“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.”
“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.”
“A big thank you for the best holiday, great surf, great food and accommodation and the staff made it extra special.” – Jeff Mercer
“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.”
“Amazing waves, great staff, cant wait to come back!”
“Great waves again 2013, 2014. See you in 2015.”
“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.”
“Absolutly terrific. Great value (I’m pretty picky). Thanks for a great time.” – Rob Medoff
“2nd trip here and so happy to have come back. Best surf Resort we have ever been to. Amazing food, guides, staff. Can’t fault it. We’ll be back.”
“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 brief message to let you know how much we all enjoyed our stay at RLZ. We were lucky enough to surf some excellent Ranga’s & Bommers & various other breaks during our stay. Your resort & staff, from the surf guides, boat crews & resort workers, in my opinion are all first class. You have a great team!!”
“Thanks again for the awesome surfing experience we had at Resort Latitude Zero. Your staff and facilities are definitely world class and provide everyone the opportunity to “charge or relax” at there own pace.”
“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.
“Looking forward to getting back for a 3rd time in August. You guys do it well.”
“U have the best place for families and surf!! We want to go back!!”
“Sick place, sick surf. Ads the surfguide is a legend.”
“Scored – Ranga’s, cheers for the pig dop tip – Adsy.”
“Our guides were the best – could not ask for more – thank you very much.” – Murray Dawbarn
“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.”
As usual, you and your staff were simply terrific. I have tried and now I believe that I have succeeded in hopefully starting the next generation of our group to make it a point to get to RLZ. As I understand it, there will be a group of four from out group traveling next year to RLZ. I believe that the group will come back in 2018. There will probably be a bunch of new guys as we try to keep feeding the stoke.
By the way, if you need testimony regarding Swilly, he is worth it. He’s a professional and does tremendous work. He takes so many shots that one could easily find that one or more memorable shot(s) that may wind up on a wall in a traveler’s home. Swilly is also such a great companion on the boat, my goodness, he is entertainment and creates great friendships.
Matt, if I have a criticism of the total package, I’d say that incredibly, there may be too much of an entree during dinner. Maybe we’re smaller eaters, but with the exquisite ‘pupus” prior to dinner, it seemed at times that we were just overfed (if that’s possible). BTW, I liked the buffet style dinners of the past. Yet, who can complain. You still, in my opinion, have the very best surf destination.
Hey, who knows, I may show up in 2018. Thanks again.
Great Resort and haven’t had service like this in Oz for 20 years. Very accommodating.
“Thanks for everything. To the staff, awesome work and the best place to spend our 40th B Day. The food, drinks, accommodation, staff are second to none and the waves were just as good. See you in another 10 years for the 50th.”
“Cheers RLZ crew for all the great memories.”
“I’ll be back for sure. . . Amazing Holiday. . . Great waves, excellent staff, and the perfect Resort. Cheers Guys”
I just want to say thank you for the awesome trip out to RLZ. To have the imagination yet alone skill and determination to make that place a reality is beyond me. The staff, food, facilities and waves were nothing short of first class. If I were to choose only one camp to go to for the rest of my life, RLZ would be it. In fact, I’ve just decided, it is the only camp I will ever go to.
“Best place on earth. A genuine honour to be apart of what you have created.”
“Great Trip amazing waves with 5 star service. Guides put us into waves everyday, and plenty of cold beer.”
Thanks to RLZ for another incredible trip. We really enjoyed our stay in the main resort last year, but the 10 days in the Bungalows this year was on another level. It just doesn’t get any better than surfing uncrowded waves with 3 of your best mates in a remote paradise in 5 star luxury! Throw in terrific food and great surf guiding /coaching and it creates a surf experience which is the best we’ve ever had.
“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.”
“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
“Thank you to you and your workers for another great stay. I really enjoyed my holiday and I will be back again in January with some friends. Albert and Furry were absolutely fantastic on the boat. They contributed a lot to the very friendly atmosphere on our days out surfing. It would be a very long holiday on the boat if you didn’t have 2 very positive catalysts for a good and relaxing time like these guys. And the shore crew were equally as good. I don’t know how you do your employing but you definitely seem to have a “no dickheads policy”.
The boat trip over to Telo was very memorable. So much so that I bought the Nomad tee shirt as a souvenir. Captain Will’s cool head did a great job in giving us novice sailors a lot of confidence during some pretty rough weather and sea sickness. In addition he was a very attentive host. See you in Jan.”
“Just a quick note that we all had a fantastic time and were all commenting how great the resort, waves and staff were.
Really great experience can’t wait to come back.”
“Thanks guys for a sick trip yewwwwww.”
“This place has it all. My surf guide Adam was so good. The boys and I had a great time. Cheers Lat Zero.”
“There’s a pulse coming!”
I just wanted to email you guys from the NOMAD and all involved to thank you on behalf of the boys for everything and for an amazing trip. All the boys absolutely loved the trip and I’m sure Mark loved it too. It was so well organised, the crew were absolutely awesome in every way possible, food 10/10, fishing, waves, relaxing, it had everything. You guys have nailed it in every way possible. I will be recommending it to all my mates and will be back on it again one day.Thanks Shaun
“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
