The villa has two floors and allows a maximum occupation of eight people. In the downstairs, there are three bedrooms; two of them with a bunk bed, and two bathrooms. There is also a toilet upstairs and also free Wi-Fi in all the house and cable-TV in the spacious living room.

Program

In general, the retreat will start before breakfast, with a ninety minutes yoga session. After breakfast, you and your surf instructors will leave and drive to the best beach for the prevailing conditions (waves, the wind, and any other conditions) for three to four hours of surf coaching plus extra time on the beach, and you will be brought back to the camp in the afternoon or evening.

Surf classes

The courses are meant for two specific publics:

  • For people that never had a surfing lesson or just had a short experience in surfing so far - beginners level
  • For intermediate level surfers that already have the basic knowledge of surfing and are looking forward to improving skills in paddling out, choosing or catching waves by themselves and develop the basic maneuvers such as trimming, cut-back, and floaters.
