In the heart of Bali’s urban oasis, Mamaka By Ovolo, a new wave is crashing onto the scene with the introduction of the Rip Curl School of Surf – a groundbreaking collaboration that sets Mamaka apart as the world’s sole hotel with an official Rip Curl surf school.

For over two decades, the Rip Curl School of Surf has been an integral part of Bali’s tourism tapestry, consistently exceeding expectations with comprehensive water sports packages. Whether catering to first-time thrill-seekers or seasoned wave riders, this pioneering surf school, established in 1998, proudly holds the title of Bali’s original surf school, earning consecutive Surf Time Awards for its excellence.

Long before Bali became synonymous with surf tourism, the Rip Curl School of Surf stood as a beacon of expertise, growing into an institution that transcends the conventional. Operating from prime locations in Legian and Sanur, the school seamlessly adapts to optimal surfing conditions, and now, with the collaboration at Kuta’s halfway beach, Mamaka fortifies its commitment to offering an unparalleled surfing experience.


This strategic partnership opens a new chapter, allowing Mamaka guests to dive into the ultimate surfing journey.

The shared values of Mamaka and the Rip Curl School of Surf align seamlessly, creating an immersive experience for guests.

The newly established full-time classroom, inspired by a bygone era, will foster a connection between surf enthusiasts and the sport’s roots, featuring regular presentations like “Surf 101” – an exploration of surf history, science, essential equipment knowledge, and the physical and mental preparation integral to surf community membership.

Mamaka’s dedicated fitness centre will host ‘Get Fit to Rip’ classes, a unique offering by the Rip Curl School of Surf. Here, guests can prepare and cultivate the strength required to conquer waves and refine their surfing skills.

In this fusion of hospitality and surf culture, Mamaka and the Rip Curl School of Surf invite enthusiasts of all ages and stages to embark on their surfing journey.

Become part of the Bali universe’s surf center at Mamaka by Ovolo – where the stoke is contagious, and every wave is an opportunity to ride.
