Experience Itinerary

Arrival

Arrive in St Davids to check into your hotel from 14:30, ready to begin your surf and yoga retreat. 

Your tour leader will host your welcome meeting at 18:00, giving you the lowdown on what’s to come over the next few days. Enjoy a welcome drink and tuck into pizza as you get to know your fellow travellers ahead of your surf experience. What’s more, to get you into the surf vibe we’ve got a special film screening all about lives transformed by the sea.

Surf lesson and Yoga session

After a hearty breakfast, you’ll head to surf school to brush up on beach and sea safety. Then, get kitted out into your warm wetsuit, grab your board and you can make your way down to the beach. 

Your surf experience begins as your instructor takes you through the basics of surfing. From how to paddle, how to ‘prone ride’ in control of your board and how to ‘pop’ on dry land, you’ll master the theory before you take the plunge out on the waves.

After your lesson you’ll have free time for lunch and the choice of how to spend the rest of your afternoon. Hang out at the beach with your surfboard, practicing your new skills. Or head back to your hotel, rinse the salt off your skin and head into St Davids to spend your afternoon exploring the UK’s smallest city.

To round off your perfect beach day, join the ground and head to nearby Solva for a clifftop yoga session in front of the setting sun. Stretch out those aching muscles after your first day of surfing, ready to hit the waves again tomorrow.

Surf lesson and Yoga session

Once you’ve refueled with breakfast, head down to the beach for another morning of surfing tuition with your expert instructors. By now you’ll know how to negotiate the surf so it’s straight into the water and time to start catching waves.

After showing off your new skills dropping into waves, you can hang onto your board for the rest of the afternoon to keep shredding those waves, or shed your wetsuit and join the group for a beach clean. This is a chance for your instructors to share their knowledge of coastal wildlife and show you how you can play your part in protecting beautiful coastal destinations like this.

Later in the afternoon, why not join us for another relaxing yoga session out on the cliffs at Solva. Bring your beach weekend to a close by giving those tired muscles one final stretch and enjoying the inhale exhale of fresh salty air. What a perfect way to spend your final evening unwinding after an epic surf experience.

Departure

Enjoy the final morning of your surfing break as you share breakfast with the group, before leaving  your surf and yoga retreat with great memories, and (hopefully) with a new love of surfing.
