Activities in Bali
Canggu is known for its relaxed vibes and easy-going lifestyle, with at the same time a lively town full of things to do. The number of activities in Bali is varied and most of them are offered directly at the surf camp. Chill with a cool beer at the pool after surfing to relax your muscles. If you like to calm down from a ripping surf sesh in another way, why not go for a massage that is given to you right at the house. After this ultra-relaxing activity, you can take a nice nap in your nicely climatized room. To finish off the day, join us for a movie night in our outdoor cinema or indoors on our flat screens. If you still have energy left, you can rent one of the scooters for free and explore the surroundings.
Feeling something a little bit more active? Join one of our yoga classes, which are taking place every morning from 7:30 till 8:30 and from 17:00 to 18:00 in the evening. This relaxing and strength building practice after the Vinyasa-Yoga tradition, will compliment your surfing in numerous ways.
