Surf & fitness coach & and adventure-nut Sophie Everard of the Mad To Live blog is collaborating with the Surf Experience, the original surf & lifestyle company based in the heart of Europe's thriving summer surf scene, Lagos, Portugal, to create the ULTIMATE women's surf, fitness, and adventure retreat this summer.
The week is set to be a heart-racing, unforgettable adventure with a focus on physical and mental wellbeing and learning new skills to take home with you. You will immerse yourself in the vibrant Portuguese surf scene and culture and leave feeling charged, healthy and invigorated by the experience of a lifetime. Mad To Live is about experiencing how empowering surfing and these radical sports are, mentally and physically, and by going at life full of energy and fire, stoked on by the bonds of epic female friendships.
Hosted by fitness and surf coach Sophie Everard (CV includes Another Space, Move Your Frame & The Soho House Group), the retreats are a jam-packed 7 days of surfing with expert tuition, sunset beach yoga sessions, horseback riding and sunrise trail running through the rugged and stunning Roman and Moor-settled Algarvian landscape. Throughout the week enjoy a surf-specific training outdoor fitness class and adrenaline-pumping mountain biking. New for 2018 is a stand-up paddle board adventure to blow your minds! The on-site chef will prepare locally-sourced nutritious meals at the luxurious boutique townhouse accommodation with free gifting from Billabong Womens, KINN living organic cosmetics, Pip & Nut nut butters, The Raw Chocolate Company, Decleor, Imsy Swimwear and MORE!
You will also have the opportunity to kick back and relax, enjoy the Portuguese culture, beaches and beautiful surroundings.
