Drop In Surf Lodge Lombok

Lombok - Bali’s untouched sister island!

Our small paradise hides between palm trees in the South of the beautiful subtropical Island Lombok, Bali’s untouched sister island. Lombok can be easily compared to Bali some 20 years ago with its still few tourists. Besides trekking the second highest still active volcano of Indonesia, Mount Rinjani, there are also endless white beaches with turquoise water, tropical waterfalls, rice paddies, small fishing villages and of course heaps of surf spots!

Drop In Surf Lodge is located 5 min. outside of the centre of the small village Kuta Lombok. One of the most beautiful beaches, Tanjung Aan, as well as the surf spots Seger and Gerupuk Bay are located in our neighbourhood!

ABOUT THE SURF CAMP

Location and surf conditions:
Drop In Surf Lodge is surrounded by palm trees and is located in a small neighbourhood a few minutes outside of Kuta. One of the most beautiful beaches, Tanjung Aan as well as the Surf spots Seger and Gerupuk Bay are only a short scooter-ride from Drop In.

Camp character
Drop In Surf Lodge offers space for 12 guests. The Lodge has a cosy, familiar atmosphere with all the comfort you need to relax and unwind during your holiday. The main languages in the camp are English as well as German (the three owners all speak german). Drop In is also the home of four friendly dogs that can be good entertainment.

Camp operator
We are three girls from Switzerland and Germany who love Lombok, its people and its waves. Our paths crossed in Kuta Lombok in 2012 and we soon realized that we all share the same dream - showing other people how beautiful Lombok is and giving them a home base from where they can discover the island. It started with building a house for ourselves and the Drop In Café which opened in spring 2014. Shortly after the first bungalows followed which opened in spring 2015. Our last step is following now with another 3 bungalows, the swimming pool and the chill area resulting in our Drop In Surf Lodge – a surf oasis with all the comfort or how we call it: a home away from home!

Surf course details
Lombok offers waves for every level. Our teacher and guides make sure that our guests are at the right spot at the right time. The time and spot for the session will be announced the day before and depends greatly on the tide and the swell. Transport and material is organised by the teachers and the lesson itself is held in small groups: one teacher for two guests! This ensures that every guest gets maximal amount of waves and instructions cut to their personal skills and needs. A surf session takes about 3.5 to 5 hours including transport, short boat trip and information at the spot. The lessons and instructions are held in English.

Beautiful oasis in relaxed Kuta. Great place with great attention to detail. Very friendly and relaxed vibe. 10min to Kuta on scooter (recommend to rent onsite), 5mins to tanjung aan beach. Would be nice to have dinner facilities. Highly recommended.
