About Us

Founder of Kura Kura Surf Camp Lombok surfing a wave

Hi, welcome to Kura Kura Surf Camp. Here is a little bit about us, for those who like to read.  

I am Tim, the Belgian founder of Kura Kura. "Kura Kura" which means tortoise in Indonesian language, refers to these peaceful majestic creatures and our respect for their slow pace in life. 


I started surfing when I was 25 years old, moving all around Europe in a little camper van. Soon I wanted nothing more than to keep surfing and traveling. So I quit my job and started working summertime on the surf camps in Europe, while wintertime I would escape Europe and spend my time looking for the best waves in Indonesia. 

I lost my heart here in Indonesia and every time I went back to Europe it felt like I walked away from home. At the end of 2015, I decided to move here and start doing what I love to do.  


Lombok, often referred to as Bali like it used to be. A beautiful island in Indonesia rich in culture and good waves. I was lucky to meet some amazing people who are helping me to make Kura Kura Surf Camp a place you'll never forget.  


Thank you for visiting our site, hopefully, sometime we may welcome you at
