Our Coaching

How are we different?

Our coaches

Our experienced surf coaches are not just great surfers, they are great teachers. They are attentive to the different needs of each guest, great communicators and have a natural ability to understand the ocean, conditions and surf techniques.

We are able to cater for all levels of surfers but have a strong focus on intermediates too advanced.


We guarantee a maximum of 3 students to 1 coach. That allows you to get to know our coaches and for them to get to know you, providing a personalised coaching plan that develops consistently throughout your sessions with us.

Our head coach will give you specific skills to learn each lesson and a clear understanding of why you’re learning those skills.


In and out of the water

Being in the ocean is a great way to improve your surfing ability but we also need to focus on our fitness and flexibility.

On our surf trips, we incorporate daily surf fitness and yoga.

Barrel Sessions


Jiwa Surf are definitely the best surf coachs on the island. Monot always takes into consideration your skills, chooses the surfspot for you carefully, and he can also help with overcoming your mental fears if you have any, he pushes your limits slowly. I improved so much!

Their whole team is very well organised, and provide an amazing service! Highly recommend them!

Jiwa surf lessons are definitely the best in Bali! I have improved so much. Monot and his instructors go above and beyond to help you improve your surf! They know exactly where to take you for your level, and give a very descriptive video analysis after every lesson.

I would highly recommend Jiwa Surf for surf lessons in Bali!

Monot is by far the best surf coach I know. He’s not only an extremely talented surfer, but also highly professional and well organized. He puts his heart and soul into the sessions and takes the time to check the photos and videos, analyze what you did, and gives you great advice as to how you can improve. I hope he’ll teach me how to get barreled one day 😉
