Surfing is like dancing with nature. But sometimes you just have to ride the wave you’re given.

Wayan Ladra

My Name is Wayan and I am local surf and tour guide in Bali. I was born and raised at the sea shore in Tanah Lot, Bali. I learned surfing on the top half of a broken surfboard when I was eight years old. And since, I can not imagine being without a board at my side.

At the age of 16, I started to show tourists around the island and my home town Tanah Lot, the place with the famous temple which was built on rocks in the sea. I probably surfed every beach in Bali and I’m eager to show you the best of them!

“Wayan’s enthusiasm and happiness is highly contagious, but he also brings the required amount of attention, so his guests will always be safe in every situation. He’s a child at heart and full of surprises.”

Whether you explore Bali or improve your surf skills with me, you’ll definitely end up having a fun time and go back with great memories and a deeper insight into the Balinese culture. 

I’m looking forward to meet you!


Why surf with me?

Lots of fun

Whether you explore Bali or improve your surf skills with me, you’ll definitely end up having a fun time and go back with great memories and a deeper insight into the Balinese culture.

It's Magic

There’s some magic about being on the ocean, surrounded by nature only, waiting for next wave… Let me show you what I’m talking about.

IT's safe

I provide an exciting surf lesson program to encourage you to the fantastic surf experience from paddling, break the waves and safety until standing on board.

Wayan is the man!

Awesome surf coach and genuinely a nice person who’s easy to be around. I have been to a few surf camps and have had other lessons and I can honestly say some of Wayan’s advice helped me the most. You want to have fun surfing in Bali and progress your surfing skills then you should make sure to surf with him. You will not regret it!

Great surf coach

Did a handful of sessions with Wyn in the Canggu area and a trip to Medewi. Found it hard to find a decent surfcoach in Bali as a (more or less) intermediate surfer. Was looking for a knowledgeable coach who could give me some useful tips to get me to the next level. Wyn ticks all those boxes and got me to the right spots. He is positive, fun to be with and takes coaching seriously! Would definitely recommend him and cannot wait to get back to Bali!

Fun, knowledgeable, fantastic service

With no recommendation it was by luck that I found Wayan and Bali Surf Guide, and it was without a doubt the best experience of my trip and one of the best of my life! He has amazing skills in surfing, teaching and Bali knowledge. He gave me confidence, taught me foundation skills, challenged and empowered me to learn so much in just two lessons. Personalised tips, specific feedback for improvement and safety in what was unknown waters for me. His approach is gentle, fun and individualised. He is genuine, generous and an absolute legend at what he does. So much care and kindness with the right amount of challenge made my time in the water and out so much fun. If I could do it all over again I would have taken 10 more lessons. I’ll be back Bali Surf Guide

Wayan is a great guy and an even better surf guide

Wayan is a great guy and an even better surf guide. I surfed with him 3x while I was in Bali, and had tons of fun. I was looking to really improve my surfing and he was able to help me push my limits while maintaining my safety. Paddling out at Uluwatu for the 1st time with Wayan was one of the highlights of my trip.
He 100% local Balinese, knows where to find the waves, and really cares about his guests. He is the perfect mix of a true professional with a super cool surfer vibe. I highly recommend him to any surfer regardless of skill level.
I know I have a good friend and awesome surf guide whenever I return to Bali.

My favorite surf guide – highly recommended

I got Wayan / Bali Surf Guide recommended by a friend. Got in touch with him trough email and was surfing with him the next day already. Wayan took me to surf spots according to my surf level around Canggu and Tanah Lot area. He stuck with me in the water all the time and gave me detailed instructions and feedbacks on my surfing. I improved my surfing a lot with every session I took with him! He’s really a professional surf guide, probably the best in Bali! He knows all the good surf spots and different breaks and guided me in every situation such as small and big waves, beach or reef breaks. I had a lot of fun with him all the time in the water while surfing or waiting for waves or after surfing at some cool bars enjoying a Bintang. Beside surfing I booked him as a tour guide to visit a few nice places around Bali such as temples, waterfalls and rice terraces.
I will definitely book him again.

Wayan was the best decision

I never surfed before and to learn it with Wayan was the best decision I could have made, I had so much fun surfing every day for a week! He is a skilled teacher and could give me so many good tips and had so much pacience with me! Also he makes sure you learn it the proper way and not start with mistakes that you have to correct later on! Thanks a lot, I’ll be back next year!

The best choice you can make

Surfing with Wayan is one of the best choices you can make on Bali – it is big fun, you learn & improve much. He is super professional, reliable and helpful. And he makes you wanna paddle, if you cannot paddle anymore 🙂
Thanks/Suksemo!

You can’t stop the wave, but you can learn how to surf with this guy!

Having Wayan as a surf guide for two weeks was absolutly terrific!
I’ve never been surfing before and he showed me every single move with an incredible amount of patience and passion. Every little progress put a big smile on his face and he beamed with pride. It didnt take me long to see that he truly loves what he does and will do what ever it takes to make sure that you’ll have the best surfing experience no matter what level your experience is based on.

So much patience and a joyfull vibe

I met Wayan in the water, while he was teaching someone else. I changed surfinstructor because I thought this guy was a better teacher and he definitly was. So much patience and a joyfull vibe, I will definitly come back to Canggu to get some more surflessons from Wayan!

I’m so glad I met this surf teacher!

He helped me to improve my surfing skills a lot. He was able to see my weeknesses and helped me to correct them. He also gave me time and didn’t force me to do more than I could stand. I gained a lot of confidence with him. I really felt his long term experience as a proper surf coach. My experience with Wayan was suprising as I already have had lessons with another teacher who was very passive and not able to give me as useful tips as Wayan gave me.

Definitely be going out with him again

Wayan was recommended to me by a friend who had already been taking surf lessons and after I spoke with him I had a good feeling that he was the kind of instructor I needed. I took many lessons with him. Wayan is not only an instructor for beginner surfers but also an excellent coach if you are looking to improve your skills and graduate your level of surfing. His perfect English means that communication is never a problem and his patient attitude and obvious experience is very encouraging. I would highly recommend Wayan if you are a beginner surfer or if you are looking to improve and progress skills you have already learned. I will definitely be going out with him again.

Not only a great surf teacher

It was the first time that I touched a surfboard and after ten sessions I was able to catch waves on my on and ride them all along to beach. Wayan is not only a great surf teacher he also took my to nice places, which were a bit hidden and so not crowded with other tourists. He is also very spontanious and give his best to fullfil you wishes.
I had an amazing time…thank you

A skilled teacher who shares his love for surfing

If you are looking for a surf guide in Bali, this is your man! He is a skilled teacher who shares his love for surfing. His tips are easy to understand and to follow. Even though I was quite scared by the waves, I enjoyed my first surfing lesson because Wayan took good care of me. Thanks again!

Best surfguide I’ve ever met!

Whether you’re seeking instructions to improve your surfing skills or simply looking for the best surfspots in Bali – Wayan is your man! He is a passionate and professional instructor always giving constructive feedback. Wayan helped me loosing fear of tall waves – thanks for that!!! I had a great time and surely will come back!

There are so many good things to say!

I had the absolute best time with Wyn. We surfed everyday for a month and I learned so much and pushed my limits. We had so much fun in the water. I think i asked every question about surfing there is and he always had a logical answer. He made me feel totally comfortable in the water no matter how big the waves seemed to be. Thanks to bali surf guide, surfing will be apart of my life forever. He worked with me from practically the very beginning..all the way until the very end. The waves got bigger and bigger and the boards got shorter and shorter. Even know he is helping me with advice on things I can do to keep up my training while I’m not at the ocean catching waves. Friends for life. Thank you again!
