Yoga and surfing go hand in hand; they are both more than a sport, they are ways of life. These practices help you connect more fully to the present moment and ride the wave of life. Yoga helps you develop strength and flexibility on the board and wind down after a great day in the water, or on the beach.
Rejuvenate your spirit, strengthen your connection to the ocean and feel centred in your body after a great class.
Our surf school has been running since 2008, working with hundreds of surfers, ranging from first timers to advanced surfers seeking those big breaks. The philosophy we live by is "the best surfer is the one having the most fun". Our team of qualified surf instructors are on hand to make sure that you have the best surf experience possible during your stay.
Guests are divided into groups according to skills level and experience. Our team of expert surfers use their local knowledge of the nearby spots and the swell conditions and safari to find you the best waves to make sure you’re making the absolute most of your holiday.
Once you’ve found the perfect spot for waves, you’ll have a 2 hour surf lesson, including safety information, warm ups and in and out of the water guiding and tips, and most importantly, fun. After a well earned break for lunch you’re free to polish your new surf skills on your own, under the watchful eyes of your instructors.
