PRESENTATION

A swell check from the comfort of your bed?

Discovering the island, with its many surf spots and numerous other attractions is at the heart of our Kima Surf Camp. Mobility is a big thing for KimaSurf. We organise up to 12 guided Surfaris to the various surf spots every day

This way we make sure that  every surfer (beginners, intermediates or advanced surfers) is on the right wave at the right time. Accompanied by our guides by car and boat, you'll be able to discover the perfect waves all around this more than divine island.

Our Surf House “The Green Room Canggu” is about 8 km North of the heaving tourist stronghold, Kuta, directly on the so-called eco-beach.

First-class semi-beach breaks are just waiting for you here, on your own doorstep, so to speak. These are suitable for beginners, intermediates and advanced surfers. It’s only a few minutes’ walk from the Surf Camp to the perfect reef and beach breaks, Canggu and Perenenan.

Far from the madding crowds of the tourist strongholds, here, surrounded by rice fields and palm groves, it’s so easy to slip into an eat-sleep-surf rhythm.  Chilling out with a cold after-surf beer you can enjoy the spectacular sunset from the comfort of our Camp, or if the mood takes you, you can hit Kuta for a spontaneous shopping trip.

In the laid-back Canggu Surf Camp Bali you have all the options. If you prefer to be out and about on your own, you can use our minibuses, jeeps and mountain bikes free of charge – just check with us.

The Canggu Surf Camp  

For your comfort and to let you really enjoy your time before and after surfing we've made every effort to create a genuine Bali feeling in our choice of accommodation.

The Base Surf Camp is “The Green Room Canggu” Hotel, some 8 km from Kuta and directly on the beach on Bali's west coast. A laid-back, relaxing holiday is guaranteed here in the midst of rice fields and just a stone’s throw away from the water. Shopping, dining, clubbing facilities are all easy to reach with our own minibuses, jeeps or by taxi.

The four-bed and double rooms (all with their own bathroom and terrace) are situated around a natural stone pool in the tropical garden. All rooms are up to western standards with hot water and ventilators.

There are also two luxurious private villas with air conditioning, flat-screen TV, Hifi/DVD/iPOD station, an open bathroom with shower, a kitchen and chill area. These villas are separate from the hotel complex and have their own private pools and tropical garden.

From the terraces and the entire complex you have a fantastic view over the sea and our homebreaks. Our traditional Bali houses with HiFi/DVD, the beach bar and the fantastic vista make it the ideal place for hanging out between surfing trips: relaxing, wining and dining, whatever you fancy... 
It goes without saying that there is a W-LAN Internet connection available for all our guests.

The History  

In 1989 it was "Pencak Silat", a type of martial arts, that brought Ari to a training camp in Indonesia, where he was meant to be preparing for competitions in the homeland of this old Malaysian martial arts.

However, it wasn't long before he got hooked on something completely different.......surfing, and the enchanting way and mentality of the people here. And thus the idea of a Bali Surfari was born. The years that followed saw him laying the foundation for the first  Kima Bali Surf Camp along with his best mate, Boris.

KimaSurf has now been organising Surf Camps and Surfaris since 1995. Of course lots of things have changed since then, but one thing still remains: it's a get-together of like-minded people with the one and the same passion - surfing as a life-style.

We all have one commitment: working hard to make the idea of the Bali Surf Camp  an unforgettable experience for you.

Surf Guiding  

Kima Bali Surf Camp’s big plus is that surf guiding is inclusive!

The whole week we organize up to twelve trips for all surf levels to various breaks all round Bali. What this means is that you can take part in at least two guided session per day.
 If you need a surf break you have the opportunity to book one of the inland Culture and Sport Trips organised by Kima Bali Surf Camps

The surf spots we head for are graded according to the various surf levels and selected depending on the tide, swell and wind conditions.

Our guides are all trained in life-saving (auch im Deutschen ‘life’ nicht ‘live’, they’re familiar with the island, drive safely and can give you competent briefing on the spot.

Here they’ll point out the characteristics of reef surfing or any possible hazards. The guides always surf with you in the water, giving you tips and showing you tricks.

Six times a week the sessions are filmed so that the analysis afterwards can help you identify the mistakes you’re making and sort these out.

You can also take part in the theory lessons on material maintenance, wave know-how and surf rules.

At the Surf Camp Canggu it’s only two minutes from bed to beach. Two perfect semi-beach breaks with left and right waves are right on the doorstep. These breaks are ideal for all surfers – beginners, intermediates and advanced surfers. But if you like it a bit harder, it’s only a two-minute walk to the reef breaks of the eco-beach Perenenan and Canggu Sandbar.

Our guided tours are always adapted to the given conditions, that means that depending on the swell the odd secret spot might come to light. On the other hand, you might, even as a beginner, be able to ride a reef break and then boast at the end of your holiday that you mastered Uluwatu .With our years of experience you’ll always be at the right spot at the right time!

Daily proceeds

On the evening before choose the surf sessions that suit you best – depending on your preferences and skills and simply enter your name in the list. If you’re really surf-crazy and not put off by the thought of an early-morning surf, you can do more than the usual two sessions a day. Our surf guides will be pleased to help you make your choice.

* Beginners
For beginners the many semi-beach breaks on our doorstep are ideal for riding your first green wave and improving your take-off. We also regularly go to the famous beach breaks around Kuta, e.g. HalfWay and DoubleSix. We’ve been checking out these spots for years now and they’ve certainly proved their worth. Even experienced surfers can get a perfect ride here.

* Intermediates

For intermediate surfers Bali has a whole series of soft reef breaks and semi-beach breaks in store. Many perfect waves nearby or famous spots a bit further away will push your skills and maybe even make you an advanced surfer by the end of your stay.

* Advanced
Of course it is the advanced surfers that really get their money’s worth on Bali. The best waves all round Bali are on our schedule: the legendary Airport breaks, the classic Bali waves such as Dreamland and Balangan or the world famous spots like Padang-Padang, Keramas or Uluwatu. As something of an institution here, we obviously know a few unknown and unsurfed waves – the ones the guidebooks don’t know.

The diversity and sheer perfection of the waves is enough to make any surfer's heart miss a beat. No matter what time of the year, Bali has a constant surf and ideal conditions for both beginners, intermediates and pro's. And don't worry about the swell - that’s 100% guaranteed!

Food & Drinks  

Our Kima Bali surf camp Canggu restaurant is open from 7 am to 11 pm and offers various international and local dishes, created by our internationally experienced chef. We only use fresh ingredients and cater for a variety of options such as vegan and vegetarian.

INDONESIAN FOOD
The cost of living in Bali is fairly low. A healthy and filling meal (e.g. fish with a side dish) costs around 3 €. The obligatory evening beer on the beach is likely to be the most expensive thing on the healthy Indonesian food menu. Fruit salad or Nasi/Mie Goreng (fried rice/noodles) can be found even on the most remote beaches. Our restaurant in the Canggu surf camp also offers a variety of Indonesian dishes.
INTERNATIONAL FOOD

In Canggu there are plenty of good restaurants with high-quality food that cater to western tastes. You’ll find all sorts of food: German, Persian, Italian, Japanese, Greek and Brazilian, plus international fast food chains.

Mobility  

On the move -  by land and sea - our strong point
Discovering Bali


The major concept of the Kima Bali Surf Camp is to get to know what's near and far in Bali. Whether a shore break in Dreamland, reef of Bingin or Kuta´s 6 km-long sandy beach: our long-term experience of Bali promises to take you to the best waves all around the island. Depending on the day's conditions, what the participants want to do and their surfing level, our guests take off in small groups by car or boat over and around the island .

This way you can take part in at least 14 surf sessions at the various spots in any one week.

Here on the island you don’t have to miss out on culture and other activities. Hindu Bali offers not only endless temples, royal palaces and rice terraces in the island’s interior, the coastal towns have loads of opportunities for shopping, dining and hanging out with the right people.

For the sports fans there is a wide spectrum: diving, wake/kiteboarding, stand-up paddling, volcano trekking, rafting, mountain biking or tree top climbing.

Culture and Sport Trips

So that you can get to know Bali’s inland we, at Kima Surf Camp, also offer organised culture and sport trips with a driver at the weekend.

Beach Day Trips
If surfing during the week is not enough for you, you can join in one of the beach day trips. We’ll take you to Bali’s coolest surf beaches, e.g. Dreamland, Uluwatu or Balangan, where you can bask in the sun to your heart’s content or surf the perfect waves. The beach day trips are always on a Sunday and are included in the camp price.
