SURFING

We will choose the most suitable spots together, always according to the current conditions. Each lesson will last 2-3 hours. Kazuma will coach you not only during the lesson itself, but will also follow up on the videocoaching analysis.

VIDEOCOACHING

Videocoaching is a very effective method of teaching surfing. Difficult explanation of surfers mistakes can be very easily tracked in slow-motion shots, in which you instantly understand what you should improve. Filming will be captured during four sessions from a drone or regular camera by a professional cameraman, following evening will be detailed analysis of the footage with Kazuma.

SURFING WORKOUTS

Most of us were not as lucky enough to be born by the ocean or conditions are not as epic every day, surfing is a big challenge. This is why supporting so-called dry preparation is very important. Without the right training and reinforcement, you will not reach full potential and progress in surfing.

We will focus on:

  • proper stretching, mobility and body flexibility

  • functional fitness training for the development muscle parts important for advanced surfing

  • exercises for releasing critical parts important to attitude and takeoff

  • self-massage techniques

  • theoretical basics + practical exercises aimed at teaching surf techniques

  • limited momentum especially in hips part

  • Specific training focused functionally using own weight

SURFSKATE TRAININGS

Surfskate is one of the most important tools for surfing and improving your technique, which you can practice anywhere and anytime. At these trainings we will: 

  • we will learn how to fine-tune surfing and maneuvering techniques

  • we will improve basic surf techniques – takeoff, bottom turn, carve, trimming, pumping, cutback

  • in general we will improve the coordination of the upper and lower half of the body

  • with surfskate we also strengthen our muscles – legs, core, back

PHOTO SHOOTING FROM THE WATER

For one of the lessons, we’ll take the professional water photographer with us to the waves to bring your unique moments to life. The photos will be edited and you will get them as a reminder of these moments.

PRESENTATION ABOUT SURFING

We will project surfing lecture that explains everything about wave formation, surfing history, how surfboards are made and what their kinds are. Than you will learn what is the tide, what kind of wind is the best for surfing, where is possible to surf anywhere in the world and learn how to read in surf forecasts. And of course, we will theoretically guide you through all the spots on Bali.

SCREENING OF SURF MOVIES AND VIDEOS

One evening, we will create a theatre above our pool to watch not just one of surf movies to try to not only motivate you for the next waves, but also get to know each other better and enjoy good evening in the comfort of our bean bags with popcorn and some chilled drinks.

BBQ

No “summer vacation” can be done without having a barbecue with friends. This is a traditional and indispensable social event for every one of our camps that you will not miss! We will give you a taste of fresh fish and seafood from the local market, complemented by our own organic vegetables or organic vegetables from local farmers.

STRETCHING

Proper stretching before and after surfing is an extremely important part that should not be forgotten. We will stretch together as efficiently as possible every day and teach you how.

SLACKLINE

Slackline is balancing, walking and jumping on a strap fastened between two points, such as trees. This supportive activity is not only fun, but it is also very beneficial for the stability and overall strengthening of the body, which is needed for surfing. So we’ll attached the slackline in our local park or our yoga shala and try to teach you the basics of this balancing.

PING-PONG CONTEST

Just between us we give it a ping-pong tournament and the winner gets from everybody a beer, huh?

SKATE SESSION

One afternoon, if the surf conditions are not the best, we will go to the nearby „hipster“ city called Canggu, where we will not go only for a great meal, but also visit a local skatepark / pumptrack.

Jakub Michna

Jakub is our benjamin, but thanks to his tenacity, determination, diligence and strong will, he is an exceptional and absolutely indispensable member of our team. His first experience with surfing was in California more than seven years ago, but after almost four years he realized that surfing was really what he wanted to devote most of all, so he began to subdue his dream to his whole life. While traveling through various surfing destinations, he met a lot of surf coaches who were not only a great motivation for him, but also an inspiration to practice so-called “dry preparation”. Jakub became a licensed surf instructor of ASI (www.academyofsurfing.com) in 2016 and also a rider of the World Surfskate Team. He has also been actively involved in yoga, calisthenics, handstanding, movement and functional strengthening for several years. In Prague, he regularly runs special surfing trainings and Jakub is also the editor of the surf magazine Freeride.cz – Water and the proud founder of the SURFR project.

Bali, known as the island of gods, offers more than you can imagine. It is one of the most diverse islands in Indonesia. Beautiful beaches, rich underwater world, unique fascinating culture, countless breathtaking Hindu temples, panoramic center of the island with majestic volcano, breathtaking rice fields, welcoming residents and of course perfect surfing conditions all year around make Bali one of the most visited destinations in the world.

ACCOMODATION

 We live in Bali full time and run Bali Bio Villas Resort. It is a unique project in which we have combined everything we love: a healthy lifestyle, surfing, yoga and organic vegetable and fruit growing. Bali Bio Villas Resort is built in the Greek style of Santorini with elements of local Balinese architecture. The resort features a swimming pool, a place to relax or practice yoga – Yoga Shala and an organic garden which in recent time has been partly transformed into a new concept of living – bamboo gazebos – which provides all the comforts and even closer connection with the nature.

FOOD

Balinese cuisine is one of the tastiest in the world. Around Bali Bio Villas you can find many local restaurants called Warung, where you can enjoy typical rice with vegetables (or meat) – Nasi Goreng or Nasi Campur, delicious fish Mahi-Mahi or a tasty local dish called Gado-Gado with peanut sauce. Our goal is to direct you to healthy and tasty meals and give you practical advice on how you can replace some unhealthy food with something that is just as tasty or even tastier and much healthier! Remember that „you are what you eat“ and „you feel what you eat.“
