Each trips itinerary is flexible as we’re continually at the mercy of the earth’s swell conditions. Generally, we undertake daily Surfaris to find the best waves for shredding with the option of surfing from first light on a daily basis.
Sometimes we split the group to accommodate beginners and experienced riders to ensure everyone gets the most from their holiday. After each session we either chill at the beach or grab food at the beach cafes or our bodyboard lodge. Then we head out for afternoon or evening sessions which usually conclude under an epic sunset. You don’t have to attend every session though. It’s your holiday, the trip is totally yours.
We take videos and photographs for analysis to help improve your riding double fast. Each evening we review the footage (when conditions have been suitable) and give feedback on how you’ve mastered the moves you’ve been taught – or not . . . all our feedback is constructive and helps riders improve their technique. We also see some quality wipe-outs and facial expressions as you score the most fun waves the area has to offer. Our analysis sessions are fun as well as informative!
The last day is departure day and generally there will be no bodyboarding on that day. We guarantee an improvement in your bodyboarding skills as well as some amazing memories
