People Say!

  • I had an amazing experience surfing in Bali and would definitely come back again for more. The private lesson with Edie really helped and made me enjoy the surf lesson to the maximum. I will never forget the feeling of catching my first green wave at Batu Bolong!!!!

  • I stayed with Ilham and Anna for a week in August 2015. I was a complete beginner at surfing. Ilham is a very patient surf teacher and had me catching waves on my first lesson. I had six lessons with him and he was always giving me useful tips to improve my surfing. The accommodation and food was great too. Best of all, Ilham and Anna were both so welcoming and friendly, inviting me out for meals and drinks with their friends. My stay with them was the highlight of my time in Bali. Totally recommended!!

  • I had a dream to visit Bali to practice yoga but I came across a more exciting experience! The reason for my new passion is the Surf's UP Camp!!! There I had amazing teacher. Ilham you rock!!! I was scared in the beginning but with Ilham, I surpassed my fear and my passion for surf began. I also have a special thanks for the stuff, with whom I became friend. I am so happy for this experience and I am sure I will come back to improve my surf skills and meet my friends again at the Surf's Up Surf & Stay

  • I went to Bali with some friends and always wanted to try out surfing but never did. Bali was the perfect place to learn so I said to myself no more excuses! I came across Surf's Up Surf School and can now say that it is one of the best choices I did. The guys Ilham and his second in command Edi as well as the rest of the team Rido etc were extremely helpful and very professional. They picked us from our villa in Canggu and we drove to the East Coast as the day was windy and Batu Bolong wasn't working. What I liked the most was the fact that we had a semi-private lesson only 2 people per surf instructor so that we could get the most out of our surfing class. Though we started with the intention of just taking one class for fun, we really got into it and ended up taking a whole week of surfing. I am definitely continuing with my surfing - it's official: I am hooked!

  • A month ago I traveled to Bali with friends ... An ideal destination for surf! I had a failed experience in the past with the sport and I was reluctant to try again in a foreign place. Thanks to Ilham I fell in love with surfing and from then on have been on an endless wave hunt! Ilham you are the best surf instructor!

  • What a great day we spent with Ilham! We're very grateful for his time and effort that he put into teaching us how to surf! We loved it! Our teacher was very patient and professional but also very funny! We had an amazing afternoon!!! Can't wait to come to Bali again and try more surfing!!!! Definitely recommend this school to all very beginners (as us).Ps. Thank you for recommending us the restaurant! We had there best food in Bali!!!!

Location Canggu Bali

Things to do in Canggu, Bali

The Neighbourhood

Canggu has a relaxed surfing vibe but is also only 30 minutes away from the bustling heart of Bali – Seminyak & Kuta. It has cool, laid back cafés, restaurants, shops and two or three bars. It’s the perfect place to relax but also to be close to the action.

Getting Around

The best way to get around Canggu – and Bali in general – is by motorbike. You can rent a motorbike for as little as €3 a day or US$3.5 a day. Car rental is also cheap, at only €15/20 a day or US$17/23 a day. If you don’t want to rent your own bike or car, you can simply rent a car with a driver for around €40 a day or US$45 a day.

Food & Drinks

For lunch and dinner, there are plenty of choices. You can either check out the local warungs (taverns) in Jalan Batu Bolong (Canggu’s main street), such as handily positioned surfer’s favourite Bumi, or try the warungs on Batu Bolong beach (Canggu’s main beach), all of which serve great local buffet style food at an average cost of €2 or US$2.5.

If you fancy something more international, there is also plenty of choice – we like Betelnut Café, which serves organic, local and international food. Another idea is to try the delicious fresh fish BBQ at Batu Bolong or Echo Beach – literally next to the waves. The price of an international meal or BBQ is around €3-5 or US$3.5-5.5.

A sunset Bintang (Bali’s local beer) or coconut by the beach is a must. And if you want a bit of night life, there is always Deus, which has live music every Sunday, the after party at Echo Beach Sand Bar, also on Sundays, or Old Man’s Friday live music night.

If you want more action, the shopping and restaurant paradise of Seminyak and Kuta’s crazy night life are only a short ride away by bike or car.
