    What an experience.

    Best waves......we enjoyed Hide Aways so much. Beware of Kandui on a small day....

    The boat we had every day made our trip so worth it.
    Sometimes having sessions where it was only us in the water.

    We organised all the admin with Okta where he booked us in fantastic accommodation in Padang. What a TREAT. omw.

    Then we stayed on the island - with Emanual and his family. The local experience is what differentiate this accommodation of all the others. The people are super friendly! The food was fantastic, sometimes less meat than we are use to in South Africa, but we manage to organise with them for more fish etc. All the logistics was fantastic. We paid upfront so that the surf boat etc is included and that made everything so easy for us compare to other people on the island. They suprised us with a great surf guide from Brazil - Carlez, what a guy!! He took great photos of us also! and the fantastic Captian - Ronaldo!! He organised a massive bondfire also for us that made the trip extra special.

    One tip: Spread positive energy and take ownership if something is bothering you, your trip is in your hands and everyone is supper nice and wants to help where they can.

    Hi, I stayed in ebay surf resort for two and half weeks. Can't recommend it enough, brilliant food, clean rooms and really close to the waves. Super easy to arrange the boat to other waves at a fair price. Can't wait to come stay here again next year.

    For my brother and I who were wanting to do a last second land camp on a budget, these guys ticked all of our boxes. After speaking to surfers staying at other land camps over the two weeks we were there we found that eBay playground surf camp was not only 3 times cheaper than most places but others who came around to our camp said they really liked how much space we had at our camp compared to theirs as it sounded like a lot of other camps were more cramped and didn't have as much room to spread out.

    Food was great, Manuel's wife would make us delicious home made food everyday and would even pack us lunches to take with us on our day trips when we hired the boat. (they had just finished building a new boat a few days before we left which is much faster and holds 6 people in it which you can take around to all of the surf spots).

    staff were all super friendly and accomodating, would 100% recommend to anyone wanting to stay in a land camp in this area.
