Access waves that only we know, with a surf-coach, in dreamy conditions.

Surf Coaching & Power Surf Classes with Rodrigo Machado

We will kick start the Indo season aboard the Royal Fortuna Cruise, a traditional Phinisi schooner. We joined last year on one of their trip and were absolutely mesmerised by the quality and quantity of waves we found as well as the overall experience on the boat. We will be taking the same route, from the Eastern tip of Sumbawa and reach the Western tip of Sumba 10-days later.

Rodrigo Machado will be onboard, which means daily video coaching and power surf techniques. You will observe major improvements in your surfing throughout the the trip. Not to mention that we may encounter waves just to ourselves throughout the trip. If you are free around these dates and want to improve your surfing, this trip is not to be missed!

This surfing program is designed for:



You’ve surfed enough to be hooked with surfing. You know how to take off, start doing turns and confident with your paddling. You want to improve your basic surf maneuvers and want to start learning more advanced maneuvers. You are fit enough to spend up to 4-hours surfing a day. You may also have been surfing for years but not consistently enough to see a progression and want to see a change in your surfing.



You surf consistently since already few years. You look out for the good swells and occasionally know how to find barrels and throw a spray after a snap. You want to deepen your surf techniques to bring more flow and power in your surfing. You are ready to push your surf to the next level.

What’s on the program?

  • Surf waves that only we know, this includes a great variety of rights and lefts for both intermediate and advanced surfers.

      Surf Retreat Bali

      Originally from the French Bask country, Uriel has been spending his past 5-years in Indonesia, “chasing waves and light”. Traveling with the bare minimum you need to stay stoke: a camera, a surfboard and a yoga mat. His mission is to bring awareness to our Oceans and more consciousness to our planet, through creativity and art. And when waves are pumping, he’ll be there sitting in the water waiting for you to exit the barrel.
