The Surf


it’s not just a surf camp.
it’s not just a yoga retreat.
it’s a sunshinestories retreat.

Every morning we start the day with a yoga session followed by a surf. Surf & Yoga is a magic combination in so many ways. To surf is to play; we get to have fun and move our body at the same time. Yoga is a great way to prepare for the surf and to feel grounded and in tune with our bodies.

We’re not only gonna teach you how to surf, we’re gonna give you the tools to become a good surfer. With Sunshinestories surf methodology you’ll get individualized surf lessons from surf instructors with years of experience. Many technical aspects of surfing can initially feel contradictory, so our surf philosophy is that good instruction is the key to improve your surfing.

We want to create clarity in the way we teach, so each lesson is linked in a fluid way to encourage learning. Our vision is to help you catch good waves, but above all, we hope you will leave with the tools to continue your development!

Because surfing is very much based on learning through experience, it is a challenge as a surf instructor is to convey one’s knowledge to others. Therefore, we supplement practical lessons with theory and analysis on the big screen and blackboards. Each day we have a theory lesson that covers all the aspects of surfing including: wave forecasts, surfboard design, surfing ethics and safety. And, almost every lesson in the water is filmed giving us a great tool to show you exactly how you surf and what you need to do to improve.

At the end of your stay you will receive the footage of your surf. And, because we want to create a lasting relationship with our guests, your development is logged in our Surfer’s Profile so that the next time you visit we can continue were we left off.
