LOCATION AND SURF CONDITIONS
Our Surf Camp Hotel “The Green Room Canggu” is about 10 km north of the heaving tourist stronghold, Kuta, almost right at the 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 Echo Beach Canggu, and Perenenan.

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 and mountain bikes free of charge – just check with us.
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 art. 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.
Kima Surf 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.
Food & drink
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.
Our delicious breakfast options – plus an upgrade to deluxe breakfast – are available from 7 am to 12 pm at the surf hotel in Canggu. Free tea and coffee are available every day until 6 pm. Our standard breakfast with a choice of a fresh fruit juices, a starter such as a fruit salad or pancakes, and a main course like eggs, fried rice or fried noodles, is included in the camp price.
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 Seminyak surf camp also offers a variety of Indonesian dishes.
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.

SURF COURSE DETAILS
For beginners the many semi-beach breaks on our doorstep are ideal for riding your first green wave and improving your take-off.
Total beginners we recommend booking our 3-day learn-to-surf package.
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.
Of course it is also the advanced surfers that really get their money’s worth on Bali.
The best waves all around 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.
Surf guiding at the surf camp Canggu
Kima Surf Camps advantage is that surf guiding is included twice a day, seven days a week. We organize up to sixteen trips daily for all surf levels to various breaks around Bali. You can take part in two guided sessions per day.
The surf spots we head to each day will vary based upon the elements and conditions mother nature has provided us as well as our experience of over 25 years Surf Guiding in Bali. The elements to consider are tide, swell size and wind direction. These elements are the components of what will make a surf spot ‘surf-able’ and being able to identify all these elements ensures the best possible session for Kima surfers.
Our surf guides are here to assist you in taking the best sessions for your current ability and helping ensuring that together we build your core surfing skills first and foremost. Surfers surf because it is fun and we love it. We don’t care what level you surf, we just want to be in the water having fun and catching waves. Your safety is paramount to Kima so always listen to your surf guides instructions and advice.
How our surf sessions work
Kima Surfs custom built Six Star Session Planner was built and refined over 25 years of Surf Coaching and Surf Guiding experience in Bali and Indonesia. It’s very important when you arrive to be honest and upfront about your prior surf experience when choosing your board and level of your first session.
It’s always best if you have had 6 months or more away from the ocean to re-start in the lower star levels to find your groove again. We guarantee you will make faster progress with this method and it will give us a better opportunity to work with you on perfecting the techniques that are essential to mastering the waves.
Always listen attentively to your Surf Guides in the water they are responsible for you and your safety. Our Surf Guides will endeavour to get you into the best waves possible every day and also have the most fun possible.
We offer video analysis 6 days per week with the exception being Friday which is our weekly camp BBQ. Each day we have two sessions with a videographer and at 7pm we give an analysis of the session. Saturday night video analysis is from Friday surf sessions and Sunday night is from Saturday surf sessions. Watching yourself on film is the best form of self-improvement so if you want to be filmed, sign up for surf sessions marked with CAM on session planner.
Surf Theory & Pool Sessions
Surf Theory and Pool Sessions are scheduled Monday through Saturday. Each alternating day we have a class which educates you about surf equipment, water safety, ocean knowledge and most important surf etiquette. Our pool sessions will focus on finding sweet spot paddling, pop-ups, turtle rolls and duck diving. This is a great opportunity to continually grow your core surf skills and a must attend.
Board Rental 10 EUR/day
Don´t worry about bringing your own board, we have it covered. We have shortboards (6'0'' - 7'0''), funshapes and mini-malibus (7'0'' - 7'8'') available for every level and all conditions. Leashes and lycras are included in the rental. Any repairs or loss of equipment need to be paid for.
Board Insurance 50 EUR up to 3 weeks or 10 EUR/day
Be on the safe side and "insure" your rental board. We will carry the costs for any repairs over a period of 1 – 3 weeks, whether it’s a tiny dent or a major break.
