What if I damage a surfboard during a lesson?

Usually we adopt the ‘You break, you pay’ policy. However, if a board gets damaged during a lesson beyond your control, DHM will take responsibility of the repairs or arrange responsibility of the respective 3rd party.

On the other hand, if a customer fails to follow explicit safety instructions of a DHM instructor, and subsequently damages the board, the customer might be held responsible.

What is the price of a surf lesson in Lombok?

Yes, we also offer separate surf lessons, as found in our packages. All included, the price for our surf lesson in the south of Lombok is 40 euros. This price is average in Lombok, with prices ranging between 30 – 50 euros. However, with our included add-ons, 40 euros becomes a really good deal.

To clarify, these lessons cover half a day to a surf spot accommodating your surf level. A lesson includes surf gear, transport, zinc, snacks and surf photography. You can pick a board from the vast range of quality surfboards we have and feel free to ask for a famous Jamu drink to boost your surf. The lessons itself consists of around 15 minutes of surf theory, followed by an extensive two hour surf lesson.

What is the difference between a surf lesson and surf guiding?

A surf lesson is a professional lesson which includes an explanation of the basics and an extensive course in the water. Surf lessons are perfect for beginners. Usually, students use soft-top surfboards and the teacher will give direct instructions in the water while pushing the students in the waves. As for surf guiding, teachers will give a briefing about the surf spot matching the student’s abilities. When in the water, the teacher will provide technical feedback to the student and make sure the student catches as many waves as possible. Where surf lessons are a more direct form of teaching, surf guiding involves the teacher to provide safety and insights before and after waves.
