First, answering the question “how long does it take to learn to surf?” involves determining what “learn to surf” means to you. There are different skill levels in surfing. For example, one person might consider themselves are having “learned to surf” if they are able to catch a wave in the white water and stand up for a few seconds.
The idea came to fruition when three Swedish gentlemen met on a boat trip, from Bali to Thailand and encountered a variety of problems along the way. Eventually, half the crew left the boat, and ultimately they realized that each person who remained brought their own special set of skills to the table. As the tradition phinisi sailboat almost sank, they all displaying camaraderie and real grit, ultimately leading them to become business partners.
The main purpose of the trip was repositioning a boat, but along the way they stopped over at some of the world’s finest surf spots – a trip of a lifetime. The discussion of learning to surf eventually came about and the plan was then set in stone, “It’s time to teach the world how to surf, in a professional way with regard to safety and knowledge about the art of surfing,” and thus the idea of the surf camp was born.

The Camp started in 2006 and has been teaching surfing ever since. Fast forward 12 years and I come into the picture, a young, hungry boy looking to chase my dream of teaching surfing in the world’s best waves and my journey with the camp starts. Why mention me in this story? Well everything you will read about the camp is more or less from my perspective, I hope I do a good job of describing how life here really is.
