"Amazing first time surfing experience "

I love how friendly and kind the people around Gili Island. Dex Is an excellent instructor. He was very patient and easy going. He didn’t push us much knowing we’re first timers and he helped us get through the waves step by step. He’s very encouraging even when we keep falling off the surf board. We surf at 2 surf spots throughout the 4 days of surfing and the waves is just perfect for beginners to intermediate levels. Would definitely return to surf with Dex. Friendly people, sandy beaches, cool waves, delicious local food. Lombok, Gili Trawangan is indeed a beautiful island.

"Gilligan's Island experience"

If you want to completely switch off and just enjoy life try this experience. They say Trawangan is like Kuta was 20-30 years ago - no paved roads, dirt tracks for bicycles and lovely waves and sweet beaches. Just 3 hours on the fast ferry from Benoa "Gili T" is easy to get to from the main Bali areas. If you take the package at Rumah Canaria, like i did, you stay in small huts on stilts made from local materials that are clean and tidy with great bathrooms and cooling comes from a fan and the evening breezes through the woven walls. The dirt floor compound takes you back to another age as you sit and swing in your hammock after a banana pancake breakfast cooked by Gede. One of the best elements of Rumah Canaria (Jenni is from the Canary Islands) is the amazing social life of the musical people of Trawangan. Reggae music is on every turn table and reggae bands play in every venue - perfect for the long hot nights. No shortage of cold drinks on the island there is a bar next door with bands so you don't need to ride your bike to the main entertainment area.


These amazing island people need all the support they can get following the devastating earthquakes earlier this year.

The damage is still quite visible as you ride around but the rebuild is occuring and people are starting to return.

What you get in return (outside the crazy busy main season Dec-Jan where european backpackers fill the main bars and luxury resorts) is a unique experience.

"Delicious experience"

The good think of the school is not only that a real good local professional surfer, Dex, the main teacher, has all of dedication, expertise, knowledge, kindness and passion teaching surf. The real best is that he and friends in the school are real fine and nice people. If you want the best teaching at amazing locations of the Indian sea to surf and snorkel and in the best of human waves, call him.

"Nice, but not amazing."

The staff were incredibly friendly, they really made it a great stay. The surf lessons were really fun and helpful, I stood up the first time! I only went to 1 yoga class but it was really great.

The bungalow I was staying in was very nice, especially the bathroom. It would be lovely for a romantic getaway.

We( Randi and Sherri) from Canada had the best time surfing with Dex! Couldn't have asked for a better instructor. We had amazing waves to learn on and Dex was great at explaining what we needed to do to get up! When we weren't surfing we had a blast biking around and enjoying the island. Dex, Jenni and Gede totally took care of us, had a great breakfast every morning and just the best people to spend time surfing and chilling with❤️

"Kubu Surf Camp"

Dex and his staff were great - really good surf instructors and went out of their way to show me other places around the island to snorkel or eat. They were also always around to answer any questions or just hang out. I would definitely return to Kubu surf school and recommend it to friends!

"Amazing first surf experience"

We (twi girls from switzerland) had an amazing week at the kubu surf school while staying in Baleku Hotel. We had the package including 5 surf lessons and that was perfect for us to learn the basics. Dex always showed and explained us how to improve our surf skills. After 3 days of surfing we could change the surfboard and catch intermediate waves.

The Baleku Hotel had free transfer to the city center and also free water refill and good breakfast. There is a pool, yoga props and wifi. The rooms are nice and clean. The stuff is really friendly and helpfull. We had a great time and we deffinitly recommend this surf camp!

"Amazing surf camp! "

My overall impression of the surf camp was excellent! I spent 9 days at the Kubu Camp with Dex, the sy overall impression of the surf camp was excellent! I spent 9 days at the Kubu Camp with Dex, the surf instructor, Gin and Jennyfer who helped to manage and lead the camp. The atmosphere was marvelous. Everyone was very friendly; it was like a big family. The surf camp was amazing! As a beginner, Dex explained to me  all of the basic theories that a beginner must know before surfing on the waves. For instance, how to paddle correctly when you catch a wave, how to pop up, the right position on the board etc. Also he taught me all of the points regarding safety techniques and tips which are really important. Dex was helpful during every surf session. It was hard for me to catch waves by myself, he helps me by pushing my board in order to get much more speed ! I really improved my surf skills during this week, Dex was a good instructor, passionate, who love sharing his knowledges with you. Now I have all the keys to keep practice surf by myself! I look forward seeing you guys in France or in Canaries island and catch some waves together!

About the camp itself, the accommodation was really cosy, very pleasant to live. Also bicycle are available to get around the island.

Thank you again for everything guys: I had a really awesome time with all of you!

Cheers 🤙🌊

"More than a surfing camp"

Simply put, Dex has been the best instructor all the way. I have never surfed before and so even it took quite a bit of time for me to just stand up on the board. Dex was always very encouraging and patient with me all the way until I got it.

Outside surfing we hung out and chilled together. I just had a great time with Dex and Jen. I think his leadership quality is going to benefit anyone who is interested in learning how to surf.

And another point I should make. Thanks so much Dec and Jen for helping me find my “once-lost” phone!!

"Excellent waves to gain confidence "

Good location for surfing with great waves in a beautiful setting. The instructors were excellent. Attentive and supportive of personal needs. Good at building confidence with lots of positive encouragement. Perfect for beginners and intermediate surfers coming back after a bit of a break. Lots of fun as would be expected with a surfing crowd.

We had an AMEZING time With Dex in Senggigi. Dex is the BEST teacher ever, he is really pedagogue, enthusiastic and full of positives vibes. We were 3 people who never did surfing before, and after only 3 sessions we could stand up correctly and take the wave by ourself. Dex is really professional and always tell you the way to improve wave after wave !! The supplied materiel is really high quality and the wave are perfect for all levels !

Apart from that Dex was always here to gave us the best advices for local places and local prices. If you've still energy after class you can still rent a board and keep going !!!

The Yoga part was Awesome as well, we did some Ashtanga Yoga, it suit really well with surfing. We even did a 2 hours yoga sessions on the top of a hill for the sunrise, is was outstanding !!

The place to stay is run by a family and the staff is really kind ! You feel like home !

We really like our stay in Senggigi with KUBU surf School, we Highly recommand this place and this teacher !! Dex is definitely the BEST Instructor in LOMBOK !

"Shiny days in Senggigi"

The surf lessons were great. Even during only three sessions I could feel the improvements from beginner level.

All instructors (surf &yoga) are professional and very flexible. They organized the lessons (one surf lesson may take several hours if you want) in a way that we even could spent time for a one day trip to Gili island and several half-day trips to visit other sights at lombok.

The camp is much more than surf school and yoga classes as - if you like - you will be part of the big family around dex and the baleku team. We spent several afternoons and nights joyfully together and I am still overwhelmed by the hospitality from all those people. I really loved to be part of Senggigi lifestyle for one week.

"We had a great time af Kubu Surfschool!"

Me And my friend booked a 4 day surfcamp at Kubu Surfschool and we enjoyed it a lot! We received a warm welcome of Dex, our instructor . He is very funny, friendly and enthusiastic. Because of the private surfclasses, Dex could really give personal attention to us. We never surfed before and we learned a lot from him. We would definitely recommend Kubu surfschool if you want to learn surfing and have fun!

The instructors are all really friendly and helpful. It‘s so much fun to go surfing here and the spot it perfect for beginners. You can surf here in small groups so you can catch many waves. It‘s really worth the money.

"such lovely people"

I really enjoyed meeting the locals, and chilling out at the surf beach.

Everyone was so nice and helpful, really felt at home.

My instructor Aliq was amazing, he was he great teacher, and also spend time to show me around and ensure i was taken care of during the day/night.

Lots of activities to do, even when the surf is down.

The surf isnt big, and the reef break can can pretty shallow..but the people make it soo fun. perfect for beginners...

The snorkelling was amazing, i swam with turtles everyday.

"Beautiful spicy waves "

I liked the way our instructor gave us a taste of the daily lombok surfers life. Really dedicated local surfers who have an incredible passion for taking these spicy beautiful waves.

Enough time to discover the incredible authentic Lombok by motorbike around the 2 hours surfing per day.

"Great time with Kubu surf school!"

Dex and the team are really fun. Great English speakers. They made sure I had all the best equipment and that I was surfing the best waves, if not we would move to another beach. Jack and Dex had me standing up on the board on the first day, which I wasn't expecting...I quickly progressed over the next few days.. it is so exhilarating!! They are great teachers, and actually champions on the island so I was instructed by the best! They will give you lots of attention and good instruction. Hotel was good, rooms are simple and clean. Staff are nice.

"Awesome surf lessons, a relaxed time & a lot of fun "

First of all, Dex was really great at taking care of and helping us out with anything we needed prior during and after the week of surfing & yoga. He was very flexible to accomodate all our needs, and always made sure that we were having a good time. The surf lessons qere lead by him and his brother, and their friend Zul and all three of them were fabulous. They are really great surf instructors, so that both me (who didn‘t have any prior experience) and my friend (who had some surf experience) were really happy with the lessons. And it was a lot of fun with them. Zul provided us with perfect materials (boards, shirts, even fried bananas during the break:)..). The accomodation was quite simple, but absolutely fair for the price. The staff there is very nice and helpful, too. Oh and the massage at the end was great. So, overall we were absolutely amazed by the experience and can definitely recommend anyone to book it. The highlights for us were: the great and fun surf lessons, the beautiful location right by the beach (best sunsets!) and the relaxing surroundings (as we travelled in December, we were lucky that not many other tourists were there).

"perfect first surf impressions "

Everything was very easygoing. The atmosphere was super chilled. Everyone was so friendly and we made new friends who showed us the amazing island. There are bicycles offered for free which was really nice!

We started surfing at the Gilis and had the perfect first surf impression. Dex is really the best instructor!

"Einfach Wohfühlen! :)"

Es war toll, wie man mit einbezogen wurde. Gerad, wenn man allein reist. Dex und Jenni sind tolle liebenswerte Gastgeber. Alle Sessions (surfen, Yoga,Massage) waren extrem gut! Die Insel ist traumhaft schön, klar ist nach dem schweren Beben noch viel zu tun, aber auch da können wir helfen, indem wir Lombok und die Gilis trotz allem wieder besuchen!

Dex is fantastic! He helped me feel more comfortable surfing a reef break and he gave me the techniques for pumping and duck diving. I now know what I need to do to surf bigger waves; I simply need to practice the techniques. Surfing with the Indonesian crew was so much fun! I was imitating Dex in the surf this morning by saying, 'Look, look, look, look, looooooook!' for waves! :-)
