SURFING IN BALI FOR BEGINNERS

Dawn Patrol Bali – beginner surf lessons are the perfect way to try surfing for the first time. Bali has long been recognised as home to some of the best quality waves in the world. It is a playground for expert surfers with countless incredible beaches. This also makes it perfect for novice surfers to learn the basics with many suitable spots for beginners.


Surfing in Bali for beginners is a lot of fun! We make the most out of your learning with experienced instructors at Bali’s beginner spots in the Bukit Peninsula. Our surf lessons will teach you the correct standing technique and positioning on the board to ensure you enjoy maximum time on the waves. We also focus on paddling and being aware of your surroundings so you are safe in the water.

As your skills develop, we can offer ‘Progressive lessons’- changing to hard top surfboards that help you improve your turning. We recommend a minimum of 3 – 7 lessons to advance your skills to level 2.

SURF LESSONS FOR KIDS

Children can also surf during your holiday with our tailored kids’ beginner surf lessons.

Dawn Patrol Bali values that everyone should be able to experience the freedom of surfing. We therefore welcome children and their families from the age of 7 years to join with our dedicated and fun instructors.

Our 2 hour children’s surf lessons (Age 7 – 13) take place in the white water at high tide or a at a sandy beach break called Jimbaran Bay – one of Bali’s beginner spots. We focus on having lots of fun while gaining confidence in the water.

We provide friendly beginner surfboards and equipment in a safe and supportive teaching environment. Lesson outcomes include learning how to stand up, improving paddling & balance, and a basic understanding of the ocean environment.

  • "MY FIRST EXPERIENCE SURFING"

    My friends and I had a semi-private and private lesson with the boys. I really recommend Dawn Patrol Bali because you not only have super fun out there, you also learn a lot about surfing. These guys make your passion even stronger and encourage you to the next level! I felt super comfortable and safe with Akaa and Edo out there, the guys know exactly how to read the waves and taught us so many things. Thank you guys! I hope to see you soon again..

  • "WIPING OUT HAS NEVER BEEN SO FUN"

    I don’t have awesome ‘tupactatts’ or chiseled 8 pack abs like the champs at dawn patrol. In fact, clambering on the board for me was like watching an elephant try to navigate a tightrope - terrifying, and not in the least bit pretty. Dawn patrol to the rescue - lots of patience, lots of help in rough currents and big (to a landlubber like me at least) waves for a completely new first timer made it the best 2 hours of my short Bali trip! Pickup, instructions, equipment and drop off - it doesn't get better than that. These guys are pros. Highly recommend the private 1/1 lesson I did, especially for newbies. Yuan was very responsive through WhatsApp and email for the entire week leading up to the trip, which sets them apart from other surf schools in the area. Hope to be back soon..

  • "GREAT INTRODUCTION TO SURFING!"

    As an absolute beginner, Akaa was a great instructor! I had a semi-private lesson with one other person. Akaa was kind, upbeat, and very supportive. He walked us through the essentials while on the beach, and helped us set up for each wave once we were in the water. I was more anxious than I expected but Akaa helped me relax and encouraged me to keep at it. I exceeded my expectations and managed to ride a wave almost entirely through. I was only able to take one class while I was there but would have definitely taken more if I was there longer. I highly recommend Dawn Patrol to beginners and experienced surfers alike. They are professional, fun, and good company for a chill beach day.
