“I’m writing to express my thanks to you and all the team at RLZ for a really amazing couple of weeks. We had a great time yet again and I personally would like to express my thanks to all the team at the resort, particularly Joel, Wal, Chad all the boat crews. They did a great job, particularly in the first week, with a large group of young boys with varying surfing abilities in conditions, which delivered the largest swell of the season! An amazing time was had by all, personally my boys had the time of their lives.
The resort is really a credit to you and your team, it runs like clockwork, excellent food and accommodation and of course a great team of dedicated staff.
Well done and thanks.”
“I would also like to say a huuuuuge thank you to you and all your amazing staff. Truly commendable for the incredible effort on making not only ours but everyones stay so enjoyable,
You must be very proud of your staff and the resort you have set up. It has to be one of the most exceptionally run, friendly, adaptable, welcoming and enjoyable resorts we have stayed at. We absolutely loved it all and not to mention scoring rangas for nearly half the time we were there…..
So thank you again Matt from us both to each and everyone of you, the awesome guys Chad, Wal, Adz, Rob, John, Seagull, the smiley fun boat boys – Robin, Julian, Andri, Roi, the lovely reception/massage/hostess/waitress ladies, – Santy, Mani, Rizi, Unity, the wonderful chefs/kitchen guys, housekeeping/maintainance and security and of course not forgetting the one and only Larry!!) Hope to see you again next year!
ps. hope i havnt forgotten anyone…..Brain fuzz, still recovering! Sending a big grateful group hug. All the very best.”
“First class: Resort, Staff, guides, service, food = “EVERYTHING” The ultimate surfing adventure for a father and his sons. Thank You.”
“Best place I want come back next holiday.”
Well, we’re all settling back into the work grind, but the stoke will last a lifetime. Just wanted to pass on a huge thanks for our amazing stay at RLZ. Our expectations were high before we arrived, but we were absolutely blown away by the setup – and as a bonus, the surf pumped!
The resort is amazing, and Wal, Chad and all the staff did everything possible to keep the stoke level high – fantastic. You guys have put together a great place and team to ensure the perfect surf trip. Also, the two surf guides we had – Smanny and Seagull -these guys are absolute legends. So generous with their time and advice, giving us all great tips on each spot, calling us into waves well beyond our comfort level and genuinely stoked to see us catching waves – they did everything possible to get us into the best waves all day every day, nothing was a problem. Just great friendly guys who were a pleasure to go surfing with. And with Firry and Roi on board, it was good banter and laughs all day. Legends.
Best surf trip ever? Definitely – 10 days x 6 hours a day x nil crowds x perfect waves = pure stoke. Once again, thanks heaps. Stay surfing.
“To my dearest family, thank you to all of you… Jen (Goog), Matt, Elke, Indi, Kurt, Mika and Larry for making my stay so wonderful.
Love you to bits. Cath (Aunt ChaCha) xxx”
“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.”
“Matt & Jenny, Just dropping a line to say..Thankyou to Wal, Shane, Chad & all your amazing staff. Our 2 week stay was truely wonderful, the staff, service and resort is everything we could have asked for, staying at your place in Padang..meeting Ma and her amazing cooking..was a great way to finish off. So Thanks again, hopefully we can save for a return journey…it has inspired our “old boys” to keep surfing.” – The Denmark Couples.
“First Class yet again. Best set up on the planet. Thanks for a great week.”
“Best surf trip. Accommodation and staff were great. Especially Yeyen and Adam. I always felt welcome and comfortable after the first day.” – Blenn Fujimoto
“To all the Resort Latitude Zero crew, I would like to say thank you for one of the best holidays I have ever experienced. Excellent Resort facilities, fantastic food, friendly staff and your pick of perfect and uncrowded waves to surf until you can surf no more (til the next day anyway). It all adds up to a surfers utopia. I will definitely be seeing you all again sooner rather than later.” – Bevan Talbot
“Just got back from my 5th trip today, Matt & Jen never disappoint.”
“Best place on earth.”
“Definitely the ultimate surfing experiences. Plenty of waves, relaxation, and fun was had. Supported by a world class crew, food, and facilities.”
“Hard to beat perfection! See you next year…YEW!” – Griffen
“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
“Finally home after another awesome trip with you guys. Once again the boys and I can’t thank you and all the staff enough for looking after us every step of the way .
A special thanks to Albert and Firry who found us waves every day and kept us surfing.
If you could send me what’s slots are available for 2016 and 2017 for the resort and for the Mangalui it would be appreciated.”
“Just back from second trip to Resort Latitude Zero with my 14 year old son and his mate. Again, a perfect trip. Food excellent and wave hunting second to none. Can’t wait to get back.” – Reaymond Mcguinness
Wow, what a great trip, hats off to all of you on providing a great place, empty waves and good times all round.
I got back a week ago and showed some mates photos of resort and waves, needless to say the call is in for a trip next year.
“Amazing environment & people. We will be back!! Loved it.”
“Awesome as always. . . Yewwww.”
“Everything about the holiday was great! We’re already planning to do it again. Big tick for everybody including Yen who took Neale and myself on a shopping/dining tour of Padang on the day we had to spend there. Totally stoked with everything!!”
“Thanks for all your help in arranging our trip. It was absolutely first class the whole way and all the boys had a fantastic time. Special thanks to Seagull and S man who were great guys. The attention to detail and overall quality of the whole package (staff, resort, boats, food etc. etc) will make it impossible to go anywhere else, so look forward to returning in 2 years time!!”
“I just thought I would give you some feedback. The new plane service is excellent. According to Tim Cooper (who is also a pilot) the pilots were professional and thorough/no shortcuts.
The staff and management were great! Wal runs things very smoothly and Indo staff always happy and helpful. A good vibe. Special mention goes to Andrew our surf guide. He is a great guy, always enthusiastic, always willing to help us or the Indos in order to give us a good experience. Shared his knowledge on the winds and islands and even gave tips to some of the boys on ideas for surfboards that might benefit them in the future. Keep him!
Only one improvement that I can think of and that would be some specially designed back support cushioning for the boats. And by the way Room 1 was great. Cheers.”
“Great waves again 2013, 2014. See you in 2015.”
“U have the best place for families and surf!! We want to go back!!”
Happy New Year.We arrived back a few days before Xmas from our 10-day trip to Latitude Zero. Connor and I had a great time. The swell held up and we had some memorable sessions at both Monkey’s and Rangers.Our sail back on the Nomad to Padang was really fun. We’ve had dinner on the upper deck, calm seas and clear weather made for a relaxing trip. Pic attached.We look forward to seeing you again in 2017.Could you please send me Wal/John’s email address.Regards,
“To the staff at RLZ thanks for another memorable trip to your region. We are always impressed as to the efforts you all make to get us into the surf, within an hour of our arrival we were in the water and an hour before we boarded the plane at Telos we were in the water also. ”ITS ALL GOOD” Thanks again Pete Coulson and crew from Coffs.” – Peter Coulson
“Hi Wal, Shane, and Resort crew. Thanks heaps for a great holiday, what an experience. From the time we got to Padang and then left Padang on the way out all we had to do was surf and enjoy the ride, every thing else was done for us by Resort Latitude Zero. We had an awsome time at the Resort and had the best waves I have ever ridden in my life. The snacks at the end of the day were awsome whilst we were watching the days surfing photos on the flat screen and the food was first class without a doubt. What a place to have a surf trip, see you next time (definitely).” – Gavin White
“Words can’t explain the joy and fun I have had.” – Mathew Henderson
Thank you for an amazing trip for our crew over the past week at RLZ. You’ve done an outstanding job on all of the ‘little’ details which make the experience at RLZ outstanding. The entire crew of staff were very friendly and attentive to all of our needs and a special mention to Jack our Surf Guide who managed to put us into the right spot each day to cater to our surfing ability. We joked that any more than 4 in the break was a crowd and rarely in the 7 days did we surf with any other crew than the 4 on our boat. I’ve attached some photos which you can feel free to use as you wish. We took a drone on the trip and got some incredible footage of RLZ and the surrounding surf breaks. We’ll definitely be back ! Thanks again.
“Thanks Joely, Chad, Ads, and all the lads for another awesome trip. Yewwwwwww!”
“Thanks to all the crew once again for a great time had by all in May just gone…..want to do it all again.”
“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”
“Been to Bali, Lombok, Costa Rica, Mexico, Phonpei. Nothing compares. We got great waves every single day (10 days). Uncrowded perfection. At 56 yrs old, the BEST SESSION of my life!!!
“No complaints. Excellent staff. Excellent time. Thanks.” – Jack Tomlinson
Come on a journey aboard the fully-equipped 60’ timber sloop Nomad which frequents some of the finest lefts and rights Indonesia has to offer. The Nomad is all about surfing, adventure and sharing the stoke.
She is a magnificent 84 foot timber sloop, custom built for the sole purpose of searching for waves.
