Who is Considered a Beginner Surfer?

Beginner surfers are considered beginner surfers! If you know how to surf or plan to bring your own equipment, you must book as a surfing guest. Beginner surfers are permitted to surf at Fish Fingers wave only, using the soft-top learning boards only. Beginners are not permitted to surf any other waves unless partaking in an intermediate lesson with hired surf board. The opportunity to advance to a more challenging wave is at the discretion of our surf instructors, for your safety.

What Waves can a Beginner Surfer Surf?

Beginners are permitted to surf at Fish Fingers only initially. Beginners may take Intermediate & Advanced Surf Lessons to try other waves at the discretion of our surf instructors. If a beginner wishes to surf at Mini Macas or Silabu Left, they may pay for an intermediate surf lesson and must also pay for a surf board rental if the instructor agrees the surfer is ready. Pricing for Intermediate Surf Lesson: RP300,000/hour + RP100,000 Board Rental

Come Visit & Learn to Surf!

At Macaronis you can learn to surf in paradise and experience something few have ever seen. This isolated and incredible destination is waiting for you!

My wife and I brought along my wife’s sister and my brother in law (beginners). I was afraid the surf would be too difficult for them. What we found was one of the best places to be, with every kind of surf level; ‘Fish Fingers’ for beginners and ‘Mini Macas’ to intermediate level are perfect, and Macas no words to describe…!! I have recommended your resort to all my friends, so thank you to for a wonderful week, I hope to return soon.
