Bali urban resort, Mamaka by Ovolo has teamed up with Quiksilver Bali Surf Academy

The island renowned surfing school will have an academy located within the resort offering surfing tuition for guests.

Quiksilver Bali Surf Academy has a team of ISA-certified instructors and complements Mamaka’s prime location close to Kuta’s famed waves and golden sands.

Quiksilver Bali Surf Academy is locally family-owned by Made Switra and his Australian wife, Holly Monkman.

Made is one of Bali’s legendary surfing pioneers having travelled the world and surfing as a sponsored Quiksilver team rider.

“To be in partnership with Mamaka and be a part of the Ovolo family will certainly attract surfers from around the globe to ride the waves of the Kuta Beach once more.” Made said.

Surfing was first introduced in Indonesia by Americans Bob and Louis Koke in the mid-1930s

He taught some of the locals to surf, which sparked the beginning of the island’s unique surf history.

In the late 1930s, Made Switra’s grandfather, who had a penchant for shaping wooden boards, discovered Bob Koke’s abandoned surfboard and decided to bring it home.

This surfboard is now showcased in Mamaka’s lobby.

“At Mamaka, we aim to provide guests with good vibrations and enjoy the ultimate Bali experience,” Joel Bartlett, General Manager of Mamaka by Ovolo said.

With Quiksilver Bali Surf Academy as our official partner, our goal is to give guests an exceptional surfing experience in the birthplace of Bali’s surf culture.”
