YOU’RE ON HOLIDAY
Whether you want to focus primarily on surfing, your tan, expanding your cultural horizons, or drinking Mai Tais, we organize everything so you can just relax, smile and enjoy.
Although we provide enough structure to pack your days full of activity, our retreats take a relaxed format and are by no means regimented! We allow you the flexibility to do as much or as little as you want.
A DAY IN PARADISE
A typical day’s itinerary involves waking up, having coffee and breakfast at the retreat before heading out for a surf. Sometimes this means an early rise because we surf based on tide times. After surf, we may have lunch at local warungs or cafes near the surf spots. In the afternoons, we take excursions to beautiful cultural destinations and interesting hotspots around the island. For dinner, feel free to go out on your own or join us at one of the many amazing restaurants we’ve handpicked for our guests.
If you are just learning to surf or want improve your surf technique, our surf retreats provide focused, intensive surf instruction.
Whether you are beginner, intermediate, or an advanced surfer, we split the group based on ability level and tailor each session to your personal objectives.
Beginner surfers will find a supportive environment with our professional surf coaches who understand how much of a challenge learning to surf can be. We strive to provide a fun and relaxing learning environment for anyone who wants to start surfing with us!
