Because after a day at KIMA I’m always completely surfed out and happy. Additionally you can be sure to surf as much as possible and never miss a good surf in a variety of spots around the island.
Our Surf Camps are located close to the beach. From our Canggu camp the beach is a 2 minute walk and from our Seminyak camp the beach is just a 5 minute walk. With our Kima Seminyak Villa Deluxe, Green Bowl and Padang Surf Camp the beach can be reached within a 5 minute drive.
We have all kind of different sizes and surfboard shapes for every level. It doesn’t matter if you are a Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced or Pro Surfer, we have the right board for you!
Our surfboards are all made of high-quality epoxy or polyester resin. This means the best possible performance on the water, but if they’re not handled properly, they’re easily damaged.
Repairs have to be paid for by the user. For a small amount fee, you can insure your hired board. In the possible event that you lose the board or parts of it, you will still have to take over the costs despite the insurance.
Surf lessons are professional lessons done by a certified surf school. Kima recommends surf lessons to beginners who haven’t surfed before in order to get some first instructions, a basic knowledge about the water and the waves and first training with proper security gear such as helmets and soft top surfboards in order to reduce injuries and cuts. We offer surf lessons in partnership with the Rip Curl School of Surf for all our beginners. Those lessons need to be booked separately and are not included in our room/surf-guiding packages.
Surf guiding means that our professional surf guides will take you to surf spots that match your ability, give you a detailed spot introduction and be in the water with you to support you in getting as many waves as possible. Our surf guides will provide you with feedback and give you advises in how to improve your surfing skills. A beginner who is booked into a Learn-to Surf program of 3 days, could already join from the day one the afternoon surf guided sessions of Kima, as the surf school lessons are provided in the morning.
Please, be informed that Kima uses, in all surf guided trips, hard boards in different sizes (and not the soft boards like the surf school does).
The endless surf spots in Bali have the right wave for all levels. Kuta’s mile-long beach and some very soft reef breaks are ideal for beginners. If the swell is too big at the beach, our surf guides always know the one or other spots with nice little breaks for our beginners. In Padang Surf Camp and Green Bowl SurfResort,you should prepare yourself for longer driving times if you want to surf at beginner friendly spots.
The water temperature in Bali is between 26°C (July/August) and 30°C (December/January).
