Hi, I am Stina from Finland, I am going to spend my next 5 months in Bali and I was lucky enough to surf & relax some days at Kima. I want to tell you about my day at Kima Canggu.
So first of all, the location of the camp is great, near to Batu Bolong beach and in walking distance, you can find huge mix of vegan, vegetarian restaurants, smoothie bars, fancy modern Cafes with trendy dishes such as raw food balls, eggs & avocado breakfast and much more. All the places to BE right now in Bali!
Within that special environment you find our Kima Surf Camp Canggu. The camp is located on a quiet yard with rooms being located on two levels. In the middle of the camp, a huge pool is settled between tropical plants. Around the pool the comfortable chilling area and sunbeds are very inviting to relax. This soundslike a good plan.
Why people may come here, is because of the surf sessions. There are sessions in the morning and in the afternoon and you can choose your own level with Kima’s star system: 1-star label the very easy basic sessions. With 5 stars you are an absolute expert in the water. The camp also offers video analysis 3 times a week where you can watch yourself surfing from a big screen. In that way, you can see what you need to focus on more…
How cool is it that to watch yourself surfing?
Any how I had decided to join a 2-star surf session in the afternoon. First when I arrived I got help from a guide to choose a suitable board for me. Ten minutes before the session was starting all the guests which had signed up for this session met in front of the camp and we walked together to the beach.
When I saw the waves, I was guessing it was may be a mistake to join the 2-stars session, but let’s give it a try!(since I have just surf a few times before). We did a little bit of warm up and the guides were telling us about the spot, then we went into the water. They were also giving me advice in the water.It was good and I felt safe. After I tried a while I noticed that I have to do a few more one-star sessions before this.
I went back to the camp and started to feel a bit hungry. The restaurant has a big table where all the guests can sit together and have breakfast, snacks and dinner. I think it’s great! Yeah and the menu has a lot of good options to choose between but today I decided to take a veggie burger and a refreshing lime juice.
After the lunch, it is an excellent time to relax a bit in the sun at the roof terrace. And tomorrow morning I will join the one star surf session, with better luck!
The day has been amazing the atmosphere at the camp is so chill and you can see that all of the people are happy, I can warmly recommend this for all levels of surfers!
See you at Kima Canggu!
