“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.”
“Amazing Resort. Love it. Love Larry. Best waves, awesome animals would love to come back.”
“Just wanted to say another thank you for our week on your island. The whole family had a blast and are talking about coming back next year already!! Had a few “fun” moments getting home but I guess these just make the memories and stories more exciting.
A credit to you and your staff for the hospitality shown and we won’t hesitate to recommend Latitude Zero to all our friends.”
“What a trip!! Thanks to all for an amazing experience. Great venue, great waves & great people. Special thanks to Adam. Legend Guide.”
“The only place to be this place rocks! Surf, sand, soul!”
“We had the most incredible trip! Thanks so much for all you help and the RLZ team defiantly have to get back there soon.”
“To my dearest family. Thank you to all of you… Jen, Matt and kids for making my stay so wonderful.”
“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
“Hard to beat perfection! See you next year…YEW!” – Griffen
“This is the best place ever to have my 16th birthday. Thanks a lot to everybody for making it special and memorable.”
“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!!”
“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.”
“Absolutely Sensational!” – Graham Judd
Just wanted to say what a fantastic trip I had even though we were a bit unlucky with the swell this time. Matt has put a fantastic team of people together and created a really positive and cheerful vibe at the resort. As for Andy (Sman), the guy is just a really nice bloke – a great guide and a great guy – helpful, happy and always positive and encouraging. As you can see my third trip to RLZ was as good as the first!
“Amazing waves, great staff, cant wait to come back!”
“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.”
“This is an awesome spot run by surfers for surfers of all ages. Been twice would kill for a third. Of all my trips this place is my favourite. Surfed my brains out ate like a horse and came back 4 kilos lighter & stronger both times. Nothing uncommon about 3 to 4 sessions a day from sunrise to sunset everyday. Highly recommend.”
“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
“I just wanted to pass on my thanks for the great week our group had at RLZ.
Really had a great time and thought everything about the resort (staff, food, accomodation, boat …everything) and the experience was fantastic!! In particular, Adam our guide was excellent – he really went the extra mile in searching for and delivering good conditions…..and thanks again for the great week.”
“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”
“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!”
We had a great time @ RLZ 28 April through 8 May. Should you have any need to fill spots in the future keep me on the ready to return list.”
“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.”
“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.
“Super impressed will be back. Adam was an awesome guide.”
“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.”
“Once again thanks to all the crew at Resort Latitude Zero for another great trip. The staff get better, facilities improve and the waves, if possible, get better. Please pass on our thanks to all the team and your family!”
“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.”
“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.”
“No complaints. Excellent staff. Excellent time. Thanks.” – Jack Tomlinson
“Just thought I would write to let you know that we tried another Sumatran location in November and sincerly wished we had come back to you guys. It is not a patch on your service and quality of product. Food was *&%$ resort in a bad state of repair Indonesian staff slack to name but a few problems. The only positive thing is their location. I love to hear compliments on my own service in our business so I though it only fitting that i let you know how good your product is. Hope to see you late next year if finances and circumstances allow. Please pass my comments onto Wal, Rob and all the crew.”
“Wonderful!! We all loved everyday from Pete surfing to the kids and I playing back at the Resort. Thanks and see you soon.”
“Thanks guys for a sick trip yewwwwww.”
“Great Trip amazing waves with 5 star service. Guides put us into waves everyday, and plenty of cold beer.”
