Bali is the ultimate destination for those who want to learn to surf. The combination of perfect waves, warm climate, friendly people, and good food makes it one of the best surf destinations in the world. Come surf in Canggu with Lapoint Camps and let them make your surf trip to Bali the best one ever!
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.
You can choose which level suits you best based on the below descriptions of each level:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The instructors will not give out equipment to the guests before their first surf lesson, so they have the right equipment for their level.

Bali is famous for its world-class waves, and for anybody interested in learning how to surf, this is paradise. We offer both lessons and the possibility to free-surf to allow the guests to spend as much time as possible in the water. Where we surf depends on the weather, and we drive to different spots on the island to have the lessons in the best conditions.
Usually the different lessons goes to these spots:
'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.
'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.
