Life as a Surf Instructor is pretty sweet, with your daily life being filled with sunshine, waves, smiles and heaps of ocean based stoke. Stoked Surf Adventures founder Chris has spent the last few years season hopping across the globe, it really is a ticket to a life of travel and serious job satisfaction!
You’ll go through a structured programme of both land and water based lessons and gain confidence in the waves, learning about the ocean, the sport and taking the leap into a lifestyle that, with no doubt, will change how you see the world.
✓ You are looking in to becoming a surf instructor but you are not fully ready to take the actual exam
✓ You’re looking for a 12 week epic surf adventure in Bali and Indonesia.
✓ You want to turn the beach into your office!
✓ You’re looking for an epic way to work and travel
Your professional instructors will help push you in a supported and safe environment, allowing you to increase your fitness and ocean knowledge. Starting from the very basics of learning to “pop” and ride the white wash you’ll soon progress to riding unbroken waves, learning about ocean safety and become a confident and competent surfer.
Over the 3 month period, you will set yourself personal challenges, tackling bigger waves, a variety of surf breaks and get your paddle power sorted.
Trust us, paddle power is the key to enjoying a long, successful session in the waves!
For those with some prior surf knowledge there is also a 4 or an 8 week option, allowing you to complete the course in a shorter time period.
Before you know it, you’ll have learnt all the skills needed to be a success surf instructor, breezed through an internationally recognised Level 1 Surf Instructor exam (ISA Level 1) and you’ll be on your way to living the dream and passing on the stoke!
It’s not all hard work in the waves (if you can really call it that!) you’ll have the weekend free to explore the local area and there are some awesome mini trips included to help you experience the amazing culture and experiences Bali and the other Indonesian Islands have to offer.
Surf trips such as Lombok and G-Land take you to some of the best waves on the planet and non surf activities such as trips to Ubud, snorkelling on Lembongan and the famed Monkey Forest allow you to enjoy Bali away from the waves too!
Throughout your Surf Instructor Course you’ll be based in the awesome town of Canggu, popular for its waves, artisan culture and laid back vibes. It really sums up what surfing in Bali is all about!
The surf villas you’ll be staying at come kitted out with 2 pools, A/C, private bathrooms and even a bar – so you’ll be living the dream throughout your stay
If you already have a solid knowledge of surfing then we also offer a 4 and 8 week Bali surf instructor course to help you get your certification even quicker.
You’ll need to be confident with surfing unbroken waves and if you opt for the 4 week Bali surf instructor course top and bottom turns in both directions too.
Chat to our surf experts if you have any questions about which is the best option for you!
You will leave here not only with a heap of qualifications, which mean the ocean is your office, but with heaps of amazing memories and a new found surf crew of like minded individuals, welcome to the surf community!

Great surfhouse, great food with different options (vegetarian, vegan). Friendly staff and surf instructors. Definetely will come back to one of the surfhouses! 🧡🤙🏼
The place has a great atmosphere, the staff is super nice and helpful, the rooms are spacious and get cleaned every day. The pool is nice, breakfast is delicious and the surfing and yoga was exactly how I wanted it to be. There is seriously not a single thing to complain about.
Felt like home from the first second on. Everything is well organised, very friendly and professional staff in all areas.
Was the best thing I could do 🙂 I travelled alone but it felt like being at home! The best team of surf instructors and perfect crew in the house. Very clean rooms and delicious breakfast. I enjoyed every minute and will go back for sure!
