Rote Surf Conscious Retreat

A surf coaching program with a twist!

September 12 - 22, 2019

Rote, Indonesia

This is more than a surf trip.
This is a transformative experience, doing what you love most, surfing.

Life comes in waves. Sometimes the ride is smooth, other times we fall. Enjoying the fall and looking for an always better wave. We learn by doing, failing and learning from our falls. Practicing conscious growth associated with a good physical preparation can be a game changer for your surf and your everyday life.

We have gathered here Top Level surf-coaches and multi-disciplinary instructors in different fields of the body and mind. After 10-days, your surfing will be taken to the next level and our training will impact positively the rest of your surf routine for years to come. You will also connect with incredible people, feel inspired and build new friendships for life.

This program is designed for Intermediate surfers

POWER SURF & YOGA – a continuous flow to make us surf better.

POWER SURF – While most of us may not be familiar with this discipline, it was born and inspired by the practice of ‘GINASTICA NATURAL’. Power Surf is a physical flow that can look like a fusion of capoeira, martial art, and yoga. WQS’ pro surfers have also integrated this practice into their training. (see below Rodrigo giving a private training to Johanne Defay #5 on the WCT)

It has been initiated by Rodrigo Machado and designed for surfers’ to assimilate surf techniques and make them easy for the body and mind to remember so it becomes instinctive while surfing.

YOGA – We will practice yoga daily – exploring different types of yoga practices to relax the body after surfing but also to prepare your body to surf, avoiding injuries and enhancing your flexibility and strength. There will be two different yoga teachers. Andrew, being one of them will also teach the basics of acro yoga.

What is ecstatic dance?

The ecstatic dance will be an exclusive addition to the Rote Conscious Surf Retreat and will be happening on the full moon of the 14th of September. Ecstatic dance is an expression of the body through music. We found this practice to be as medicinal as surfing for the positivity it brings to life. Ecstatic dance is all about freedom and expression through a continuous flow, restorative for the body and mind.

    Surfing Rote in September

    September is usually one of the best time of the year to make sure to have epic conditions while having passed the peak season of July / August. Off-shore winds blows on T-Land all day and crowds are lesser.

    T-Land is a world-class left-hander wave, peeling over 300 meters. This is a perfect wave to practice for intermediate surfers as it gathers all kind of different sections, from long rippable walls that can also be surfed on longboards to barrel sections when condition aligns.

    We will also do missions to the outer islands to surf empty waves if the conditions allow us to do so.
