Lombok offers world-class waves for surfers of all levels. Our instructors are happy to take you to challenging waves that will help you improve your surfing skills.
How should I prepare for surfing?
The most important thing when coming to our surf camp is that you are a good swimmer. Even though you can come with no prior training, surfing is a physically demanding sport that can easily tire you, we recommend training your upper body before the camp so that you can get the most out of every day.
Is a surf camp something for me?
If you are looking for an active holiday where you'll learn to surf without having to worry about anything, this is for you. We also want to to be able to do your own thing. We offer all kinds of fun activities for you to choose from. Feel free to go wherever you like and to do whatever you want.
Our surf camp is great for solo travellers, friends travelling together, couples, and anyone else who wants to enjoy a week full of surfing in a friendly community.
How do I get to the surf camp?
There are two main options for you to come to LMBK surf camp. The first option is to fly to Lombok (simply search for ‘Lombok’ on any travel search engine). Pick up from the airport is included in the package. The second option is to take a boat from Bali or from the Gili islands or to Lombok. We can arrange pick up from the harbour for you for an extra fee.
Boat and flight tickets between Bali and Lombok have similar prices: they cost around 40 euros for a round trip. Direct international flights to Lombok airport depart from several airports, including (but not limited to) Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Perth.
It’s great to combine a trip to Lombok with a visit to either Bali or the Gili Islands. Read our blog about Gili Air to discover why this place is definitely worth a visit.
Do I need a visa to travel to Indonesia?
For most countries of origin, a visa is not necessary. As long as you have a passport, you can get a free visa that lasts for 30 days when you arrive at the airport. This visa cannot be extended. Your passport should be valid at least 6 months after your arrival date. If you want to stay longer than 30 days, or if your country is not in the list of countries that can get a visa on arrival, you might require to go to the Indonesian embassy in your country to get a visa for Indonesia before travelling. Please make sure to check if your country is eligible to enter Indonesia before travelling.
Are there any concerns to take into account when travelling to Indonesia?
We recommend you to have good travel insurance that covers surfing. Surfing is sometimes marked as a dangerous sport by insurance companies, so make sure any possible injuries caused by surfing are covered by your insurance company. Better safe than sorry!
LMBK surf camp is based in Kuta. Kuta is a very easy-going town, and we always feel safe here. Take normal precautions, just like you would do when travelling to any other country.
Why should I visit Lombok instead of Bali?
Lombok offers incredible waves, pristine beaches (sometimes just for you), great cafes with healthy food and friendly locals without the crowds.
Bali is more commonly known than Lombok. We recommend Lombok if you are interested in having a fun beach, surf and yoga holiday. Discover the island, without the crazy traffic that is common in Bali. Overall, Lombok offers a more authentic experience, empty lineups, pristine nature and a fun nightlife.
How does the airport pickup work?
When you arrive on Lombok, we will pick you up from the airport (included in your package) or from the ferry from the Gili Islands or Bali (for an extra cost). Arrivals can take place any day of the week. You can check in from 3:00 pm onwards.
