive and happens twice a day. Every day, up to 16 trips daily are organized for all surf levels to various breaks around Bali. In other words, you can take part in at least two guided sessions per day. Small groups are divided into different skill levels, taking current tide, as well as swell and wind conditions into account.
Kima's well-trained surf guides always surf with you in the water, giving you tips, and showing you tricks. They are familiar with the island and will tell you everything you need to know about the spot, pointing out any potential hazards. The sessions are filmed and analyzed afterward three times a week. You can also join the theory lessons that are offered three times a week.
The guided surf tours are always adapted to the given conditions and depending on the swell, an odd, secret spot may come to light. Meanwhile, slightly more advanced beginners can surf a reef break at low swell and boast about conquering Uluwatu. With the guides' years of experience, you will always be at the right spot at the right time.
For your daily routine, select the surf sessions that suit you best from the digital surf planner at the surf resort in Seminyak the day before. If you have got a real itch for surfing and do not mind getting up for an early morning surf, you even get to enjoy more than two sessions a day. The surf guides will be pleased to help you to make your choices.
For beginners, the many semi-beach breaks on the resort's doorstep are ideal for riding your first green wave and improving your take-off.
For intermediate surfers, Bali has a whole series of soft reef breaks and semi-beach breaks in store. Many perfect waves nearby or famous spots a bit further away will push your skills and you may even become an advanced surfer by the end of your stay.
Of course, it is also the advanced surfers that really get their money's worth on Bali. The best waves all around Bali are on the schedule: the legendary airport breaks and the classic Bali waves, such as Dreamland and Balangan or world-famous spots like Padang-Padang, Keramas, or Uluwatu.
We require at least minimum experience of surfing to be able to join the surf guiding sessions included in the room price. For absolute beginners / first-time surfers, joining the Learn-to-Surf course (additional 75 EUR for 3 x 2hrs on top of the package price) is mandatory to build basic skills.
The concept of the Kima Bali Surfaris encompasses the daily exploration of adjacent and further afield surf spots. Kima's years of Bali experience lead you to the island's best surf, such as the riff in Bingin, six kilometers of sandy beach at Kuta Beach or the shore break in Dreamland.
Depending on daily conditions, participants' wishes, and surf level, guests spread out across the island in small groups by car or boat. This allows you to take part in at least 14 surf sessions at different spots a week.
This surf camp takes place in Seminyak, Bali, Indonesia. With a total surface area of some 5,600 square meters, Bali is one of the smaller spice islands of Indonesia, the world’s largest archipelago. Following a struggle for independence, the former Dutch colony has been part of the Republic of Indonesia since 1945.
A hero of the freedom army from those days, Ngurah Rai, is still greatly admired and the airport in Bali’s capital city Denpasar is named after him. Before Bali’s attraction for tourism was discovered, the population lived almost exclusively from fishing, cultivation of rice, coffee, tobacco, and spices. The fertility of the soil means that up to three harvests a year are possible.
Nowadays, Bali’s coastal regions are fairly touristy with a highly developed infrastructure, particularly in the south of the island. Cinemas, restaurants, internet cafés, shopping malls, and hospitals with Western standards have been established around the hotspots Kuta, Denpasar, and Nusa Dua. However, large stretches of the interior around the volcanoes and the north and east coast still boast an unspoiled nature. And here, traditional Balinese village life, Kampung, is still very much alive. The breathtaking scenery with its luxuriant, tropical vegetation and the famous rice terraces is the setting for ancient ceremonies and worship. The mystical atmosphere is still evident.
A few minutes walk from your room are some legendary beach breaks such as HalfWay, Padma, Gado-Gado, and KuDeTa. These breaks are perfect for beginners and are an ideal contrast to the daily surfaris with the camp cars to all Bali surf spots. Numerous shops, bars, and restaurants are within walking distance. You can reach the party and shopping hotspot, Kuta, after a five-minute taxi ride or a 15-minute walk along the beach.
