There’s a wellness retreat on every corner in Bali these days so we wanted to design a program with a difference — combining our unique strengths with the top instructors in and out of the water, and delivering you the best possible experience.
What makes Padang Padang Surf Camp one of the most sought-after retreat centres in the world is not just the upmarket architect-designed accommodation, nor the world-class waves right on our doorstep, nor even the delicious healthy food, but the highly-qualified instructors that you won’t find elsewhere.
Our retreat leader Markus Davy (ERYT500) takes nonsense seriously.
As a decades-long yoga teacher/practitioner and dedicated surfer, he has developed a unique approach to teaching that explores the relationship between self-discipline and play.
Having explored a wide variety of yoga and movement systems, Markus offers a style all his own which encourages self-exploration and a willingness to ‘colour outside the lines’.
Inspired by nature in all its forms, Markus considers the ocean his primary teacher — drawing from it a profound understanding of the human condition.
Markus has led retreats and training across the globe instilling a deep sense of self-trust and freedom in his students. Classes with Markus will leave you feeling invigorated, empowered and more deeply connected to the world within and around you.
Born and raised on Lanzarote in the Canary Isles, Jason was never far from the ocean and began messing around on bodyboards and foamies from the age of eight.
By eleven, he was really starting to get the surfing bug and the rest is history with the years since including lots of surf coaching, entries in international WSL QS and Junior Tour competition events, being awarded his ISA surf coaching certificate, passing on his experience as a surf guide, and plenty of international surf travel.
Whether it’s your first day or you’ve been surfing for years, Jason has the skills and experience to help you have even more fun in the water.
