Lofoten Surf Retreat 2024

May 8.- 12.
Limited spots available: 12 pax

Welcome to Surf Camp!

Surrounding the devastatingly beautiful islands of Lofoten, Lofoten Surf Retreat will be hosted by National Coach and shark attack survivor, Shannon Ainslie. We will be staying in Kabelvåg, Lofoten Apartments.

Join our 5 day surf camp in the Lofoten Islands where you will get to surf above the arctic circle in the best waves in Scandinavia.
Lofoten has several surf spots, but the best is Unstad. With its beautiful beach surrounded by high mountains on either side, surfing becomes a lot more exciting as you ride the waves with amazing backdrops on either side of you.
The level of this surf camp is for anyone who is independent and has enough board control in the water to be able to duck dive or turtle roll and catch and ride green/ unbroken waves to the left and to the right.
With 26 years of surf experience and 20 years of coaching experience and with the use of coaching techniques and video analysis I will help and guide each individual surfer to better their technique and learn new skills.
Some topics that could be covered are as follows:
– timing and position
– wave selection
– generating and keeping speed
– learning or improving your turns, such as cutbacks, carves, snaps, floaters, barrels and more

Price for three nights: 

  • 12.550,- per person
