Thanks for a great stay recently!

Shannon Frawley

“Thanks so very much for looking after me while I was there & thank Smenny, Christina, Albert & all the boys loading the boat, John, Rob, Resi & Marni & the cooks.

I had such an amazing time all the staff are absolutely amazing the place is so well organised it was a breeze. Can you please let me know if there are any out of season prices for the new lodge because I would like to take my family. I will definitely be back with my family & friends.

I’ll be telling everyone about your resort it’s the best surf holiday ever.”

Blake Potts

“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!!”

Jeff

“Thanks for looking after us last week. Its been great going through the photos and reliving what an amazing week it was.”

Mike Neal

“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.”

Edwin Zemancheff

“Sick place, sick surf. Ads the surfguide is a legend.”

Robert Oscroft     

“It was a pleasure meeting you and staying at your beautiful resort. A quick note just to thank you and your team for making the trip so special and especially for the prompt arrangements in helping us get back to Perth after the delay. Big thanks to the team at Padang and the Resort for that! They were great.
I will also get back to you on the matter of dates for Ryder and myself. I appreciate time is limited and running out fast.”

Deryck Ethelston

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.

Andrew Myors

“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.”

Chris Lowe

“Absolutely Sensational!” – Graham Judd

Graham Judd

“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!!”

Chris Bingemann

“Thanks guys for a sick trip yewwwwww.”

Will Antonie

“Wonderful!! We all loved everyday from Pete surfing to the kids and I playing back at the Resort. Thanks and see you soon.”

The Reed Family

“Cheers RLZ crew for all the great memories.”

Doug Baird

“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

Just wanted to say thanks to you and your team for another fantastic trip to Resort Latitude Zero. I am absolutely stuffed this week in a very happy surfed out way. The bungalows concept is a great success congratulations and the build quality is first class. Thanks again for another great RLZ holiday.

“Keep going the same way. Our holiday has been so full with joy & adventure firsts. Happy kids, happy husband, happy family. Thank You. x x x”

Kieran Meaney


“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.”

Richard Wertheimer

“Sick place, sick surf. Ads the surf guide is a legend. Coming back for SURE.”

“Just letting you know Swilly’s photos made it home OK. I have made two backups and also given most of the guys their images.

Thanks again for sharing a great couple of weeks with us and for the awesome photos. All of us are in agreement that you were a key factor in making the trip so amazing. I hope you are having as much fun this seek and that all your travels coming up go smoothly.”

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,

Robert Duke

“Sensational!! Excellent place, people, waves & food. Living the dream!”

Mark Fricker

Best surf trip for all around experience I have been on and I surf internationally yearly. Incredible staff, everyone was attentive and knew my name on Day 2.

Cameron St.Clair

Firstly, thanks again for an awesome week at your resort.  It was great for our group.  The waves in the first half of the week were great for us and despite predictions of little action on the last two days; we had great sessions Thursday and Friday too.

Secondly, I’d just like to say how good Chris our guide was. He picked up the nuances of wind, tides and surf and got us to good spots consistently.

Thirdly, the food this year seemed have gone up a notch for which we were grateful.

Fourthly, the bungalow concept was awesome.  We all loved it, especially when one of our boats was the only one at a break. I think we would all be interested in upgrading next year!

Thanks again and looking forward to visiting RLZ again

“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!”

David Cromarty

“We all had a magic time. Thanks Matt, Chad & all the people for looking after us.”

The Tomaszuk Family

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.

Robert Brown

Thanks for such a wonderful holiday!

The new bungalows have taken the whole Resort Latitude Zero experience to a new level: they’re beautiful and luxurious. We loved the privacy, the views and the little touches like the essential oils.

Keep up the good work!

Gillianne & Ian Tedder

“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

Reaymond Mcguinness

“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.”

David Michel

“As mentioned in Padang it would be appreciated if Mark could be our skipper on the above 2014 trip.  So far with Mark on the 52 days on the Mango he has found us waves on everyday. If I add my Resort Latitude Zero stay u guys have a 100% wave finding record over 70 days. Want more could one ask for. Awesome food – that again is 5 star.”

Tony Nicod

“Thanks again for another awesome trip, in particular to Joel for providing us with every opportunity for waves and fun times and for tolerating some of our less desirable antics. The level of service provided by you and all of your staff from housekeeping and F & B staff through to the to the surf guides is what makes the trip and we are genuinely appreciative. Thanks Matt for creating a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet our heroes, its something we will cherish forever.”
