We’ve got some exciting plans in the pipeline, although maybe not at Pipeline just yet! So we’re going to expand our Pop-Up Soul & Surfs as we go. Whether it’s a Luxury Hilltop Retreat in Sri Lanka, a wellbeing festival in Croatia – plus trips to Ireland, Indonesia, Panama and Brazil have been spoken about. Let’s see where the conversation takes us.
First there was Kerala – the place we discovered unridden breaks and, with a handful of others, explored the wave-rich coastline. We try to remember what brought us to Kerala and what inspired us to set up Soul & Surf there. It was a spirit of adventure, a desire to spend time in a beautiful place with an inspiring culture. To surf, to practice yoga, to eat well, to slow down.
Since 2012 we’ve experimented with some ‘Pop-Up’ Soul & Surfs in new locations. We tried the southwest coast of Sri Lanka – now we have our own full-time, beachside retreat there. Plus, we are running a two-week Pop-Up in Sri Lanka’s hill country, to show you the other side of the beautiful, diverse country we fell in love with.
We tried Little Andaman, a far-flung, untouched island in the middle of the Bay of Bengal for a wilder, more adventurous trip.
We have taken people to the desert in Peru, and to the coral reefs of Lombok – and we hosted weekends in Cornwall, which reminded us how good home is, too. We ran Pop-Ups in Portugal for three years and fell in love with the wild Atlantic, the incredible food, the gorgeous landscapes of the Algarve – and have opened up permanently there too.
We’ll be continuing our Pop-Up Soul & Surfs whenever we find the right places to share with you.

Whenever we run a pop-up retreat we write about it too. Here are just a few of our favourites – to get a flavour of where we’ve been so far…
