Rip Curl School of Surf has opened new digs at Kuta Beach’s design-savvy Mamaka by Ovolo resort in Bali.
Don’t tell us that the first time you watched Point Break you didn’t want to learn to surf, ’cause we know you’ll be lying! The film (did you notice the Anthony Kiedis cameo?) was to surfing what Top Gun (the good one) did to Navy recruitment. If it wasn’t Point Break, it was probably something a little more realistic like The Endless Summer, an icon of cinematic creation for surfers and non-surfers alike. Either way, you momentarily got the bug, contemplated buying a board and some sex wax, and then got caught up in the day to days of a busy urban existence. Fortunately, it’s not too late.
Rip Curl School of Surf has been a staple part of Bali’s tourism for over 20 years now, catering to everyone from tourists looking to get in the water for the first time, to seasoned professionals. Now you can combine your next stay at the Mamaka by Ovolo on Kuta Beach with your surfing aspirations.
Rip Curl School of Surf has opened its newest facilities at the resort, including a dedicated classroom where guests and visitors can join regularly held surf presentations such as “Surf 101”; an insight into surf history, surf science, essential equipment knowledge, and required physical and mental preparation.
Utilising the awesome fitness centre of the Mamaka, Rip Curl School of Surf will also be launching its Get Fit to Rip classes for guests to prepare and develop the strength required to power into waves and define their surfing skills.
Operating from its primary locations in Legian and Sanur, the Rip Curl School also transports guests to wherever the conditions are best. Mamaka and Ovolo joining forces with Rip Curl School of Surf at Kuta’s halfway beach only strengthens the existing offering.
Combining a prime location with consistent waves and the ability to simply cross the street and kick back after a hard day’s surfing, knowing that you can have your Johnny Utah moments without any trouble with the local surf clans, because you’ve just become one of them.
