Why learn from Iain Campbell?

This is your chance to learn from the best. Iain Campbell is a pro bodyboarder from Durban, South Africa who lives and breathes bodyboarding. He has competed in Hawaii, South America, Australia, Europe and South Africa, achieved 1 world title, 6 world tour event wins and 21 podiums.

Crowned the 2017 APB World Tour champion, Iain Campbell is one of the most decorated bodyboarders in the world, a fantastic coach, and an all round awesome guy. He is an unbelievable prone and drop knee rider so can help you equally in each discipline. He has the biggest YouTube channel of any pro-bodyboarder, and has created a hugely valuable resource for bodyboarders all over the world. There is no one better to learn from, and spend time in the water with. This is the opportunity of a lifetime.

“Iain’s coaching helped me refine my riding, I have been bodyboarding for over 30 years and he gave me some tips in the first 30 minutes of our session that made me change my approach, I can’t credit him enough” – Bjorn Storey, multiple time British Champion – after our Iain Campbell coaching weekend.

Why join the Iain Campbell Bodyboard Retreat Nusa Lembongan?

Nusa Lembongan is just as you’ve dreamt it would be, perfect white sand, thatched beach umbrellas and crystal-clear water. A tropical island paradise just a short hop from Bali, Nusa Lembongan is all about slow living, beach sunsets, rich culture and incredible food. Imagine Bali, then roll the clock back 30 years, wake up to the chorus of cockerels, walk barefoot and get to know the locals. Take Nusa Lembongan at your own pace, snorkel, explore, hike, and experience the best of Island life and ocean culture.

Nusa Lembongan is home to some of the best waves on the planet, so we’ve been organising trips here for 15 years. Add Iain Campbell into the mix and it’s suddenly the bodyboarding equivalent of a tennis lesson from Roger Federer. You’ll get to bodyboard alongside Iain and witness him shred in a way that’s leagues above anyone you’ve ever seen. You’ll receive top-level coaching and benefit from Iain’s years on the world tour. You’ll get to hang out with Iain, pick his brains, and learn about his victories and life on the tour. Hear the stories from his victory at Pipeline in Hawaii, from South Africa, and the World Tour, and get to know one of the world’s best bodyboarders in the flesh. It’s fair to say that this is the ultimate tropical bodyboarding retreat.

What to expect?

Expect to be inspired, stoked to the max, and to have your love of the sport skyrocket. You’ll be bodyboarding alongside Iain during the day, receiving world-class coaching and catching the best waves Nusa Lembongan has to offer.

For us the real draw to this trip is stepping coffee in hand on to a boat moored just metres from your room. Sailing out to find a perfect wave, and jumping into the warm turquoise waters at the precise time you’d normally be commuting to work is an experience you’ll never forget!

We’ll take care of everything both on and off the water, so you can focus on catching waves, soaking up Iain’s coaching and experiencing everything Nusa Lembongan has to offer. We have included plenty of time for you to experience Nusa Lembongan however you wish, be it by snorkelling in pristine water teeming with colourful tropical fish and shimmering coral reefs, visiting beautiful Hindu temples, hiking around the island, watching epic sunsets or touring the wide array of incredible restaurants on the island.

Who is this trip for?

Iain Campbell Bodyboard Retreat Nusa Lembongan has been designed for intermediate and advanced bodyboarders only. Sorry but this is not a trip for newbies.

If you’re an experienced rider who wants to finesse specific techniques, you’ll gain a lot from a week of Iain’s focused instruction and video analysis. Whether you’re wanting to work on your prone or drop knee techniques, Iain will have you covered, he’s one of the best in the world in both areas.

Every waking minute of the retreat will revolve around you, and your fellow guests. Iain will ensure that everyone has a progression pathway mapped out, and is getting personalised coaching and focused video analysis to help them reach their goals. Sprinkle in lots of fun, friendship and pro-shredder support along the way, and you have a recipe for one of the best weeks of your life.

Add to this the empty line up of perfect waves as the final surfers paddle in and it’s a sight to behold. It’s the perfect spot to reflect on a day of epic bodyboarding and is an unofficial meeting point for all the visiting surfers and divers that have found themselves on this beautiful island. You will remember these moments for the rest of your days. As darkness falls, it’s time for a stroll into the village or stay nearby for a well-earned supper with the crew. Evenings are super chill in Lembo’ and the perfect way to relax, refuel and recharge after a day in the waves.
