“Been to Bali, Lombok, Costa Rica, Mexico, Phonpei. Nothing compares. We got great waves every single day (10 days). Uncrowded perfection. At 56 years old, the BEST SESSIONS of my life !!!”

“It is now Friday afternoon in Santa Monica. I returned late Monday night after I decided to skip my layover in Taipei… feeling blissful when I got back to LA because of a wonderful vacation.

We’ve had waves here all week. Decent for Malibu, which means chest high on the sets, super crowded, but fun little peelers. Nothing like the head high to double overhead macking perfection that we experienced in the Telo Islands!

I have traveled the world and surfed many of the world-class breaks. Upon reflection, this was the greatest surf trip ever, not only because of the epic waves, but because of the people and the magical environment in which we thrived. It was great to meet each and every one of you, mostly lawyers, but all of you have indeed the Spirit of a surfing lawyer! Memories will be forever etched in my mind about that wonderful week at latitude zero with latitude Larry! I was particularly inspired by our awards dinner in the wonderful songs and speeches made mostly by barristers.

 

From the bottom of my heart, thank each and every one of you for making this surf journey so incredibly special! After all, all of us surfers are joined by one ocean!”

David Olan

“After multiple trips the “Good Ship RLZ” and all who sail her never cease to impress! This trip was an absolute cracker in every way. We surfed until we couldn’t surf anymore! My smiling muscles are as sore as my arms!

I’ve said it before but I honestly can’t imagine how you could do it any better. Surfing the way it should be!! Well done.”

Steve Vallance

“Very relaxed and enjoyable stay. Everything taken care off. Smiles and sense of importance made us feel very special. Could not fault it.”

Nick Pulver

“Had a great time at RLZ the team out there were first class.”

 

David Schonell

“Hope you guys are well! Thanks heaps for putting Grant & I up and looking after us so well at the resort!! We had an awesome time and even though we didn’t plan on staying a few extra days it was great to really experience Resort Latitude Zero. The Resort is incredible & the food blew me away. Cracker menu Wal! The staff & surf guides were all really helpful as well. It was never too much trouble for Wal, Ferrie, Gema to drive us either North or South looking for waves in the conditions. The general facilities are amazing and the gym and games area tops it off. Cheers. Kind Regards.” – Justin Scanlan

“I have been trying to come up with a way to explain my stay at the greatest place on earth and the words just escape me every time I sit and start typing. I will say a little bit but I will have to come back later because when I think about it I just want to be at Lat-zero right now and one knows he needs to work and get things done. I’m having writers block and i’m not a writer. This place rocks the dunia out of anywhere I have ever surfed and I only touched like 4 of the main waves and was blown away. I have driven more miles than I care to say in search of the perfect waves or even a wave but there is no need for that ever again. My next trip will be Latitude Zero to continue to drink fresh young coconuts, read amazing book, have the best food in Indonesia, swim in the most epic water, dance in the moonlight on the pristine untouched beach, hang with world class surfers and get coached by them too in a way, do the dolphin swim with the cutest underwater child ever, watch the other amazing water children swim and dance to the beat of the island. ETC like I said I have writers block but you get the gist and I didn’t ever really say anything about the surf which I will say was amazing 10 days out of 11 the 11th day I was just too tired. ha.. Hope all who choose to journey here find time to breath again like I did. Thank you all at Latitude Zero my life is 10X’s better that it has ever been. I will be back with coconut openers. Aloha A hui you” – Shaylan Allmen

“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!”

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.”

“Just thought I would let you know I had an awesome trip to Latitude. 5 stars all the way. I had one of the best surf trips I have ever had and we didn’t even score a solid swell ! I take my hat to you and the team. You have set up an amazing operation that is decadence in Indo. We were looked after incredibly by the entire staff and in particular Ads, Joel, Ferry and Roy who are all legends. Thanks again mate – keep up the good work.” – Dooma

“Mat and Jenny, thanks for making our stay the best holiday we have ever had, the freshie boys can’t stop talking about the place and the great wave’s, have been showing off the DVD to everyone you might need a bigger resort next year to fit in the rest off the boys, say hi to Shane, Chad and the staff for me and look forward to catching up next year.” – Glen Kelly

Glen Kelly

“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 :-)”

“Just a quick email to say that we had a great trip to Lat Zero. We scored some real fun waves and hopefully we’ll get back there in the next year or two.”

Adam Price

“Just wanted to thank you and all your staff for an incredible week at RLZ. Ive done a lot of Indo surf travel but you are providing something way above most operators. Matt had the week of his life and progressed his surfing about three years! We would love to come back next year for an 11 day trip. Could you get the office to let me know any availability there might be for two of us- preferably around April/May or October.”
