After working for western operators Ripcurl School of Surf & Kima Surf Camp, Gede wanted to offer something different, to share & teach his passion in a unique way. With help & encouragement from his English wife Henney, we set up Santai Surf in 2012. We wanted guests to feel like family & not a number. A surf school where groups are a maximum of 3 guests with one instructor, not 8. A business that offers professional, consistent & efficient service.
Without the fancy brand endorsements or a stylishly furnished office, we focus on the surfing so we can be 50% cheaper than other western branded competitors with the same qualifications, lucky for you! Our small team of dedicated, fun instructors delivers a more personable & safe teaching experience, so please book in advance or come see us as we have limited spaces in each lesson.
We believe that your surf experience should be unforgettable & learning from the best, safest trained instructors are important, so we are internationally accredited & supported by the Academy of Surfing Instructors. We update yearly our surf rescue, lifesaving & first aid skills because we never stop learning.
