Bali’s first urban resort, Mamaka By Ovolo, now has another first announcing the launch of the Rip Curl School of Surf. Mamaka By Ovolo is the only hotel in the world to have an official Rip Curl School of Surf.
Rip Curl School of Surf has been a staple part of Bali’s tourism, offering for over twenty years now. Providing comprehensive water sports packages that elevate their services beyond the expectations of their customers time and time again. From tourists looking to get in the water for the first time, to seasoned professionals, the Rip Curl schools plays host to all comers. Established in 1998, they are the original surf school in Bali.
Started before Bali became synonymous with surf tourism, the school has gone from strength to strength over its tenure as the premier surf school in Bali. Voted as such in back-to-back Surf Time Awards.
Over this time, Rip Curl School of Surf have established themselves as a part of the Island in Bali. In and of itself a celebration of the relationship between Rip Curl and Indonesia. A brand constantly looking for ways to connect with the community, and give back to the Island, whether through the countless CSR activations, Mangrove restoration or the ongoing coral garden programmes.
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.
It now presents the incredible benefit of being able to bring the ultimate surfing experience to Mamaka guests in house. Being able to utilise the dedicated facilities to make the most out of their surfing journey. Having a hotel that resonates the same values as the Rip Curl School of Surf is imperative to continuing the already well established institution.
Officially accepting would be surfers, Mamaka now hosts a full time classroom managed by the Rip Curl School of Surf. Taking its inspiration from a bygone era, where blackboards were commonplace and laptops weren’t invented yet. Guests and visitors will be encouraged to join regularly held surf presentations such as “Surf 101”; an insight into surf history, surf science, essential equipment knowledge, required physical and mental preparation to be a valued member of the surf community and spread the stoke. Utilising the awesome fitness centre of the Mamaka, Rip Curl School of Surf will be launching their ‘Get Fit to Rip’ classes for guests to prepare and develop the strengths required to power into waves and define their surfing skills.
For all ages and stages, let the Rip Curl School of Surf at the Mamaka by Ovolo be your starting point and surf centre of the Bali universe. Keep the stoke and ride a wave.
