The Surf

All year round, Barbados is blessed with so many fun waves on all sides of the island and, luckily, we know how to find all the ones that are not on the map. What’s even better than the crystal clear waters are the near-empty beaches—perfect for beginners learning to surf or dedicated surfers looking to ride some serious waves. On this trip, we’ll take you to some of the best surf spots in the caribbean, with minimal to no crowds everyday.

The Yoga

Whether you’re new to yoga, practice daily, or love meditation, you’ll quickly fall into rhythm in the lush open-air space where we practice in Barbados.

Yoga is offered daily by highly experienced teachers who tailor classes to the needs of the group — the perfect compliment to surfing and a way to connect with yourself and feel your best.
