Surf Coaching Trip
7 days of coached surfing, barrels, coconuts & good times!
Improve your surfing skills on the world most perfect waves
The surf holiday you have always dreamt about, in the Indonesian heaven of world-class waves!
From barrels to long playful walls, Nias has something to offer to surfers of all levels!
Improve your surfing skills and step to the next level with daily video coaching held by Giulia, ISA Level 2 Surf Instructor and Founder of Sliding Chronicles. This is a unique chance to work on specific techniques, to learn how to do manoeuvres and to gain confidence in the water day after day. We are going to use land simulations to learn the right movements and then train them in the natural wave-pool of Lagundry.
Survival Apnea teaches surfers how to deal with intense situations in the ocean with more ease. It helps increase performance through the development of self-awareness, self-control and the forging of body and mind resilience. During the trip will go through different breathing and breath-holding exercises to increase our lung capacity and understand the dynamics of hold-downs and what happens in our bodies in that while.
Are you ready to head to Paradise?
The surf house
Born by the legendary local surfer Hash, the losmen of “Hash & Family Surf Camp” has been carried on by his wonderful daughter Elvira, who is the real spirit of the camp and will make your experience unforgettable!
The rooms are clean and cosy, with hot water and aircon! And the view from the terrace is outstanding and with no doubts the best one of the whole bay!
The food is delicious with a great variety of local and western meals, freshly caught fish, veggies options and the best fresh tropical juice!
Rainbows, turtles and pink sunsets are just some of the adds on to this perfect place!
Nias, aka Lagundry Bay, aka Sorake, has been ranked one of the 10 best waves worldwide!
The main break of the horseshoe-shaped Lagundri Bay is a barrelling right-hander breaking over a deep reef. This wave breaks and barrels at all size swells, all tides and all (light) winds!
The access to the line-up from the keyhole is super easy and requires just a short dry-hair paddle!
Nias is not only for advanced hardcore surfers! With small off-season swells, the main peak is accessible also to intermediate surfers and the inside section Kiddies Corner is a fun mellow wave perfect for beginners and low intermediates, longboards and cruisers.

We met Iyan on our first trip to Nias a few years ago. He was very young, but already very professional. He has a great talent with the camera and he is an amazing surfer himself.
Iyan is always on the spot! With his team, they take photos and videos from the boat and from land to get the best shot depending on the light. And they never miss a wave!
With extreme passion, Giulia always encourages me to give the best of myself in the water, to trust myself and push my limits a bit more.
Patience, liveliness, strength and attention are all characteristics that this sport requires, and Giulia transmits them all.
No matter the level of our group, she always looks for the perfect conditions to make the surfing easy and smooth. You can not hope for a better coach!
I did an Apnea Survival course with Giulia and I highly recommend her. The two days course was amazing and I learnt so much.
Within 2hrs I was able to increase holding my breath from 1:05 up to 2:45min!
Giulia is an amazing and calm teacher who gives you the right amount of confidence and support!
I did a training with Giulia and it definitely changed my perspective of water and will have a big impact on my surf. The training she delivered was amazing, in the way she did it, and also to realize what’s your body is actually able to do. I’m not afraid anymore to stay under the water and even kind of like it !!! This training worth it and I highly recommend Giulia as a trainer to do it, she is the reason we made it so well, because of her approach. She is perfect! Merci
