Highlights

Insider tip from Lee Ling, Georgina, and Britta: 
"The wave season will end in March and then our host Ajil will pause this trip until November. So if you want to go, we recommend to go now. We have heard great reviews about this trip both from absolute beginners and more advanced surfers (check below), so we highly recommend it to you."

What you'll do:
We will board the bus at 6am in Singapore (if we are 4 people only, we'll take the car instead) - crossing the border early to avoid the traffic jam. Once in JB, we'll have breakfast there.

The drive will then take us to a beach in Johor with nice surf for beginners. We will rent surfboards and the adventure begins.

Reviews

  • Enjoyed the class and would definitely recommend! The class started with a short briefing, and we started paddleboarding under close supervision and guidance. Han gave us lots of useful tips to correct our mistakes. Learned how to paddleboard in one session! It was fun too. Great for beginners :)

  • Very relaxed start of our weekend. First a little practise on the beach, then into the water. On the board and in the water again.....:) Was fun! Thanks Norehan!

Read more 560/ pax is way too much for a crap accomodation and a budgeted meal.. resorts/hotels nearby rates was 30-40sgd only with a 4star like facilities. Food was very cheap on that place yet our budget was for mei goreng-like-food only. I’ve learned a lot more from my 2hours surfing lesson in Bali..than this 4days trip. As basic as how to handle the surfboard was never taught...that results an accident of one of my co-traveller.. the surfboard of other person bump into her head when strong waves passby..it happens in a shallow water when they are not yet riding (surfing). Poorly organised trip which i recommend people not to join. You (or your groupof friends) can go directly to BatuKaras which i guess may save you a lot of money. the star i vote is for the beautiful place, the locals, and to our very understanding guide.

Batu Karas is a very chill place. You won't be able to find bars / clubs there. You can get your bintang fixs at Warungs. 2. All the surfing instructors were really friendly and helpful. The main instructor Mencos is an National Athlete (one of the top longboarder in the world) that is really fun and humble. The instructors will stay in the water to guide and help us learn how to surf. Managed to stand a little on day 2 with the great guidance. 3. Everything at Batu Karas was pretty cheap. 4. Dinner Barbeque(1 day) included in the trip is amazing. Fantastic live band and amazing food. Looks like every travellers will appear for the barbeque night that happens every Friday @ VillaMonyet Bads 1. Poor planning by Champion Ajil. We inform him that we will stay an additional night in bandung, he was not able to plan in advance. Everytime we ask him for the additional cost and plans, he only replies, "i will let you know." Even until the last day before we leave Batu Karas. In the end, we decided to arrange our own accommodation and transport in Bandung. 2. Champion did not join for trip as per advertised. Only met him at Changi Airport. He ask the group to fly to bandung and meet the local tour guide ( Mencos ) . 3. Room arranged by the champion was basic but clean. Explored the village and found out that there were many accommodations that was "Bali-Style" and very cheap($30-$40/night(twin/queen)). Our accommodation does NOT have what other accommodations provided: a. Free Wifi b. Towels c. Heater Shower d. Breakfast (Tour guide will bring you out for breakfast that was included in package) e. Swimming Pool. 4. All the meals included was really basic (One main + One drinks ) , except for barbeque dinner night. 5. It takes very long to travel to batu karas, would recommend the trip to be longer, to make the travelling time worthy. 6 hours is a very very optimistic estimation. All in all, trip was good because of great company( my new friends! ) , amazingly nice locals and location. Alot of travellers we met also mentioned that batu karas is a great place for learning, from their experience of travelling to other surfing places. Learning surfing is not easy, definitely need more than 2-3 days for the basics. Overall : 4 Stars for Batu Karas. 2 Stars for Champion. Read less
