Special Longboard Week

Hang (ten) with the world’s best longboarders

Ever watched a longboarder slide gracefully across a wave and thought “Damn… that looks cool as heck”? We sure have. So we decided to invite some of the best international longboarders in the world to run our retreats. Now you can cruise and cross-step like your logging heroes AND learn directly from the pros in one feedback-packed week. To sum it up, it’s kinda like a cheat code for your longboarding. And it’s perfect for anyone wanting to fit months of learning into 7 transformational days. Side effects include: salty hair and sun-kissed skin.

Your 2023/2024 longboard week programme

To say we’re stoked to connect you with the world’s best longboarders is an understatement. Guys and gals, this is going to be an epic experience.

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 our Special Longboarding Week experience?

We’ve curated our experiences in collab with past guests to ensure you get the most out of your stay. In saying that, we’re totally flexible too. Follow the programme or skip activities and do your own thing… it’s your holiday!

Intensive longboarding retreat

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 male and female longboarders? Now’s your chance. Learn from the pros 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.

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. Big yum vibes.

Yoga sessions

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.
