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. Croatia, 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 for a more luxurious retreat – now we have our own retreats there. 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. It’s just for now we are concentrating on our main locations in India, Sri Lanka, and Portugal as we recover from the global pandemic.
