How to prepare for a surf trip in Bali – Tips and trix

To us, surfing in Bali is one of the most enjoyable things in life, and the fact that it is actually a great exercise is just one of the benefits of surfing. You don’t have to do any preparation before you come and visit us in Bali, but if you you are really stoked and can’t wait to get started, there is a few simple things to do to help get the most out of your stay with us.


You can have a lot of fun just surfing close to shore and playing around in the waist deep water, but once you start surfing a bit further out, a good swimmer will have a head start. Get down to your local swimming pool a couple of times a week to get your freestyle swimming going, the payoff will be huge. It can be difficult to get started but hang in there and you will go from being able to go one length to 15-20 lengths in a month or so. To improve your technique we recommend watching a few youtube videos, our personal favorite is Alexander Popov who shows how important the rhythm and control is when swimming.

Watch the video


Surfing will make you feel like a kid again, and what better way to get into that feeling by spending some time on a skateboard. It’s really about improving your balance but it is also a great tool to improve your stands (how you stand on your surfboard). So just enjoy the feeling, cruise around and remember to stay relaxed, drop the back knee, and open your shoulders. Craig Anderson is one of the most stylish surfers around, and has some great stands to show off:

Flexibility & core strenght

Flexibility can often be limiting to a lot of people as you need to be pretty flexible to get the most from your surfing. Yoga is a great way to improve your flexibility while also strengthening your core muscles, which will improve your balance greatly. So give it a try, and if you don’t have the prssibility to attend a class, give youtube a try!

Once you’re here with us you also have the option to book a few lessons with our yoga teacher at the camp to make sure you’re doing it right and help you get a routine that will help for your next surf trip! Check out our additional yoga package

It is also a good idea to get your strength up, especially in those paddle muscles, legs, and torso. If you need some inspiration for your next gym session we have compiled a Pinterest board with some of our favorite exercises and training tips.

Good luck with your training!


Do you have any set days for surf courses or stays in general?

No, We at Surflodge Limasan aim for flexibility, therefore you can arrive any date or any day as long we have a room or a bed for you available at the lodge. Our courses start every day – all year round!

Is it ok to join Surflodge Limasan  if I am traveling alone in Bali?

We think that, as a single taveller, the best choice is to join a surf & yoga retreat as Surflodge Limasan as you will meet new friends with the same interests. Our shared rooms are the perfect choice when traveling alone. We assure you that you will leave with new friends and memories!

I don’t drive a scooter, how do I get around?

Balis traffic can be pretty overwhelming and we totally understand if you don’t feel ready or safe driving your own scooter. We provide pickup and dropoff when you are attending a surf course and if you want to go somewhere else sometimes, there are cheap taxi services (such as Uber). If you just want to check out the neighborhood, we have a bicycle at the lodge which you are free to use. We also have our own mini-bus which we use when we go for roadtrips and excursions. 

Do I need any vaccinations when traveling to Bali?

We recommend you to talk to your local vaccination clinic before you travel to Bali or any other countries around in Southeast Asia as they are up to date with the latest information.

Do I need a visa to enter Indonesia?

Yes, all travelers from other countries need a Visa. There are several different visa types, depending on how long you are planning to stay and from which country you are from. We recommend you to contact the Indonesian Embassy before and apply for the visa best suited for you.

Do you serve Vegetarian & Vegan food at Surflodge Limasan

Yes, we have a good vegan and vegetarian menu at Surflodge Limasan. Just let us know when you contact us and we will let our chefs know. 

Why are you not located directly on the beach?

We choose an area where we are close to everything instead, for example when we, during the wet season, go surfing on the east coast mostly, we can choose of a range of different waves instead of surfing one area year round. Our area is very strategic in that point of view and we appreciate being close to the local community instead if the dense tourist areas, who are just a short ride away.

Are all meals included in the price?

We include all breakfasts and dinners, even those dinners we eat at our favorite restaurants, which we do 3-4 times a week. You can choose one main dish and a drink, yes you can choose to have a beer as well ;)
