What makes us special
"A truly unique and potentially life changing experience"
To provide and share a fun, unique and progressive two week journey with fellow travellers who are serious about exploring, performing and perfecting the basics or take their advanced surfing to the next level.
Founded in 2007 we are still seriously passionate about surf learning in perfect waves, our highly qualified team will help and support you through a truly unique and potentially life changing experience.
The camp accommodates just sixteen level 1-2 guests and eight level 3-4 guests in our mixed dorm rooms, double rooms and private houses. You can also book a separate private villa next door at Bruces Hideout (https://bruceshideoutlombok.com).
With prime location on the beach and 5-10 minutes to several world class surf breaks you cant get a better setup for your surfing adventure. The full two week course is 990€ (all included) and our flexible 3-day course is only 250€.
Whether you are looking to improve your surfing or are simply a beginner, the wonderful waves around our bay suit all competence levels.
Surfing conditions are good all year round but lighter winds normally make Sep-Dec and Feb-May the best months of the year.
Lombok (just east of Bali) has its own international airport located only 30minutes away from the camp.
"A truly unique and potentially life changing experience"
Our surf holidays are open to surfers of all abilities with easy waves ideal for beginners, and powerful breaks to challenge seasoned surfers. Our expert coaching team is experienced in coaching all levels, including first-time surfers. The price includes all meals (one restaurant visit excluded), accommodation, equipment, courses, yoga sessions, boat transport and free use of all our toys. With a "deliberate practice" approach to surf learning we offer you a unique opportunity to join a two week experience with detailed step by step guidance, individual smart goals and immediate informative feedback. Surfing is THE top priority but we also go on small adventures by car or boat to explore new places together. This could be things like organic farm visits, short mountain treks, waterfall swimming, fishing, snorkeling, cliff jumping or visiting local markets. We also play a very prestigious game of football with the local team every camp, so bring good shoes. Although there are plenty of activities offered there is always the option to just relax in the tree house with a book, rip the skate bowl, watch documentaries or simply engage in interesting conversations. Equipment All the necessary equipment is included in your stay, just bring (see attachment) and we provide the rest. With over 40 surfboards to choose from we will help you find a board that is suitable for you. We also run a shaping bay where you can take part in designing a surfboard, custom made just for you. WHICH COURSE IS FOR ME? Being able to communicate your current skill and experience to us before you arrive at SCL allows us to plan your week of coaching to maximise your progress. “Intermediate” can mean anything from a few days, to a few decades of surfing, so instead we use the level 1-4 system. Level 1 - I can surf the internet - I am a complete beginner/novice and enjoy knee-waist high waves Level 2 - I am a holiday surfer/weekend warrior - I can stand up and catch the majority of waves I paddle for - I can make angled take off and trimming down the line I am confident in waist high waves Level 3 - I can consistently catch head high waves without assistance - I have started to learn manoeuvres such as cut backs and floaters level 4 - I am comfortable in over head surf and can perform critical manoeuvres in the powerful part of the wave - I am on my search for getting barrelled SOJULUHS (LEVELS 1-2) You will be guided into the unbroken waves, have constant in water coaching and weekly photo analysis as well as land based training. Even if you are not new to surfing we invite you to this possible life changing experience. Guided by our fully qualified team of lifeguard trained surf instructors you will (in 2 weeks!) learn more than most surfers would in a year without coaching. Check our website to read more...... SESSIONS (LEVEL 3-4) Most of the coaching is done through frequent photo analysis and land based theory, we establish which areas of your surfing that are restricting you from achieving your goals. 'Sessions' is for intermediate to experienced surfers. This course is adapted to you as an individual surfer and involves a great deal of photo analysis. Sessions uses all types of transport available to get to the best surf breaks throughout south Lombok...from small indonesian sampans, cars, motor-bikes, your own hiking feet to our 50ft charter boat. Check our website to read more... YOGA Most people experience that surfing can be quite hard on the body, especially if you are a beginner. From experience we can see that yoga is a very effective complement to surfing as it helps both body and mind to relax and connect while giving your muscles a well needed stretch after a days of surfing. We include a variety of different yoga styles which is suitable for everyone and you don’t need any prior experience.
In addition to the courses listed on our website we also run a new flexible 3-day course, the price is 250€ and includes one meal a day at our skate cafe.
In 2009 the owners of Surfcamp Lombok founded Pelita Foundation. You can read all about the Foundation’s programs at www.pelitafoundationlombok.org, (and please ‘like’ our Facebook page too!) Most of the Foundation’s programs are run from the Surfcamp, so you will meet the kids and volunteers when you get here! Guests often ask us how they can contribute to the Foundation’s programs and to the community, so we have provided a list of things below.
HELPFUL THINGS YOU CAN BRING WITH YOU
§ If you own a good quality camera and are interested in doing some photography or filming while you’re here, please bring it with you! We regularly need up-to-date images and footage of our programs in action for use in social media.
§ An English picture book, with just one or two sentences per page.
§ A piece of clothing to sell in our fundraising store. Second-hand tshirts, shorts and surf brand clothing are best.
§ Cash to purchase a tshirt or other merchandise, or to make a donation.
§ You can leave any unused medical supplies with us. Locals often come to us if they require medical attention. Wound dressings and children’s paracetamol are particularly useful.
§ If you have any digital devices you no longer need – used iPad’s and notebooks/laptops with chargers are very, very valuable for our Digital Literacy classes.
IF YOU’D LIKE TO BE MORE INVOLVED
§ Support us by collecting donations from friends and family before you arrive! Pelita Foundation depends solely on donations to run its programs, so all contributions are very much appreciated.
§ Volunteer from home by holding a fundraising event! A little bit of your time and enthusiasm can go a very long way in helping our local community. Email us for more information!
§ If you have a particular interest or talent (eg. music, sport, yoga, drama, etc), you can hold a class or workshop for the kids while you’re here. We can help you plan the activity and provide a translator : )
