Surf Camp - What to Expect
Kura Kura offers surf sessions everyday, and conditions permitting we offer two daily sessions. Our instructor to surfer ratio is one of the highest on the island to ensure each of our guests gets a hand-on experience to help them excel in their surfing abilities. All while maxing out the stoke.
We typically split into two teams: Beginners and Intermediate / Advance. To learn more, and find out which group you best fit with, kindly refer to the FAQ below.
A usual day with us starts with a complimentary team breakfast after which groups are formed based on skill level and other factors. Our manager will then pair up local guides with respective groups and we'll be on our way!
After spending the morning hours in the warm waters of Indonesia, we then usually grab lunch as a team at the break we were surfing. Or, time allowing, we welcome our guests back to our lovely getaway where they can order lunch at our restaurant or adventure into town for some local flavors.
Guests then have the option to regroup for an afternoon surf, conditions permitting. Guests are free to choose whether to join the second surf (and also the first one, but c'mon - we're here to surf).
Zero surf experience or only tried surfing a few times before.
You surfed already and you might be able to pop up. But you still have limited skill and need help catching unbroken waves.
Intermediate / Advanced
You are independent in the lineup and looking to improve basic manoeuvres. You can paddle to the back safely and most of the time catch your own unbroken waves.
You are comfortable in most conditions and have surfed for at least a few years. You can generate speed and attempt some advanced moves. Some of you might even be getting barreled and throwing big sprays off the top.
I only have a few days in Lombok, do you offer daily surf lessons / customize packages?"We offer customizable packages to fit your itinerary! Drop us a message and we will figure out an option that works best with your limited time in Lombok* *prices and availability subject to change
Can I arrive on another day apart from Saturday?The camp refreshes every Saturday to keep the guest flow organised. This way, we can keep a close eye on group progress. We egenerally start our beginners on a theoretical class and easy surf on the first two days, so you'll miss that if arrive on a different day. We'd really appreciate if you could make the effort of arriving on a Saturday. However, our accomodations are available to you any time at our regular nightly rates, so come join us and stay a while before the next weekly class schedule starts (subject to available rooms). If you're an intermediate/advanced surfer who would like to stay for longer than a week, arriving on other days might be possible, in this case send us an email to ask for availability.
What time should I arrive on Saturday?Our check-in is at noon. We do not provide instruction on arrivals day, so it's completely up to you. If you want to show up early and hang out by the pool or grab a tasty bite at our restaurant, we'd be stoked to have you!
How many times do we surf a day?Conditions permitting, we aim to surf twice a day, each session lasting around 1,5 - 2 hours. We are at the mercy of mother nature, however, so things do change. Don't worry though - we'll be sure to get you in the water.
How's a typical day at Kura Kura?Given the dynamic and ever-changing ocean conditions, we like to take things day-by-day. Our lead forecaster analyzes swell and weather conditions, and then we establish a timeline to maximize time in the water. Typically, you'll wake up to a delicious complimentary team breakfast, group up to surf, have lunch and then surf again. We try to surf twice a day, although this really depends on the conditions. It's also not unusaly for us to leave the home-base in the morning, surf twice and come back in the afternoon. Surfing always gets priority. In between or after surf trips, we slot in some small excursions like sunset viewing, monkey hangs, shaping bay visits, or yoga etc. Usually the day with the worst conditions or when guests needs a break, we take a trip to the waterfalls.
We're a group of guests with different surf levels. How does this work?When we have different level surfers, we split into 2 teams. Beginners start on a instagram-worthy white sand beach break for at least 2 days while our intermediate surf group will start surfing the local reef breaks from day one. Normally by day three, beginners will be introduced to surfing reef breaks, but this depends on progress and ability.
I am a beginner, what can I expect?"On Sunday morning, you'll have a theoretical class and tactical surf training before heading out to the beach. You'll learn about basic know-how, safety and how to handle your surfboard. Then, upon arrival at Selong Belanak Beach, you'll practice your pop-ups a few times on the sand before going in the water. You may be encouraged into waves at first by our surf guides, this helps you to get the feel of being on the wave. You'll slowly start to paddle into waves independently, read the waves and correctly position yourself. Step by step, you'll move on to surfing green waves. By day 3 or 4, you'll join the intermediate surfers on reef breaks. Before this, we'll tell you about rip currents, channels, surf etiquette and how it is different from surfing the beach break. We will take pictures on your first or second day, after surf, we will have a photo review and give you feedback on how to improve. There is also a surfing manual booklet in your room, which you may find helpful.
I am an intermediate, what can I expect?"We consider intermediates as people who can take green waves on their own, aren comfortable in the water and know how to handle themselves in the line up. You'll head straight to the reef breaks from day one! Don't be intimidated by the term reef breaks, Lombok waves tend to be mellow and we always try to go on a higher tide so it's much easier for you to get that perfect wave. In the line up, stay close to our guides as they will take you to the right spots. They can be shy in the beginning, so don't be afraid to ask them questions or feedback. We will take pictures of your sessions, then analyze your surfing during a photo review session. We'll give you proven tips and tricks on how to improve your technique. You're welcome to bring your board. If not, we have selection of surfboards. If there is nothing to your liking, we'd be happy to fins the right board for you from one of our partners.
I am an advanced surfer, what can I expect?"Chances are you've probably surfed for years, and love a good, challenging wave. You're looking for the best waves to surf in Lombok, now let us do the work for you and show you where they are. Often times, advanced surfers are surprised by how beneficial this "local knowledge" is. Even though you don't need help in the water, we've been surfing spots all around Lombok for years and know all the breaks so you don't have to spend hours researching where to go and looking for that secret spot you'll never find. We will take pictures throughout the week and give you valuable feedback even though you might shred harder than us. Coaching is part of what we offer our advanced surfers, and an analytic set of eyes is exactly what you might need to step up your game in the water.
Are surfboards included in the package?Yes! Surfboards are provided. For beginners, you'll start on a soft top, then as you advance, we may switch to a more hard top board for you. For intermediate surfers, we have a versatile surfboard collection (quiver). Don't see anything you like? No problem! We'll work with you to identify that magic board and see if we can find it in town. We'll even comp the board rental! You are welcome to bring your own board, however there will be no discount on the packages. Plus, you get to experiment with whichever board you fancy from our collection.
Can I have private 1-1 surf lessons during camp?Our core philosophy is that we learn as a team, improve as a team and shred as a team. We have found that our guests improve much quicker, have a lot more fun and learn from eachother as we surf as a team. However, if you are keen on improving your abilities, we do offer 1-1 private instruction for addiiotnal fees, outside of regular group session hours.
What is the general age group of the guests?There is no average age group that we receive - it varies from week to week. Typically, though, our guest age varies from early 20's to mid 40's. We have found that we are all on the same energy level and stoke level though, so even with this age range, all are stoked and coexist beaufiully. Our oldest guest was 64 at the time and our youngest ever was 14. They both rip.
I'm travelling from the Gilis / Bali by boat, can you pick us up from the harbour?"We can arrange for a pickup at a cost. Check out our Getting There page to learn more.
I don't need airport pickup, can I trade it for airport transfer when I leave?"Only airport pick up is included and non-transferrable. However, airport transfer can be easily arranged at check out with our receptionist for 120,000IDR, paid directly to the driver.
Do you have wifi?Yes we provide WiFi for all our guests within the property. You can also get a local sim card about 100,000IDR with data packages, this way you will have internet on your phone and you can connect your computer via hotspot from the phone.
How close are we to town?We are a 3 minutes scooter ride to town, 15-20 minutes if you walk. Most people rent a scooter/motorbike here because it's just so convenient. Food, bar, beach, exploring. We can hook you up with a scooter at a very reasonable price. You can even share one, if you'd like. If you've never ridden a scooter before, maybe this is your chance to give it a go! Kind of just like a faster bicycle. Or just hope there's a passenger seat available. Just remember to drive on the left.
Why do the cats have no tails?It's genetic, they're born that way. Nobody would have the time to cut all the cats tails in Kuta!
Pick up from Lembar or Bangsal HarbourPick up from either of these harbours are not included, but we are happy to make the arrangements for you. Lembar Harbour: 300,000IDR Bangsal Harbour: 400,000IDR Both paid directly to the driver.
