The surf camp is situated in the green and lush area of Canggu, which is an area of traditional Balinese rice fields surrounded by small villages. Its relaxed ambience and proximity to Kuta and Seminyak makes it popular for those seeking a mellow experience, but still with access to what the cities offer.

The camp, consisting of one big villa and four smaller houses, has a family style feeling. This makes the camp a perfect place to make new friends. Its two pools, chill-out areas, volleyball court, slackline, and sun beds are all encompassed by a traditional Balinese garden.

In-between the houses we have two dining areas and a gazebo lounge. This is where we hang out and relax between surf sessions. There is usually a light breeze here, so it's the perfect place to be - even on the warmest days.

The bungalows are designed for two to three people, with both double rooms and dorm configuration. All rooms have private baths and A/C and the double room bungalows also have cable TV and DVD. In the common area, you have the possibility to lock your valuables in small lockers. The bungalows have an additional locker in their room.

Program

You can choose which level suits you best based on the below descriptions of each level:

LEVEL 1

  • Learn the basics of surfing
  • Be able to catch white water waves on a regular basis
  • Become comfortable in the white water waves

Who is level 1 for?

This course is for you that have never surfed before, or that haven’t surfed in a while and want to go through the basics one more time. Lapoint Camps will give you a fun and encouraging introduction to surfing, and share the stoke when you catch your very first waves. In groups of six surfers per instructor, they’ll make sure that you develop your skills in line with your level and that you’ll catch as many waves possible. It’s all about having fun together with the other surfers.

What kind of waves will you be surfing?

You’ll be surfing easy waves on surrounding sand beaches and easy reef breaks where you’ll have a safe and comfortable experience when you explore the waves for the first time. The instructors will pick the best part of the beach where you will be able to catch the most white water wash and broken waves and have as much fun as possible.

Theory included

  • History of surfing - You will learn where and when it all started, the type of boards; short to very long ones and how they have developed over the years.
  • Ocean awareness - The types of rips, waves, weather, conditions, tides and how they work, places to surf, different types of waves; beach, point, and reef breaks. You’ll go through how waves form in the ocean, the surf spots in the area of the camp, and inform about the ones that are best suited for beginners.
  • Surfing terms - Learn the language of surfing; speed, trimming, pop up, crowd, and more.
  • Surf safety and etiquette - You’ll go through how to behave in the water, how to handle the board in and outside the water, how to handle the crowd of other surfers, how to fall after you have surfed a wave, and where in the water you should be as a beginner.
  • Surf equipment - An introduction of all surf gear; type of boards, fins, leash, wetsuit, reef boots, wax, etc. You’ll also go through the different part of the board; nose, tail, up, down, etc.
  • Board control - How to position yourself on the board, paddling, handling, and sit on the board. How to handle the board in order not to hurt yourself or anyone else around you.
  • Take-off - Learn how to do the perfect pop-up, and get up on your board. You’ll also learn when to do the pop-up so you surf on top of the wave and don’t sink through.
  • Surfing the whitewater - Start with belly rides to understand when the whitewater has the most power, and move over to standing up on your board.
  • Individual feedback - The teacher will see the things you need to improve, and help you so you’ll achieve the goals of the course and avoid the usual mistakes beginners do.

LEVEL 2

  • You’re catching white water waves on a regular basis
  • Get out to the lineup and surf green waves
  • Learn how to go right and left on a wave

Who is level 2 for?

This level is designed for those of you that have passed the level 1 or can catch and ride a whitewater wave on your own. Level 2 will focus on getting to the outside (lineup) in waist high waves. Lapoint Camps will teach you to catch green waves and ride the face of the wave instead of going straight in the white water.

What kind of waves will you be surfing?

You’ll be targeting waist high green waves, and catch them just when they’re about to break. Every day, your instructor will take you to the surf spot that is best suited to catch as many green waves as possible.

Theory included

  • The lineup - In this course, you will enter a new area of the water called the lineup. In this region of the ocean, all type of surfers except the beginners hang out. There are many written and unwritten rules to follow when you’re entering this region.
  • Surf safety, surf etiquette, and priority rules - How to behave in the water, how to handle the crowd, how to position yourself in the lineup, how to know when it’s your turn to catch a wave, how to know where to position yourself when you take off on a wave, how to fall after you have surfed a wave, how and where to paddle back out to not be in the way or in the danger of hurting yourself or other surfers.
  • Ocean awareness - In this course, you will no longer just be on the inside / sand bank where it's possible to stand and hold your board, you will now be on the outside where it’s deeper and not possible to stand on the bottom. Therefore, it’s very important to know all the factors in the ocean; how the rips are running, how the tides are working, the waves, weather and conditions. You will refresh on all the aspects on the ocean, so you eventually can be on your own surfing different type of breaks. You’ll also get some info about some spots near the camp, where you can practice in between the surf lessons.
  • Spot guiding - If you're taking the level 2 course, you know by now that it’s not just to grab a board and jump in and surf. The local surf teacher will throughout the week take you to the best spot quality waves for this level 2 course. This means that you’ll get all the knowledge of what spots work best on different tides, swell directions and wind directions, so you can use your time not finding spots, but surfing the best ones at the correct time.
  • Individual coaching - The coach will see these things you need to improve on and tell you what to do differently in order to take your surfing to the next level.
  • Surf equipment - There are many types of boards for different types of waves and levels of the surfer. You are in the zone where you might be ready to start looking at other boards than just the beginner longboard. The next step in line is the mini Malibu - a short version of the longboard, you’ll be able to try this type of board during this week.
  • Surf up to waist high green waves - The goal for this course is to be able to catch waves on your own, stand up, and surf down the line on up to waist high waves both to both the left and right.
  • Surfing terms - Learn the language of surfing; face, down the line, speed, trimming, lefts/ rights, crowd, etc.
  • Board control in the lineup - Refresh how to position yourself on the board and how to paddle, handle, and sit on the board - this has to be perfect when entering the lineup.
  • Passing through the waves techniques - turtle roll and duck dive.
  • Take-off - Refresh the pop-up so this is perfect for catching a green wave, this has to be 100 percent perfect for you to be able to make it. The take-off is crucial when catching a green wave; it has to be done just after you feel that you are going down the face of the wave and before you reach the bottom.

LEVEL 3

  • Improve your spot analysis and wave reading skills
  • Develop surfing technique and confidence with video coaching
  • Boost water safety
  • Get comfortable surfing independently

Who is level 3 for?

This level is designed for those of you that have passed the level 2 course or can catch waist high green waves on your own and surf frontside and backside. You’re not yet confident in head high waves on your own but you’ll surf easy reefs, point, and beach breaks with all the knowledge you need to feel confident to surf most breaks, focusing on entry and exit from the break, surf etiquette and which peak is the best for your level of surfing. This course has a max limit of six surfers per week.

What kind of waves will you be surfing?

During this course, you’ll learn to be comfortable in a bit overhead conditions, and Lapoint Camps will always be looking for the waves where you can have the best progress and most fun. Your instructor will take you to the best suited spot in the area each day, that being reef, point, and beach breaks.

Theory included

  • The lineup - In this course, you become more confident in the lineup. There are many factors to think about in the lineup, let alone being able to catch a wave. You’ll go through what you’ll need to learn to be able to have a better time when you’re out in the lineup, so you’ll catch loads of waves and have a great time yourself and with the other surfers around you.
  • Surf safety, surf etiquette, and priority rules - By now, you know how important it is to read the ocean before jumping in and to follow the written and unwritten rules of surfing. It’s now crucial to always know where to enter the surf spot so you don’t get hurt, where does the rips run (knowing this is everything), how to do a good duck dive, where to paddle out in the lineup so no one runs you over because you are in the way, and know when it’s your turn to catch a wave. These are just a few things you will go through in this course. By knowing this, you won’t hurt anyone else or yourself, you will be much more confident and catch plenty more waves.
  • Ocean awareness - You now know how important it’s knowing the factors of the ocean, how the rips are running, how the tides are working, the waves, weather, and conditions. Lapoint Camps will refresh all this and give you a lesson on how to read the different types of swell charts of the spots you’re surfing on this course. This will teach you to know when to surf different type of spots to what time – both around the camp, but also on your home location if you want any help with this.
  • Spot guiding - Again, by now you know it’s not just to grab a board and jump in the water and surf. You need to do a lot of preparations checking the swell charts, going to different spots, and see how they behave. Swell charts are good, but they are not always spot on with their forecast. That’s why you always have to check the spot before you jump in, a good thing is to check how surfers that are already out there manage the conditions – do they catch a lot of waves? Is the current strong so it’s hard to be on the take off spot? All this is key information knowing before you get out there and Lapoint Camps will take you through all this in this course.
  • Individual coaching - The coach will mostly be in the water to help and guide you to make the right choices. The coach will see to that all of you in the group gets all the knowledge you need. She / he has to be 100 percent sure that you as a guest have understood and learned all the things that you go through on this course.
  • Surf equipment - There are many types of boards for different types of waves and levels of a surfer. You’ll get individual info on regarding what type and size of board you should use on different type of waves. Some waves are soft and you might need something wider and with a lot of volume, others are more steep and powerful and you might need more rocker but still with good volume under the chest to get easy into the waves. Lapoint Camps have a variety of boards at the camps, so you can test different equipment to find what you should be using.
  • Get comfortable in up to head high waves on your own - The goal for this course is for you to be able to get secure and comfortable on your own in head high surf on different type of breaks; from reef, point or beach breaks. Lapoint Camps will also help you with the basic technique on bottom turn, trimming, manoeuvres, duck dive, and more.
  • Surfing terms - The language of surfing; face, down the line, speed, bottom turn, trimming, pocket / power source, lefts / rights, crowd, cut backs, etc.
  • Board control in the lineup - Lapoint Camps will polish on your paddle technique, how you move in a lineup, and how you sit and swing around when a set comes. All this is key to catch a lot of waves in the lineup, especially when it’s you and 30 other surfers out there.
  • The duck dive - This needs to be good so you don’t lose a lot of energy on extra paddling. You’ll get a few tips on how to do the duck dive as good as possible.
  • Take-off technique - If this is not 100 percent correct, you might lose that perfect right hander that you see rolling away in front of you because you were a bit slow and had the wrong weight on the heels when jumping on the board. The same goes for the timing: you need to be in the perfect spot and pop up in the perfect moment in order to set up the wave. If you’re too far in, you might get the lip in the back, and unless you are a really good surfer, you’re not gonna be able to get back to the open face. Maybe you’re too far out and you end up not catching the wave. You will work on all these aspects on this course.
  • Video analysis - Lapoint Camps will film at least one session, so you get some visual feedback. The camera doesn’t lie, and is one of the best tools to become a better surfer.

A typical day

A normal day usually starts off with an epic breakfast at the camp, and then either down to the local beach break or a short drive to a better breaking wave where you’ll do a run-through of the day, warm up, and head out in the surf. After two hours in the water, it’s time for lunch, chill at the beach, pool time, or maybe a trip into town. Lapoint Camps will arrange dinner after sunset, and maybe the surf knocked you out so good that a film is what you want to spend the evening with, or maybe you want a drink or two - it’s totally up to you.

Surf spot for lessons

Usually the different lessons goes to these spots:

  • Level 1 and 2 - Legian and Sanur
  • Level 3 - Sanur and Kedungu

Nearby beginner spot

'Batu Belong' have long soft longboard rides but can be very crowded, while 'Legian' and 'Kuta' have great new beginner beach breaks. 'Berawa' is also a good surf spot with a beautiful beach and a big beach bar with a pool to chill after surf. With only a 10-minute walk, you will have your feet planted on the beautiful beaches of Canggu.

Nearby advanced spot

'Echo Beach' have both a beach break and three great reef spots for advanced surfers. It can get pretty crowded and competitive but the waves are world class waves. 'Old Mans' has great waves for advanced longboarders. With only a 10-minute walk, you will have your feet planted on the beautiful beaches of Canggu.

Old Man's is a really cool restaurant in Canggu, and everyone is recommended to try it out. It is located a couple of meters up from Batu Belong beach. It's especially nice to be there to see the sunset.

A little drive up north from the camp, you find Tanah Lot, an amazing temple in the water. When it's low tide, you can walk over to the temple and see it up close. This is not possible when it's high tide - although it's just as special (or maybe more) to be there on high tide as the temple looks stunning with all the water surrounding it.

In Ubud, there is a monkey forest with monkeys walking freely around in the forest and temple. There is also some really fabulous rice terraces in Ubud that is definitely worth a trip.

In Uluwatu, there is a really famous bar, called Single Fin bar. It is located on top of some cliffs above Uluwatu surf spot, also a really famous surf spot, who provides first class waves. To see the pro surfers ripping it in the water while the sun is setting is just beyond magical from Single Fin. Bingin Beach is a beach that is really worth the trip, has beautiful surroundings and also high class waves.
