In 1989 it was "Pencak Silat", a type of martial arts,that brought Ari to a training camp in Indonesia, where he was meant to be preparing for competitions in the homeland of this old Malaysian martial art. However, it wasn't long before he got hooked on something completely different.......surfing, and the enchanting way and mentality of the people here. And thus the idea of a Bali Surfari was born. The years that followed saw him laying the foundation for the first Kima Bali Surf Camp along with his best mate, Boris.
Kima Surf has now been organising Surf Camps and Surfaris since 1995. Of course lots of things have changed since then, but one thing still remains: it's a get-together of like-minded people with the one and the same passion - surfing as a life-style.
Our team is Ari, Roland, Tano and Felix (Office and Communication), Lars and Joko (Camp Managers), Kacrut and Angga (Guide Team Leaders) as well as our international and local Guide team.
And of course, not to forget our competent drivers, Made and Ngurah and the entire team (all 21 of them) at the "The Green Room Seminyak" Hotel!.
We all have one commitment: working hard to make the idea of the Bali Surf Camp an unforgettable experience for you.
