January 23 – 28th, 2024


We are taking all the FUN and FITNESS from our signature retreats and adding in DAILY surf lessons and coaching!

All surf levels welcome! Whether it is your first time holding a board or you are already charging on green waves, our experienced coaches will have you feeling safe and confident on your very first day. Beginners will learn basic surf skills and etiquette. Intermediate/advanced surfers can choose to work on more advanced maneuvers (bottoms turns, cutbacks, floaters, etc) and will absolutely learn to generate more speed, power and flow in their surfing!

Daily core and lower body workouts will compliment and enhance our surf sessions, while restorative yoga will relax and rejuvenate our bodies and mind.

Here in Punta Mita we follow the flow of the ocean. Surf is not just a sport, but a lifestyle! Depending on the tide, we may surf early, or later in the afternoon and even paddle out for a beautiful sunset session. We have 6 awesome uncrowded surf spots to choose from. If the waves are not breaking right out in front, we will take a panga (local boat) to find the best surfing option for our group!

“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.”

Shanti has a way of getting you excited about being active and getting out of your comfort zone.
