It's tricky to sum up everything that this course covers in a name. What does 'Surf Fit' actually mean and is it the right programme for you?
Essentially, if you've ever thought that you'd like to feel more confident in the sea and be prepared physically and mentally for your next surf session (even if it's slightly out of your comfort zone) then Surf Fit is definitely for you. It's all about equipping you with the skills, techniques and mindset to make you more comfortable in the ocean environment, regardless of what level you are starting out at. Being comfortable in the sea allows you to focus on your surfing (or whatever ocean sport you practice) and unlock your potential.
Our Surf Fit retreats are essentially a highly professional course in ocean skills which is accessible to anyone. The skills that you'll learn will stay with you for life too, so it's a real investment. We don't really like the word 'retreat', but again, it's hard to call it anything else. You will be submerged in surfing, fitness, surf culture, yoga, beautiful environment, lovely people, amazing food and so much more. It really is an experience of a lifetime.
Here's some feedback from UK surfer Wayne "I was fortunate to spend a week with the team in Nazare. It was awesome. To have the opportunity to surf good waves, whilst learning from professionals how to train to maintain surfing fitness was amazing. At the end of the week, I felt so much better in the water, and the skills that the guys taught will be practiced at home, to keep me in shape for when there are waves.Cotty, Blakey and Becky were so friendly and helpful with every aspect of surfing fitness. And the the food provided was outstanding. Hope to see you again soon guys"!
We truly believe that this is one of the best ocean training/surf fitness courses in the world in one of the most stunning locations in the world. Our trainers are at the very top of their game, yet without ego and friendly and accessible.
Our retreats are usually mixed in gender and ability, although we do try to put real elite athletes in their own retreats.
We really hope that you will join us soon. You can find out more feedback here and read more about our next retreat in Portugal in April here
