“Just wanted to drop you a quick note of appreciation. Les, myself and Colin had a phenomenal time at the resort. Everything was just perfect! You have a top notch crew there and all three of us had the time of our lives. Thanks for running such a great organisation/resort!”
“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.
Best trip. Our surf guide was energetic, knowledgeable of the surf and a very hard worker. He guided us through all the surf breaks as well as our own surfing and how to improve. Best surf guide you could ever ask for!
“Just a quick email to thank you for this fabulous week we had Eric Hubert and myself. It was just magical, your resort and organization is the best i have ever experienced, and your crew also. Thank you also to Adam and Chad, for their kindness and their professionalism. We still have some wonderful pictures in our head and it is hard to go back to work. We are already planning our return for next year. Take care and see you soon. Merci Beaucoup.” – Frederic Bardinet
“Thanks for a fantastic week of surf, food and fun. No one does it better than you.”
“Cheers RLZ crew for all the great memories.”
“Awesome time, great hospitality from the staff, fulfilled a dream. Shall return.”
“Very relaxed and enjoyable stay. Everything taken care off. Smiles and sense of importance made us feel very special. Could not fault it.”
“Resort and ALL staff were amazing. Adam, Billy, Wal, Yeyen, Gemma and Ampuni especially were fantastic! The surf was great! Food was beautiful, we will be back guaranteed! We all loved it ! Thanks Guys!!!” – Hilly, Davo, Frase & Keebs
“All ready booked next year! Sick waves and amazing crew / food / accommodation. Out of everywhere worldwide surfing this has been the best / most consistent quality yet.”
“I am sorry it has taken six weeks to send you a letter to say thanks for the best holiday a couple of country boys could of asked for. Everything we experienced with Resort Latitude Zero was absolute top shelf Matt, from making the booking with Deb, the management, guides & resort staff were of the highest quality.
We were also really thankful for the hospitality we received in Padang while overnighting there on the way home, I think it was Yen who looked after us, she topped off an amazing two weeks. We loved it and hope to get back to the Telo Islands and in particular your place in a year or two.”
“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 for a great stay recently!
“First time was fantastic. Second time even better. Quality waves, quality food, quality company. We will be back in 2015.
“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 !!!”
“Fantastic” – Toni Duncan
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.
“Absolutely fantastic… Staff, food, accommodation and surfing all exceeded expectations. Loved it!” – Craig Smith
“No complaints. Excellent staff. Excellent time. Thanks.” – Jack Tomlinson
“Cheers Joel and all the crew – home now in the very crisp and chilly south west – 7 days is just no where near long enough.”
“Great waves, great guide, great staff & a fantastic resort. Couldn’t have asked for anything more, well maybe a few more left! Will be back.”
“Great. Would come back next year. All staff very good” – Pierre Langenhoven
“The best holiday I’ve ever experienced. The Resort, the people, the surf, everything was top class. Even Larry was a top dog! I will be venturing back sometime in the future. Cheers.”
“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.”
“After nearly 6 years with World Surfaris, I am finishing up today 04-SEP for a long holiday and to take on a new adventure in life.
It has been an amazing few years in a dream job but I feel like the time has come for a change.
4 weeks of holidays just isn’t enough so I am heading back to Uni to become a teacher so I can have plenty of holidays J
It was a pleasure dealing with you over the years and an even greater pleasure to have had the chance to visit and stay at Resort Lat Zero a few years ago.
Lat Zero is an incredible place by itself but in my eyes your operation on the whole (RLZ/Nomad/Mango) leads the way in the surf tourism industry.
Obviously having experienced guys like yourself and Captain Mark who can see weather/surf conditions change before other operators and swooping in on that is a big advantage over others.
The amount of repeat client bookings and RLZ booking for 2016 is a testament to the operation.”
“This place has it all. My surf guide Adam was so good. The boys and I had a great time. Cheers Lat Zero.”
“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
“Firstly many thanks for kindly looking after myself and Nerea for 10 days over the Easter break, we had an awesome time – you guys are the ultimate professionals. I’d like to book again for next year for myself and Nerea. Just let me know if you have any vacancies and thank you so much again for running such a great operation!”
“Exceptional service from everyone. You couldn’t ask for more – surf guides are legends and experts in hospitality. Special thanks to Joel, Ad’s, Firry and Roi.” – Damian Martin
“It has been a special privilege to enjoy paradise in unrivalled luxury. Thank You to all the attentive staff. A special thanks to chad for showing us a new cocktail.”
“I just wanted to drop a line to say thanks. We all had a great time, scratches, cuts, and broken boards (2 in one session to Pete Brockhoff at Rangas!!) not withstanding.
But everyone at the resort from Joel down to Larry the Wonder Dog contributed to a fantastic stay. Special mention to Sman the man. Great surf guide, nothing was too much trouble, he really did go the extra nautical mile to ensure we had great waves and memories. Even negotiating a pretty heavy inside section at Outside Moneys to take shots just because he likes that angle. He is a real asset to your op, but I’ m sure you already know this.
Anyway we are already lining up for next year!”
“Back Again – not sure at 66 will be able to do this again. Paddling around Indian Ocean with my three sons, a lifetime memory – thanks RLZ.”
“Just a short note to say many thanks to you and all of your fantastic staff at RLZ for putting together one of the best surf trips I’ve experienced,it really was excellent and very much appreciated by me.
The consistent high standards and level of service in and out of the water at every level including location, accommodation, food, guides (Andrew), boats, staff and of course the surf were all very impressive and a real credit to everyone involved at RLZ.
You have created something very special and unique in the surfing world for which you and your wife should justifiably be very proud of and it was an absolute pleasure and privilege for me to experience the results of all your many years of hard work and passion in creating RLZ, so again many thanks for just a great surfing week experience. All the best.”
Thank you all so much for EVERYTHING !!
Arlo, Tully, Eva, Simon & I had the most amazing time & we will miss you all.
The way you connect with the guests make it feel like we belong to your family.
We will be forever grateful.
“Thanks to all the crew once again for a great time had by all in May just gone…..want to do it all again.”
“Best surf trip ever. Surf Guides were excellent and all staff friendly and helpful! Big thanks to Matt, Adam, Sman, Ampuni and Guli and all the Resort staff for a memorable trip.” – David Ellis
“We have just returned from our stint at RLZ and we are all amazed with the place. So much so I was after some package details for next year.”
“3 trips here. Always the best. Best accommodations, staff, surf areas, surf. Matt has a terrific thing going for folks like us. We should be back again.”
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.
