This program is more for experienced surfers or seasoned pros who wish to bust their own moves in the glassy splendor of the Atlantic. If you wish to seek your own waves, or if you are coming in a big group and / or just want the flexibility of having a hire car, they are happy to help you book a rental car and point you in the direction of the best waves. They can also provide a map and directions for getting from the airport to the SaltyWay’s surf house. Your only obligation is that you’re back for the garden barbecue, sunset wine or yoga sessions.
