“Just a quick email thanking you for arranging the best surf trip Paul and I have ever had, and we have been on many.

From the initial contact with Missy at Padang (she goes over and beyond with looking after the guests) to Joel, Adam and Chad (who have got the resort and waves wired) to the deckies and all staff at the resort including Larry.We had a trip to remember but not to last a lifetime because we will be coming back for sure.

The waves were super fun and we still have tons of waves to explore so we have to come back.”

“Outstanding. Thanks for adapting to high numbers & conference demands.” – Ywain Lawrey

“Had the pleasure of a Resort stay in early September 10, including meeting the legends Matt, Todd and Wal (of course), John and Budgie plus the staff. Hospitality was outstanding – what a great job to build and operate such a resort at the standard you have achieved. The surfing was extensive, with the guides taking us to the ‘right spots’ for the swell conditions, and importantly, crowd avoidance – comfortable boats and well-stocked for the day’s surfing – surfed ’til we dropped’. And the first aid competence and care was exceptional (after my unfortunate reef-experience at Bombers!). Special mention of appreciation to Shane. Definitely a memorable, value-for-money experience.”

Peter Bennett

“Amazing waves, great staff, cant wait to come back!”

“Best surf trip in my life so far. Only thing that could be improved is that I should have stayed longer!! Accommodation, food, staff, boats and surf are all top shelf! Adam our surf guide got us tons of waves and I especially appreciate his coaching me on backside barrel riding.”

Special thanks to Rob and the boys on the boat, they were excellent and made sure we got plenty of waves. Also could you please pass on our thanks to John, Chad, Wal and John(US).”

David J Flynn

“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.”

“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.”

Cassie & Chris

“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.”

Daniel Smith

“Looking forward to getting back for a 3rd time in August. You guys do it well.”

“Very friendly staff, great acommodation & great waves. Chad, Adam & Yeyen excellent, and Larry way cute.” – Nick Pond

Nick Pond

“I have been extremely impressed with how slick this operation is. The thought that has come into little details (colour coded water bottles etc.) shows the years of experience in the area. Before leaving to come on this trip I was asked “which camp are you staying at”. I said Lat Zero Resort. I was told “There are all camps”. You truly combined luxury resort living with the ultimate surf experience. Congratulations. I look forward to returning.”

Paul Tobin

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.

“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.”

Just one word; “Wow!”

We had the pleasure of staying in one of the newly constructed bungalows at Resort Latitude Zero for our summer surf trip. It’s the 3rd time we’ve been to RLZ, and staying in the bungalow just took our trip to a whole ‘nother level.

It’s hard to beat having your own private spot right on the beach, being lulled to sleep by the sound of waves lapping a few metres from your deck.

The room is huge. Never mind having enough space to swing a cat, you could swing a whole cattery in here without a hitch! Super comfy king-sized bed, with another daybed in the one corner, and a big counter area on the opposite side of the room, which houses a mini-bar, plenty of shelf space/storage and a computer desk.

There’s a walk-in wardrobe room with tons of shelf space and hanging space, you’d be hard-pressed to use it all! Also a full length mirror so you can check to see that your boardie/Tshirt/flipflop combo won’t scare anyone!

The bathroom has a counter-top basin and big mirror, with wall recesses both sides, and an under counter shelf, so plenty space for all the vanities. The rain shower is perfect to wash away all the days salt-water.

Really liked the floor lights that came on automatically when you entered the bathroom, so no need to fumble around for light switches in the middle of the night. (there are also proximity sensor lights on the deck, so when you come back in the evenings you can see what’s going on)

Plenty of plug points throughout the room so you can charge everything at once. Personally don’t think you’d ever be able to use them all at once, there’s that many. There’s also in-room wifi available.

Lots of windows to let natural light in, covered by mosquito screens to ensure its just light and fresh air that gets in, and the bugs stay out! Other than the odd ant or two, we had no bugs in our room at all. And that was over a 5 week period. So no need to stress if you a bug-phobe.

The outside deck is awesome, just wished we’d had the opportunity to use it more – but were out surfing every day instead! It’s a lovely private space to chill out. Did manage to sneak in the odd guitar sesh out there just before dinner, with Larry arriving as the first chord was strummed. It’s a great spot to have a late arvo cocktail and watch the sun set.

Or if you’re a morning person – you can see the sun rise right out front. Noticed that a few times when some of the more enthusiastic frothers in our group wanted to do some really early morning starts!

You get the best of both worlds, still part of all the goings on at the resort, but then you can retire to your private space when you want some peace and quiet. Double whammy. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a bungalow stay, and will most definitely be staying in one on our next trip.

Well done to Matt, Wal and the RLZ crew for this great addition to the resort.

Kerry & Garth

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.
