Bali


PRESENTATION

Your looking for a cool camp where you can chill out, a place that’s not overcrowded and far from the madding crowd?
Then " Padang House " is the one  for you.
Our Surf house is half an hour’s drive from Kuta on the Bukit peninsula.
And from there it’s only a few minutes to Bali’s fantastic white beaches.
The really awesome spots like Uluwatu, Bingin, Impossibles and Padang are all within a ten minutes’ drive. 

The Team  

The camp was set up by soul-surfer Josh, known as “Dude” and has been managed by him ever since.
Josh has been surfing since he was seven and since then has been all over the world looking for waves.
Bali is now what he calls home and together with his Portuguese wife, Ana he’ll make sure your daily desire for surf is satisfied.
He’s been teaching surfing now for ten years and will be able to help you with professional and advice tips.
At Padang Camp Teko is the man for planning your surfing. He’s a local and an experienced surfer and so he always knows when, where and for whom the best break is.
He’s been working for the camp for three years and knows the spots and conditions like no other.
The real heart and soul of the camp is Sunny. Not only are her massages a delight for aching muscles, she’ll also spoil you with her culinary skills.
Her wonderful Balinese cuisine is legendary!
Then there are Made “Mr. Boss” and his son, Nyoman known as “Bones”. They make sure everything’s ok at the camp – rooms, garden etc.
If you like, Made will also be pleased to give you a guided tour of the island.

Surf Guiding  

At Padang Kima Surf Camp you can either use the numerous breaks on our doorstep, or take off with your guide on one of our camp mopeds or cars to do the rounds of the near-by spots.
The surf guide certainly knows his way around and can take you to the right spot where the surf is at its best, depending on the tide and swell.
Plans for the next day are made at dinner so you’re well briefed for the first morning session

Accomodation & Board  

The camp is made up of traditional Balinese open bungalows and a large main house embedded in a lovely, spacious garden (1400 m²).
The bungalows sleep 8 persons – but are still comfortable.
For couples or people who prefer to be on their own, there is a double bungalow or villas with their own bathrooms.

Our camp cook, Sunny will set you up every morning with a great breakfast and in the evening she conjures up delicious local and international dishes.
Just around the corner there’s also a good Mex and smaller snack bars.

A place to Chill  

After a hard day’s surf a place to chill can always be found in the tropical garden, on the large terrace, in the camp house or pavilion.
There’s an internet café just a couple of minutes’ walk away, where you can surf the internet and at the same time enjoy some culinary treats

Mobility  

Kuta is only an hour’s drive from the Surf Camp. There you’ll find not only cinemas with English language movies, costing something like 2 €, but also the supposedly greatest density of surf shops in the whole world.
But we don’t just have perfect waves, the countryside is awesome and certainly well worth exploring: waterfalls, rice terraces, hot springs, Lake Batur, the largest Hindu temple at the foot of Bali’s highest mountain and the volcano Agung.
These are just a few of the sights worth seeing.
Bali has everything to offer, from organised climbing tours, horse-riding on the beach, spoil-yourself programme in a spa – the only weak point is winter sports.
If you want to take the ultimate plunge, we can organise scuba diving trips for you.
If surfing should for some reason not be possible we’ll take you on an excursion. Or if you want to find your own way around, you can use our camp mopeds or other cheap methods of transport

Material  

Our material pool has been put together to suit the conditions we have here:
short boards (6'0'' - 7'0''), funshapes and mini-malibus from 7’0” - 8’0” for our beginners.
Leashes are included in the rental. If you don't mind the haul, please feel free to bring your own equipment or favourite board with you, so you can put them to the ultimate test here.
Board shorts, booties and wax can be had here at reasonable prices
