Josie Prendergast

For many, especially the Australian longboard lovers, Josie needs no introduction.

Born in the Philippines and raised in Byron Bay, Australia, surfing is in Josie’s blood. Incredibly graceful gliding down the waves, hanging ten with enviable ease, she’s a sheer pleasure to watch. Not only that, Josie is also a pleasure to be around – extremely friendly, knowledgeable and professional – the best possible combo when you want to work on enhancing your longboarding game and build confidence in the water.



Xanadu Surf & Yoga Boutique Retreat

Perched on a hill with spectacular vistas over swaying treetops and across Kuta Bay, our 6-bedroom Xanadu Boutique Resort is for discerning surfers who enjoy the finer things in life. It’s special, to be sure. But it’s more than just a place to snap droolworthy Instagram pics. It’s a peaceful and serene home away from home that’s equal parts luxurious and intimate. And it’s perfect for surfers seeking perfect waves and pampering in paradise.

Why choose this longboard retreat?

However, if you feel like following your own path on a given day during your stay and skip some activities, feel free to do so.

Intensive Longboard Coaching

This week is an all-longboarding affair. And anyone riding boards sub 7-foot need not apply. We’re here for the peeps who know that longboarders have more fun. And we’re making sure that once the week is done and dusted, you come out the other side a smoother, more poised, more self-assured logger.

Learn from the pros

Want to pick the brain of the world’s best longboarders? Now’s your chance. Learn from the best international surfers in an intimate, conversational setting. And listen closely as they spill their most invaluable longboarding secrets. All so you become a more confident surfer in a shorter amount of time.

Video analysis, drills, theory

It might sound intense, but it’s really not. It’s just our way of fitting months of learning into one special week. The video sessions, for example, help you refine your silky style by seeing your surfing from another perspective. As for the drills, they build muscle memory on land so that cross-stepping and noseriding on a wave become second nature.

Log quiver

We know how hard it is to travel with a longboard. That’s why we have a special 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.

Thoughtfully prepared menu

We’re foodies at heart, which means we take the time to prepare thoughtful meals that both fuel and invigorate you for the day ahead. Seasonal produce, freshly picked fruit and sourdough loafs baked in-house. Everything is beautifully presented, healthy and clean. And we can easily cater to a variety of different diets (gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan etc.). Big yum vibes.

Restorative Yoga

Yoga and surfing go together like peanut butter and our sourdough bread. And our resident yogi Alvin will carefully tailor his yoga practices to suit your needs. Bringing awareness both on and off the mat is his main goal. But the soothing of any post-surf sore spots and a heightened sense of wellbeing can also be expected.

Photos & drone videos

You’ll not only leave Lombok with new longboard skills but also with drone video footage and surf photos to brag about all those great waves you had and cross-steps caught on camera. The package includes all the drone videos we shoot throughout the week + 1 day of professional water photography.
