SURF & SKATE : 2 days to learn to surf and skate, improve your skills and have fun.

You’ll get all the tips to progress in small groups, with qualified instructors. 1 surf session and 1 skate lesson per day to allow you to enjoy the most of it and to have a chance to improve your skills.
Billabong will provide all equipment (wetsuits, lycras, surfboards, skateboards, helmets...). Just bring your bikini, towel, sunscreen, a cap and some sneackers for skate (you won’t be allowed to skate in slaps !).

YOGA : a perfect warm up before surfing.

Yoga is an ancient Indian discipline considered as “health gymnastics” to harmonise the body and the mind. Different forms have been developed over the years. ASHTANGA YOGA, the latest wave of yoga in the West, is recommended for people with energy to spare. Ideal for surfers, this method is punctuated by salutations to the sun (dynamic postural sequences).

It combines strength and suppleness, stability (exercising one’s bases), concentration and breathing to achieve physical and mental well-being. Ashtanga yoga helps you to recover more quickly so you can easily do several runs over the day; back pains vanish, paddling is smoother, the takeoff lighter and manoeuvres more balanced and extreme. This postural exercise can be undertaken by anyone. Many professional surfers do so every day. Ashtanga yoga is perfect training for the requirements of surfing. Suppleness, energy, force, stability, concentration and breathing. You will surf better and ride the waves with ease.

AFRICAN DANCING: Get lifted into another continent through african dance lessons.

Dance is a real comunication tool in the african culture. It’s a great way to gain self confidence and to express yourself, as well as perfect to move, unwind and release your emotions. Thus, it strengthen the whole body in working more efficiently. There's nothing better like an african dance lesson to get in the right mood before the Billabong Girls Days evening party!
