WE ARE CONNECTED BY A PASSION FOR PROGRESSION.
We believe that training the brain is just as important as training the body.
Designed for intermediate female surfers over 30, this program demystifies the learning process so that you
become a more confident wave rider in a variety of conditions.You’ll begin by practicing new maneuvers on land using a surf skate.
Then, through constant repetition, you’ll quickly develop the muscle
memory necessary for a successful transition to the water. In true
Koolscty style, this all takes place in comfortable and encouraging
environment.When it’s all said and done, we strongly believe that anyone can take their surfing abilities to the next level.

Land practice is essential to open the whole field for surfing and to develop good movement habits. With the help of surf skate we can simulate surfing on concrete. Through this methodology, it is easier to learn and get your movements more intuitive for a better performance while surfing.
With the focus on organic whole foods, the meals will be mostly but not exclusively plant-based, cooked simply and with flavors from all over the world.
Our yoga classes are designed to lead you through a series of movements to rediscover your natural body mobility. Because we believe that our breath is essential to connect with our subconscious, we will help you develop awareness on those muscles which will make you understand and control reactions connected with surfing.
