Hi my name is Nawir. I'm the owner of Bali Surf Instructor, i have over 10 years of experience as a surf instructor and I'm a passionate surfer.
I was born in the west of Bali and since I was a young boy I love to be in or around the ocean. My father is a traditional fisherman and when I went with him for fishing I always watched the older boys surfing. My dream was to be once as good as them.
I got my first surfboard from a friend and together with him I learned surfing. When I caught my first wave I knew that's what I want to do forever. Since then I spend all of my free time in surfing.
When I finished the hotelschool in Singaraja (North Bali) I got a job offer to work as a surfinstructor in a surfcamp. There I learned a lot about surf theory and teaching surfing to beginners and intermediate surfers. After 2 years I changed to a surfcamp in the south, to get more experiences in surfguiding. During this time I got certifications in:
In 2010 I met my wife Franzisca in this surfcamp. We fell deeply in love and in November 2014 we married and in September 2015 our daughter Malea was born. Now we are a happy little family and we travel between two countrys. In the European-Winter-Time we stay in Switzerland to go snowboarding and improving my German language skills. In European-Summer-Time we go back to Bali to follow our passions here.
After 7 years of working in a surfcamp I decided in 2014 to start my own surfbusiness. Teaching surfing is my passion and I want to teach you all about surfing. Doesn't matter if you are young or old, beginner or intermediate. I will find the perfect wave for you and you can enjoy a unforgettable surf experience.
