Program

Look forward to three days packed with action and fun. The days begin with a morning surf lesson followed by beachside yoga. Use free time to explore by going on a walk around Torrisdale Sands, adventuring up to Varrich Castle, or bodyboarding on the sand dunes. In the evenings, kick back, relax, and socialize with other surfers and yogis over a fresh seafood barbeque and a bonfire on the beach.
