Improve Your Surfing in Empty Waves.

Surf Coaching Retreats in 2020

Firstly, we want to thank all our 2019 guests who’ve made this dream happen. We have witnessed incredible transformations and lived magical moments where most of us have had the waves of their lives. Our main goal is on making sure our students improve their surfing, letting them with a new set of skills that they can apply to their daily routine. Meanwhile, we consistently work on giving the best of ourselves during each of our retreats. Thank you!

Top Level Surf Coaching & more.

Below are some of the criteria that matter the most to us when planning a trip.

Social Responsibility of Our Hosts

 We only work with responsible surf-operators who act consciously towards the environment, and who are working on bringing a positive change within their community. We choose surf resorts that provide an outstanding level of service, hygiene, and a healthy food diet, using ingredients from the land and from the sea.

Minimum Crowd & Respect of Local Communities

We will try as much as possible to bring you to surf breaks that are less know from the mainstream surf community. We ask our guests to keep it a secret so locals communities can preserve the sustainability of these places as much as possible.

Variety and Quality of Waves

We focus on finding places that have the best waves for the intermediate and the advanced surfers, with equal options of lefts and rights. We plan our schedule around the tides and plan every date carefully to prevent a bad spell from the Ocean.

Top Level Surf Coaching

The surf coaching program is led by Rodrigo Machado, founder of the Power Surf Techniques. Those techniques consists of a technical break ground of fundamental surfing techniques to the ground. It is combined to the use of SmoothStar surf trainers, that tremendously help to unlock surf manoeuvres.

Finally, restorative yoga and therapeutic massages are some other important ingredients to our magical recipe, giving  each surfers’ body the care it needs after 5 to 6 hours spent in the water daily.

Costa Rica

The year 2020 will start in Costa Rica. More precisely in Guanacaste, near Playa Negra, where we have found a simple and beautiful sustainable place to host our retreat. There will be 6 full days of surfing coming together with a solid surf coaching program with Rodrigo Machado. Our crew remains the same and coming all the way from Indonesia to spread the magic.

Simeulue, North Sumatra

(SOLD OUT) Simeulue never disappoints. Especially when staying at Mahi-Mahi Surf Resort during the month of May. The wave out-front (a perfect A-Frame) usually pumps on a daily basis at this time of the year. Its right-hander is a little more mellow, perfect to practice turns and carvings. As for the left, it will challenge your tube riding skills. Many other surf-breaks turn on around the island at this time of the year and makes it ideal for surf coaching in a variety of waves.

1-10 August 

Secret Location in East Nusa Tenggara

We were there just a week ago. It is that much of a precious place that we have now decided to keep the name of the island undisclosed. The name of the place also remains secret and is only communicated through word-of-mouth.  We will be staying at one of the best hideaways on the planet facing a World-Class right hander. Within 30-minutes boat ride can be found up to 8 other waves for different surf levels.

You will be living off the grid for 9-days sleeping in open air accommodations, savouring food that either comes from the garden or from the sea. The month of August also makes it ideal to go on strike missions to some other waves and when they turn on, it is an event better ride than perfect Keramas. We guarantee you a surf-trip of a lifetime while your surfing will go off the roof. More information, right here.

Mentawai islands

For the second year in a row, we’ve opted for the King Millenium boat charters. This time on the KM2 that offers more space for our stretching sessions and quicker to get to the spots. We are aware that boats are not the most eco friendly option and commit to give back to the nature more than we take by supporting active NGOs in the region. Join us in Mentawai, here.

‘The Search’ Surf Charter in Eastern Indo

Empty waves all the way aboard the Royal Fortuna Cruise, a traditional Phinisi schooner. We joined last year one of their trip and were absolutely mesmerised by the waves we found as well as the overall experience onboard. We will be taking a similar route, from the Eastern tip of Sumbawa and reach the Western tip of Sumba 10-days later, anchoring at surf spots that only we know. This isn’t only a once in a lifetime adventure but also a way to improve your surfing radically as Rodrigo Machado will be onboard with us providing us with daily video analysis and power surf techniques. If you are free around these dates, this trip is not to be missed! Find all the information, here.
