At Mind Body Soul ~ Surf Bali we strive to incorporate sustainable options to lower our carbon footprint whenever possible. We look to optimize our services to align with a greener approach, caring for the delicate environment that gives us so much in return. We select partners that share similar values and philosophies.
We passionately believe in the development of Balinese owned businesses to strengthen the local communities. Mind Body Soul and surf school partner, Double D, are the only locally owned surf school and retreat operating in Bali today. All others are foreign owned. We hope more Balinese will begin to reap the rewards of their land, beaches and tourism in smartly planned longterm projects.
We strongly believe in giving back to the community. The only way to enjoy success is to share it.
