What to expect

The Surf Play Love Surf Retreat gives you a wonderful opportunity to explore Bali and immerse yourself (literally) in its surf culture.  You’ll have the opportunity to meet new friends, get professional surf lessons, and fully enjoy one of the world’s top tropical destinations.  Just steps from one of Canggu’s best surf breaks, and around the corner from the town’s main drag, your guesthouse boasts an unbeatable location.  

After sign up, we’ll provide you with personalized recommendations on how to get the most out of your Bali trip.  We’ll fill you in on the best destinations, the most delicious restaurants, the best surf spots, the most relaxing spas for your post-surf massage, and the best places to catch a breathtaking sunset beer with your friends.   

Prior to departure, we’ll host a video conference call with all the guests to answer any last minute questions and give you an opportunity to get introduced to your new friends.  

You’ll get daily surf lessons, but apart from that, you’ll have the opportunity to shape your itinerary as you see fit.  To give you some inspiration, however, we’ll provide you with a sample itinerary that includes our personal favorite destinations and activities.

About Bali

Bali is one of the most popular surf destinations in the world. Millions of years of volcanic activity have created intricate reef formations and perfectly shaped waves, making this island a true natural wonder. Located between the Bali Sea and the Indian Ocean, the “Island of the Gods” has warm water, warm climate, white sand beaches in the south, black sand beaches in the west and north, and boundless scenic beauty. As a surfer, Bali should be at the top of your list of travel destinations.

Our Home Canggu

Canggu is one of the trendiest towns in Bali. The neighborhood of Canggu offers beach bars, nightclubs, delicious restaurants, unique fashion boutiques, and first-class spas and massage parlours. It is the perfect place to surf, relax, and meet like-minded people.

Surf Play Love Surf Retreat is located in the center of Canggu, just 5 minutes walk from the Old Man’s Surf break, and just a few more minutes from the reef and beach breaks of Echo Beach and Perenenan.  There are breaks suitable for every level, from beginning, to intermediate, to advanced.

Our Accommodations

We put particular emphasis on providing the authentic Bali experience to guarantee you a holiday you’ll remember for a lifetime. The guesthouse and its 6 private rooms are beautifully designed and decorated in Balinese and surf themes.  The guesthouse is surrounded by a lush garden, and each room has a porch area where you can enjoy a cold one after a surf session, or catch an amazing sunset. Each of the rooms are meticulously cleaned, offer comfortable beds for a great night’s rest.

The guesthouse is within a short walk of some of the best and most famous restaurants and cafes in Canggu. Yoga studios and massage parlors are also just around the corner.  You’ll also have the opportunity to rent motorbikes if you decide to go on a spontaneous shopping trip to Seminyak, Kuta, Ubud, Uluwatu, or anywhere else on the island.

Our guesthouse belongs to a local surf family who lives in a house just next door! Every generation of the family surfs and Ayok, the oldest son, also happens to be your head surf coach! Through the interaction with the local family, you will get a real sense of the local culture and the exceptionally friendly and accommodating Balinese mentality.

Surf Lessons

Our surf lessons are provided by English speaking, professional, local surf guides.  

Your safety is of the utmost importance, and promoting your skill level as a surfer is our main objective.   For this reason, and unlike most surf retrets in Bali, we have a maximum group size of 2 students per surf coach.  You’ll get unparalleled attention and instruction at each surf lesson.

Or head surf coach, Ayok, is one of the best surfers in Bali, with an exceptional and unique retro style, and is sponsored by Deus Ex Machina. He makes sure that surfers of all levels, from beginners to intermediates, to advanced, can improve their skills.

The surf coaches will take students to the best breaks dependent on student level and surf conditions.



The Surf Play Love Surf Retreats are designed to help you meet new people and build community. The retreat is limited to 6 guests, offering an optimal group dynamic for exploring the island and finding adventure. You’ll live and surf together, hang out, and maybe enjoy the spectacular sunset with a cool after-surf beer as you enjoy the reggae band directly on Canggu beach.   The smaller groups provide a more personal experience.  You can shape your holiday according to your own interests, you’ll always feel part of the group, and you’ll build close bonds quickly.  

During the pre-departure video conference call, you’ll get introduced to all the other guests in the retreat, so you can start your holiday on a great note. You will also get access to the private Surf Play Love Facebook group so that your new friends can become lifetime friends and surf buddies.
