Waves on our doorstep. Surf as much as your body will allow!
The surf here is the real reason why we have chosen Lombok for this Pop-Up, and is the perfect location to run a Soul & Surf retreat.
For starters… The waves break right out front of where we will be staying. You’ll be able to see the surf from the villas. We will have certain times each day that we’ll be offering lessons but you’ll also be able to grab a board at any time of the day to go for a quick splash. So if the peak is empty, the wind is right and you have the energy we’ll just go!
The waves are consistent all year round, more so from April through November, with longer period swells arriving from the southern ocean. Ekas bay is suitable for all surfers.
There is a sand bar on the inside of the bay, perfect for learning to surf in tropical waters, and the ideal location for us to start off with our level 1 surfer.
Outside Ekas can be a long, hollow wall that breaks on the outer walls of the cliff face of the bay. This is for the more experienced surfer as the wave can be powerful and not so forgiving.
Inside Ekas is much more fun and suitable for most levels of surfer as the wave breaks far inside the bay, offering left-hand walls and slightly more powerful rights. Inside Ekas is suitable for both longboarders and shortboarders, and it is here that we’ll be running our level 2 & 3 surf lessons.
As with our retreats in Sri Lanka and India we’ll be offering lessons to all levels of surfer. The level 1 surfer that is looking to catch their first waves, the level 2 surfer that is looking to explore unbroken waves for the first time, or the level three surfer that is looking to improve on their basic manoeuvres and how to handle themselves in more challenging waves. We’ll be offering you 5 surf lessons through out the week with a rest day to help you recuperate.
We’ll offer the lessons in the mornings and have ‘free surf sessions’ together to practice what we’ve learnt. We’re really excited to be staying as close to the surf as is possible without getting wet. This means that when we’re not eating, relaxing or getting our bend on we can be in the surf.
We will have use of all water sports equipment but it will be limited. Please drop us an email <click to show address> if you have specific needs with surf boards and we’ll see what we can do. It could always be worthwhile picking yourself up a ‘shred stick’ from Bali. Adam is always happy to talk board design. Drop him an email if you’re thinking of having a board shaped or want to pick something up prior to your trip.
