Why Us

Best Surfing in Bali

There is no taming of the sea. There are no rules to follow. It's just you and the waves. So let go and let it flow.

What’s my WHY?  My kids.  They inspire me.  They motivate me.  They are my reason.

Our Story

Aloha Bali Surf was conceptualised back in 2010 by Tommy, the Founder and Owner, whilst running Kids' Camps and After-School Activity Programs on the Island. It was a business that grew quickly and organically, and through word of mouth and recommendations, he soon found himself with a full client list and busting with new ideas. With a laid-back Californian vibe and Hawaiian Island Spirit, Aloha Bali Surf was born, catering to locals as well as Bali’s international visitors; As one guest once said: “created to bring the Aloha to the Indonesian islands” Today, Aloha Bali Surf has grown to include: The Surf Station One-Stop Shop The Aloha Bali Beach Shacks The Surf Charter Boats in The Mentawais and Nusa Tengara The Kids' Surf Camps Private and Group Surf Sessions Surf Guiding and Coaching Board Rentals, Repairs & Custom-Made Quivers and finally, the Retreats. From beginners to advanced surfers, whatever it may be, Aloha Bali Surf's services cover all your surfing needs, so: COME GET SOME! Aloha Bali Surf operates with Safety and Professionalism at all times, complying with International Surf School legislation by providing all instructors with Surf Rescue training. In accordance with The Aloha Spirit Law, regular donations are made to various local villages, orphanages, and other positive community programs.
