This is a fully supported surf adventure with experienced local surfers from the TA Surf Co crew. Agenda driven by the tides, exploration and adventure designed for maximum freedom and creative expression.
This novelty wave is worth getting to know for the amount of surf time you could possible aquire in a week. The one wave every 12 hours comes in with the energy of the high tide, with the whole ocean behind it. The wave takes several hours to move up the Turnagain Arm providing multiple sections of rideable waves within the “one” wave. Some spots are for the extreme, bigger waves, others spots are more gentle, this dynamic phenomena provides options for surf style and skill level.
Spend a week alighing yourself with the moon, tides, oceans, your own breath and pulse. Let the energy of the moon dictate your day, and eat delicious food along the way. Remember how to play, spending the time to recharge with stoke.
