Uluwatu is one of the best surfing destinations in the world, catering for all abilities from total novice to carving expert. As a result of the island’s consistent and forgiving waves, several surf schools have set up shop within Bali’s southern tip.

During your stay in Uluwatu, you’ll realise that surf runs through the veins of this beach-loving region. Here are four of the best schools to get you on board.

This establishment is a dedicated surf and yoga resort, perfectly located on the Bukit Peninsular. The school takes guests out every day, snapping pictures during each session to update holidaymakers on their progress.
