“The SurfXFit was truly an adventure of a lifetime. From the daily workouts and time in the water to the new friends and great food, this is a trip that I will never forget. By the last day I felt confident on a surfboard as well as stronger and healthier from the variety of activities. Shanti clearly knows her craft and the knowledge that I gained through her instruction will remain with me. She has assembled a fun, knowledgeable and professional team of surf instructors that I was sad to say goodbye to. I am already looking forward to booking another trip soon.”

“Wow, words cannot express how much Shanti’s Surf retreat has motivated me to get moving, try new things, conquer my fears and above all, have FUN! Shanti has a way of getting you excited about being active and getting out of your comfort zone. Not to mention the delicious meals, excursions and surprise activities all far exceeded my expectations. I honestly can’t wait to go back! :)”
