In 1989 it was “Pencak Silat”, a type of martial arts, 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.
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.
And we all have one commitment: working hard to make the idea of the Bali Surf Camp an unforgettable experience for you.
No matter how long your stay with us lasts, Kima provides you a maximum of surf-time without spending time looking up surf spots and finding them or checking the best tides or swells for it.
What we want to do is make sure you have an absolutely fantastic surfing holiday, but we can’t do everything for you. Bali is a beautiful island, and beside its perfect waves, there is an enormous wealth in culture, nature and mysticism – you simply have to experience and explore all this for yourself.
Keep your eyes open and always be willing for new experience and you’ll soon see that Bali really is a paradise and you’ll understand why we’ve come to call it home.
