A Day in the Life

Whether you’re looking to surf as much as possible, unwind by the pool, explore new sights, or a mix of all of the above – we tailor each day to create your ideal surf getaway. A typical day might look something like this…

Imagine waking up to the warm, gentle sunlight filtering through your villa window, the scent of freshly brewed coffee and a delicious breakfast awaiting you.

Your morning begins with a surf session, where our expert guides take you to the best breaks for your surf style and the day’s conditions. After riding the waves, return to your villa for a hearty brunch, prepared just for you. Spend the afternoon lounging by the pool, followed by a private yoga session and massage, or opt for a sunset surf session.

As the sun dips below the horizon, enjoy a frosty beverage before ending your day with an outstanding dinner at one of the area’s finest restaurants. On your private surf retreat, every day is an opportunity to live your dream vacation.

Private retreats are highly customizable. Based on your ideal trip and preferences, we’ll give you our expert recommendations, a menu of options to choose from, and then put it all together into a schedule for the week. (Your getaway can be full of activities, super laidback, or somewhere in between – whatever you want!)

The same goes for what you’d like included in your retreat – you can opt for an all-inclusive getaway and we’ll take care of just about everything, or you can choose to handle some things on your own (ex: more meals out at restaurants).
