July 9 – 15, 2018

Take your Surf Vacation to the Next Level!

Are you an experienced surfer who’s ready to take it to the next level and put more “WOW” into your surfing? Do you want to gain confidence in your surf skills, but don’t want to give up the luxury and relaxation of your hard-earned vacation?

If you’re an intermediate or advanced surfer who wants next level instruction, highly specialized training, and all the pampering of a 5-star vacation–Come join us at our Level 2 Surf and Yoga Retreat!



Am I a Level 2 Surfer?

Level 2 surfers have progressed beyond the whitewater and can catch waves in the green water. If you are comfortable dropping into waist-high unbroken waves, then this is the camp for you.

What if I’m more advanced and want pro-level training? 

Jump on board! Our seasoned staff and 3 to 1 student/instructor ratio allows us to tailor the experience to EXACTLY what you need to progress in the waves.

Will I still have time to relax?

Absolutely. As always, our goal is to give you YOUR best vacation ever. You’re in charge!
