“Sick place, sick surf. Ads the surfguide is a legend.”
“In every aspect Fantastic!” – Gordon Schoffl
“We had a stokealishious time, frothing on these amazing waves. Look out for us groms next year.”
“Great trip. I was nervous not going with the boat option. Best surf trip ever.” – Dicko
“I just wanted to take the opportunity to sincerely thank Swilly for his contribution to our trip. It was a pleasure to meet you after seeing your work over the years.
I’m really happy with my pics…takes a true professional to make an ageing ‘grom at heart’ look good! Your stories added to the atmosphere of the whole trip and its one I’ll remember forever.
The boys are already talking up another trip to RLZ and I hope if you are available, we have the opportunity to share that one with you as well. Safe travels wherever that may take you and look forward to seeing your work in the future!”
“I’m attaching two photos for you..…the first one is from our first surf/day at Lance’s Left……& it was taken in the afternoon session and we reckon it was bigger in the morning…I know now why I was shaking after surfng a few of them ! As big a waves as we’ve surfed in a long time…
The other photo is me on a relatively smaller day at Scarecrows I think bit it was quality stuff…
Anyway, thanks again….the Nomad trip was the real surprsie winner for us…..(Skipper Eric fabulous) …& never having done a boat trip…it was sensational..…surf thru. the Mentawis for 6 days straight was unbelievable… we avoided crowds ….and food excellent……and to cap it off …waves at RLZ to follow as good too….thankfully smaller !
Only issues was seven very tired and sorry 50 + year old men trying to have enough energy to surf for 10 intense straight days…..we’re still recovering”
“Just wanted to say another thank you for our week on your island. The whole family had a blast and are talking about coming back next year already!! Had a few “fun” moments getting home but I guess these just make the memories and stories more exciting.
A credit to you and your staff for the hospitality shown and we won’t hesitate to recommend Latitude Zero to all our friends.”
“Definitely the ultimate surfing experiences. Plenty of waves, relaxation, and fun was had. Supported by a world class crew, food, and facilities.”
“Thanks for everything regarding our recent trip. Wanted to let you know we all had a ball. I calculated I did the equivalent of 6 months surfing in 2 weeks. Thanks for an outstanding holiday and the extraordinary effort that you went to look after us. Every detail was addressed. I was so impressed with the Resort, particularly the attitude of the staff. It is a great credit to Joel and Matt. Thanks again.”
“We are back home after a very fun trip. Your Resort is very well run. The staff seemed very eager to accomodate us and make our stay a good one. The surf was fun every day. We had plenty of time in the water. We enjoyed the other guests on the island. Larry is a great dog. The only complaint(?) is that the staff served too much food for dinner. Anyway, we are grateful for the experience.”
“Hooking up with the Freshie boys at Resort Latitude Zero has been amazing! You guys have the place wired and I had the most fun, the best waves and the most laughs ever. Thanks to you and all your support staff who make it happen. Special thanks to Adam, Chad, Apony, Robin, Ferri & all surfing crew. All resort staff including Santi, Uni, Christina and Latitude Larry…. Also to Budgie & Gareth for keeping it real. I’ll be back next year.”
“Thanks very much for a fantastic trip, the waves at the start of the week were pumping and I got plenty of rides that would make it into my top ten of all time! Even when the swell dropped, I still had a great time on the smaller ones. Thanks very much to you and the team, Sman was the perfect guide, full of info, enthusiasm and a great story or two. Adam was laid back and philosophical, Joel had the weight of the world on his shoulders, but carried it with grace, making sure everything was perfect. The resort was outstanding – well done on a great set up, I loved the attention to the environment with the water bottles and no plastic.
Thanks again – it was a great trip.”
What an amazing trip I had and the waves where great. Thanks for the brilliance of your pictures, you really have a great skill and passion for surf, I really admire you for your natural ability to live and love life. you get stoked on a lot of things and I must say your so in tune with mother ocean nature.Thanks again for the great photos, hope we get one in a mag!! Hope we can meet again one day..If those pro girls have a free spot on board let me know. hahaJeremy west (Jezza)
“It has taken me 30 years to get to Indonesia, but the wait has been worth it. RLZ has made my dreams come true. Surf, fishing, resort, food, staff and mates 5 star.”
Great Resort and haven’t had service like this in Oz for 20 years. Very accommodating.
“The trip was brilliant.”
“Wolf and I had a great time at RLZ, in spite of the bad weather the end of last week. Can’t wait to get back – we will probably do the boat/land package next time. We really appreciate what you have created and wanted to give a special shout out to Joel and Adam – great watermen and very cool guys to hang out with.
I am particularly appreciative of their tending to Wolf’s reef cut on his elbow. They did a stellar job keeping him in the water and smiling! Food was terrific and the rest of the staff were all great and super friendly. A fantastic set up surrounded by some epic surf. We look forward to seeing you guys again, after our summer holidays.”
“Once again thanks to all the crew at Resort Latitude Zero for another great trip. The staff get better, facilities improve and the waves, if possible, get better. Please pass on our thanks to all the team and your family!”
“Super impressed will be back. Adam was an awesome guide.”
“I just wanted to give you some feedback. Had an awesome trip. Venue was stunning, food was sensational and the staff and service were friendly and attentive. The surf was great and special thanks to Adam and the boat boys for their surf tips, sense of humour and efforts to put us on good waves. Everyone in the group had a great time, and for my boys the call was the best holiday they have ever had. Thanks heaps to everyone. Currently suffering depression looking at crap cold surf! Already planning our next trip.”
“The trip was all the time!! Everyone was so friendly & welcoming, the food 5 star quality. The saying of the trip ” You can do what ever you like” made our holiday that much better. Waves & photo’s were amazing & was the perfect setting for our beautiful engagement – at lovers point! A place we will never forget & most definitely be returning to! Thank you for all the staff for the perfect holiday!” – Kate & Trent 🙂
“Thanks for an unbelievable trip to RLZ. Adjusting back to the real world hasn’t been easy ! Especially when it’s only 8 degrees in Adelaide ! So, I figure I’d better start planning my next trip to lat zero !”
“Fantastic. Great surf guides and accommodation and not to mention waves in a pristine area.” – Dennis Wilson
“One word for the new bungalow…..WOW!!!!!! It is super spectacular. You’ve nailed it! The little touches like the floor lighting when you into the bathroom are ace. I reckon you might struggle to get rid of us after 5 weeks, haha. Not much surf today so we came hom early – Garth chilling on the balcony playing guitar to his fan club – Larry! So he’s stoked as can be.
Thanks soooo much for letting us stay in the bungalow, it just takes things to a whole ‘nother level. Garth says it doesn’t matter if it’s flat for 5 weeks, he’s so happy to just sit out front and chill :-)”
“I cant speak too highly of Rob as a guide, he was awesome. I feel very blessed to have had Chad, Adz, S-Man and now Rob as my guides. They all epitomize the stoke at RLZ.”
“I would like to convey my appreciation and gratefulness to the way in which your RLZ is run, my son Joel and myself had an amazing 7 days on your island and will definitely be back in 2015 with Kong’s Academy. We would like to personally thank Wal, Sman, Swilly, Julie, Santi ,Adam and all staff for their hospitality and professionalism over our complete stay.
Swilly is very professional and hard working and depicted our trip with amazing photos in and out of the water. There was nothing more we could have asked for or needed and the experience of Sman and Adam in the boats ensured a hassle and injury free adventure for our sons at all times. The food was amazing and the Bintangs icy cold and with water temp of 25 degrees it was truly an island paradise.
You should be very proud of what you have achieved in building such an amazing resort in such a remote location, as well as provide staff with such a constant generous and friendly attitude.”
“Been to a number of surf resorts over past 6 years and RLZ wins hands down. Food, staff & accommodation all excellent. Thanks.”
“Best waves I’ve ever surfed. Best Resort. Best food / drinks. Bye Bye Larry.” (9 years old)
“To my dearest family. Thank you to all of you… Jen, Matt and kids for making my stay so wonderful.”
“The product you have is excellent, but it is the way you and your people sell it that makes it so special. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience from Missy fussing over us at Padang, to Joel getting us to the QANTAS desk as they were closing in Jakarta. Your staff are a credit to you – the balance of attention without being in your face is perfect. The food was magnificent. You and Jenny were great hosts, and your kids are truly delightful. Adam and S’man are fabulous blokes and are great assets to you. And the waves, weather, back drops – well words fail us.” – Gerome Van Der Linden
“Cheers RLZ crew for all the great memories.”
“The best surfing trip in Indonesia.”
Shari and I just returned from our trip to RLZ and as anticipated It was simply wonderful. Adam was our guide and did a superb job. What an easy guy to hang with and we were really impressed with his low key demeanor We shared a boat with 3 lovely women and were joined by Layne Beachley which was a bonus.
You do a superb job and I am most grateful to be able to come and enjoy it.
We left our boards there so we will be back soon! This was our third trip within a year!
“First time back since 2009 & it is still the best surf adventure spot in the world. Great destination, great staff, perfect surf. We will be back. Thanks!!!!”
“Really loved the experience. You guys simply get it 100% right. The entire stay from arrival to departure was amazing. Definitely the best surf trip of my life.”
“Had a great time at RLZ the team out there were first class.”
“Just wanted to let you know (and if you can pass it on to Matt, Adam, Chad, Andy & crew) that we all had a bloody fantastic time! Unbelievably good surf, sensational food & a cruisey welcoming & knowledgeable gang running the place. Our surf guide , Adam certainly knew where to head to, to give us a week of perfect surf. We were all so very grateful of Adam’s spot choices and his knowledge of the area. We were all a little flat with having to leave, which says it all. Definitely going to book for next year, but longer.”
“Great. Would come back next year. All staff very good” – Pierre Langenhoven
