February takeover

Overview

We are incredibly excited to finally get around to sharing this one with you….. Come and join us on our first adventure to South America, where we will be exploring one of surfing’s most iconic destinations; Chicama, Peru.

We will be in Peru and hosting this surf & yoga Pop-Up from Saturday February 03rd – Saturday March 03rd running 4, week long retreats. 7 nights with 5 days of surfing and yoga in this sublime location.


For a few years now, Franco and Jazmin have been planning to share their own experiences of South America, and have designed an all-inclusive trip to the home of one of the longest left hand waves in the world.

The landscape in Chicama is like being in the moon, soft clay sand colour cliffs– with a great added gift: beautiful waves coming through travelling far away from the Pacific Ocean. We have found a beautiful boutique hotel in the area to provide you with the best location and most comfortable experience while you spend your days enjoying yoga, surf and food.

Having successfully hosted a Pop-Up in Banda Aceh, Sumatra, your hosts Jazmin & Franco will take you to one of their favourite destinations in South America to provide that familiar Soul & Surf experience.


Why Peru?
Peru has a pretty magical background. Located in the epicentre of ancient cultures compared to Egypt and the Maya’s in the north of south America; connected 100% to their environment they build up one of the most amazing empires.

Apart from the never-ending-perfect-shaped left, you can also think of Peru in a bigger picture and jump into an adventure before or after you visit to us. You can explore the Nisa lines, an unexplainable creation of the ancient cultures: you can’t put it together how these guys draw giant hieroglyphics in the ground that can only be seen from a plane!

The fantastic scenery of the Titi Kaka Lake and the Puno’s community that live in floating islands made out of straws, or either in January or March, the majestic Machu Picchu ruins alongside the different villages (forts) that the Incas built around the kingdom.

If surfing one of the longest waves in the world is not enough you can check out the remains of Chan-Chan, an old Moche Indian site and if your legs are not burned out from surfing you can go hiking and climbing in nearby Huaraz, home of the famous Cordillera Blanca, a 6000m high mountain.

Last but not least, one of the highlights of Peru is the food. A blend of different tastes and textures from the Andean country put together in a creative menu a la carte which you will be able to choose from every lunch and dinner.

…what better way to spend your days than immersed in the Pacific Ocean?
