SURFING IN BALI FOR BEGINNERS

Dawn Patrol Bali – beginner surf lessons are the perfect way to try surfing for the first time, or progress your skills with progressive surf lessons – starting from any level.

Learn surfing in Bali’s beginner surf spots with experienced surf instructors who will teach you the correct standing technique and positioning on the surf board, as well as ensure you are safe in the water and aware of your surroundings.

We make sure you enjoy maximum time on the waves on your first Bali surfing lessons – focused around paddling and how to stand up to make the most of your lessons.

  • "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.
