Waves and Surfguiding
You’ll rise from to the crow of roosters and sweet beckoning songs to prayer. The smell of incense lifts you from our comfortable beds. The warmth of the rising sun carries you to breakfast table where we’ll give you the morning surf report and cook you a nourishing breakfast to fuel you for the days adventure. We’ll then take you in our air conditioned van to wherever the waves are best. Our guided surf tours leave when you’re ready.
Bali has every kind of wave imaginable from barreling world-class-reef-breaks to playful sand-bottom-beaches. If you’re a beginner and want to learn the basics, we can assure a safe and comfortable environment with step by step instruction. If you are an intermediate or advanced surfer, we’ve scoured Bali’s nooks and crannies and know every spot and what conditions the breaks call for. Don’t want to surf in a crowd? We know a few waves off the beaten path if you’re up for it.
StormRider surf camp is near the playful and consistent breaks of Echo Beach and Old Mans with six other breaks nearby.
Depending on your desire and conditions, we can take you for a quick surf down the road or on day trips to the Bukit Peninsula to surf Uluwatu, Padang Padang, Dreamland Bingin, Balangan, Impossibles, Greenbowls, Seregan, and Airport Reefs. If the waves are small, we’d love to take you on a road trip up north to surf Balian, a river mouth A-frame that is fun for any skill level.
Our Surf Guides
“The StormRider Surf Camp Guides are some of the best I’ve come across in all my travels. They helped get me into the best waves possible for everyday of my stay and showed me the best food and nightlife in the area. I’ve been to Bali three times prior and owner, Arnd Vehling, and his staff showed me surf spots I had never heard of. Definitely staying here again.” – Jake Tellkamp, Editor Surfing Magazine
Our staff is comprised of quality surf coaches with decades of experience. Total beginners who stay at StormRider Surf Camp can expect to ride their first open face wave within five lessons.

Surfcamp and Resort Bali
We are situated amongst the picturesque Balinese rice fields of Canggu, Indonesia. In the last decade, Canggu has transformed into a hip destination with the coolest cafes and nightlife in Bali. Our resort, known by locals as Raja Ombak, is a short five minute scooter ride away from The Deus Temple and Pretty Poison, two establishments that Canggu has come to be known for.
StormRider Surf Camp was built with all travelers in mind. We have spacious antiques suites for a classy couple retreat, double rooms, as well a comfortable deluxe dorm for those traveling on a budget. We offer a quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle with all the amenities to make you feel at home.
The Surfcamp is close to about 8 Surfspots accommodating for all surflevels. The closest Surf-Spots are River-Mouth, The-Stairs, Sandbanks and Echo-Beach. Just 5 minutes away is well known Batu-Bolong and Oldmans. Another 5 minutes and you are at Berawa Beach with 4 Different Peaks. Just 15 minutes North is the famous Tanah-Lot temple with its surfspot in front of the cliff.
For guided surfing we prefer the Spots close the Surfcamp but we bring you to all Surf-Spots on Bali like Uluwatu, Dreamland and Belangan if the conditions are right.
Food and Restaurant
StormRider Surf Camp prides ourselves for making fresh and healthy food with select ingredients from local markets. Served to you breakfast, lunch, and dinner at a fair price, our menu ranges from traditional Asian delicacies to western comfort food you might be missing from home.
We know there’s nothing quite like an ice-cold-beer and a nourishing meal to end a great day of surfing. Our regular barbecues of fresh fish, caught that very morning, are perfect for making new friends and sharing travel stories.
If you are an early riser or want to go on one of our early-bird day trips, you can pre-order breakfast the night before and have it ready for your departure.
