Surf coaching

At the beginning, we will cover basic longboard skills to build a foundation. This will include where to position yourself when laying down, good paddling technique, how to turtle roll/go over the waves, where to place your feet when standing. Depending on your level and your personal goals, we’ll work on turning, cross-stepping and noseriding. We’ll also practice some land drills before heading in the water and review all the sessions from the day. You’ll gain knowledge on how to read waves, where to paddle when a set is coming and what to do when there are big waves. You can expect lots of ocean knowledge and plenty of time for individual questions and improvements.

**Note: To be able to participate you will need to be able to catch the waves on your own.

Learnt to surf at a young age and was a competitive surfer during high school in San Diego, California. Moved to O’ahu, Hawai’i, at 18 to pursue her dreams of surfing where she joined local competitions and surfed most of her days. She spent time with some of the best surfers on the island (of all ages) and learnt from them true water skills. Worked on the beach The Waikiki Beach Boys and taught surfing at two different surf schools to, later on, move to Australia and teach there. She did two competitions while abroad, taking 1st place in one and 3rd place against two-times world champ, Honolua Blomfield, in the other. Later she travelled to Fiji, Mexico, around Hawai’i, Australia and Indonesia. At 20 completed her yoga teacher training and worked as a yoga teacher for 2 years before travelling the world. She’s been practising for 10 years and enjoys sharing this magical gift with others.

Anyone who is keen to learn more about longboarding. However, you will need to be able to catch your own waves to be able to participate. If you are a complete beginner, you can visit us on any other date to learn the basics of surfing.

The maximum number of participants is 10 people. We want to give you our full attention and that’s the reason we will not accept more people. So hurry up and book now!

We try to surprise you every day with a breakfast special with a western dish with a local twist or the other way round. Every day we also offer a choice of eggs your way, bread and fruit. We always use fresh local ingredients. If you have any dietary requirements, drop us a note at the time of booking and we’ll make sure to be prepared.

We will welcome you with a delicious dinner and there will be a farewell beach BBQ.

We encourage you to bring your own board. However, if this is not possible, we can arrange a board for you for IDR 100.000 per day. Unfortunately, unlike Bali, longboards are not as common here to rent and hence the rental is more expensive.

WiFi is available everywhere around Xanadu. If you’re a digital nomad and still need to work while staying with us (which we hope you don’t!) , you don’t need to worry about the WiFi speed.

Xanadu is located in a quiet area, just a 3 minute-walk to the coolest street in Kuta, with many bars and restaurants. There are also a few surf shops and supermarkets nearby. Kuta Beach is always nearby.

Check-in 2 pm / Check out 11 am. But you can leave your luggage with us if you arrive earlier or leave later and hang out by the pool or in the lounge area.

Aside from spacious rooms, Xanadu features a swimming pool, tropical lounge area and rooftop yoga space.

If you are arriving by plane, we can arrange an airport pick-up from the airport to make your arrival hassle-free (additional charge IDR 150,000). Otherwise, you can see us on the map here. We’re located right in the centre of Kuta, on the south coast of Lombok. If you need transport from a different part of the island, let us know.

Many great places – local and non-local. You won’t be disappointed. We’re at the heart of all the action, tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac. You get the best of both worlds.
