Our Surf STORY

CARI Surf Bali was founded by two friends who have the desire to share their experiences and surf knowledge with like-minded people from all over the world.

 

“We believe that surfing is not just a sport, a lifestyle or a cool “new” thing to do. It is a community of people who share the same passion and drive to look for new adventures, connections and goals.“

Our Surf Camp Team

For the last 10 years, Dave and Greg lived, worked and surfed in multiple countries across the globe, growing their knowledge about surfing, surf coaching and the industry. Bali has been a favorite surf destination for many years and has been their home since 2016. Over the years of working with the best surf camps and surf schools worldwide, it was time for them to bring their vision to life. Their own Surf Camp in Bali.

Dave

Dave’s passion for surfing began in 2009 while he was living in Australia. Since then, he has traveled the world exploring different surf spots across Europe, Morocco, Australia, and Southeast Asia. While traveling, he developed a passion for hospitality, learning about different cultures and how to make people feel welcome. During the past years of living and working in surf camps in Bali, Dave experienced a deep knowledge of the surf and hospitality industry. 

 

“I want to share this amazing experience with as many people as I can. Having happy guests come back is what drives me to provide the best service every day”

Greg

Greg started working as a surf instructor in 2013 and spent the next years traveling the world and teaching people how to surf. The Canary Islands, Spain, Morocco, Mexico, Sri Lanka and Guatemala were some of the workplaces before coming to Indonesia again. 

In Bali, working as a head surf coach, he was able to share his experience with local surf instructors, training them and improving their surf coaching abilities.

 

“My biggest strength is that I didn’t grow up surfing, but had to go through the learning experience myself. This gives me a great understanding of how my students feel, what they are going through and how to improve their surfing skills.”

The Covid-19 pandemic offered an opportunity to reset and start a new adventure. Shortly after it started, on a surf trip to Lombok, the two decided to team up and bring their vision to life. 

 

“We want to provide professional quality surf “EDUCATION”, not just coaching.

The surf camp industry has gone from tiny to massive in recent years and sadly from quality to quantity in many cases. We focus on small groups and individual coaching.

Understanding and mastering the fundamentals is what will improve your surfing skills the most. Not only technique; but also knowledge about the waves, tides and surf etiquette are fundamentally important.

Combine this with specific surf strength training and you will get the best possible results during your surf trip.” 

Every guest, team member and friend is a part of this refreshing new community that goes beyond Bali.

 

“The journey just starts here. Our mission goes all the way to West-Sumbawa where we are planning something very special. The waves and people there are just amazing. Together we create destinations of excitement, progression and everlasting memories. CARI Surf Camp is a place for everyone to meet, relax, share stories and develop their surfing skills to the next level.”

Stay tuned to get to know the rest of our team very soon!
