Intensive Longboard Coaching
You can expect an intensive week of longboard coaching. Throughout the week together with Ikit and our surf team you will be working on your individual goals, which you’ll set at the beginning of the week. Let’s make it happen!
Learn From The Best
Ikit Agudo is not only a great longboarder but as a qualified surf instructor, she also knows how to explain the secrets of longboarding and help you progress further in your surf journey. Expect plenty of great tips which you can apply there and then!
Daily Video Analysis
We’ll be filming you surfing almost every day. After the surf, we’ll all look at our videos to identify areas of improvement and to track the progress. Video analysis sessions are not only extremely useful but also fun.
We know how hard it is to travel with a longboard. That’s why we have a special high quality log quiver stashed away and only available to the guests joining our Special Longboard Weeks. The boards have been made specially for us by the one and only Victor from Suket.
Surf Theory & Land Drills
Some things are best learnt out of water. The surf theory session will help you understand better where to place yourself to catch the waves, cross-step and finally get to the nose. It is supplemented with land drills to practice on land how to move on the board and build the muscle memory for quicker progression.
We have created a hearty and healthy menu to keep you fueled up throughout the week. You can expect creative breakfasts and lunches, as well as a welcome and a farewell dinner. All included in the package. Vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free options available.
Surfing every day can be exhausting. That’s why we have included in the programme a few restorative yoga sessions to relax your muscles and prepare your body for more surf. Our yoga sessions are led by Alvin, who himself is a surfer, so you can expect the sessions fully tailored to surfers’ needs.
Photos & Drone videos
As part of the package you’ll receive 30 edited photos from the retreat so that you can show the world your longboarding progress! Also, several surf sessions will be filmed with a drone and you get to keep all the footage.
