    Product Terms & Conditions

    Surfer policy We want to provide your clients with an unforgettable crowd free surfing experience and to do so we limit the number of surfers at Nihiwatu to ten only. There may be times, due to an extended booking, that an additional surfer is booked for a few days but generally we are strongly committed to our ten-surfer quota. For groups booking the whole resort there is no limit on the number of surfers - that is left up to the group to decide.

    Up to 10 surfers at the same time

    Surf slots are charged at USD $100.00 per day

    Guests name is required to put on our registered surfer list

    No rotation is available
