Corporate Events & Outings

Learn to Surf in Just 2 hours!

Need to refresh, inspire, and jumpstart the fun factor for your organization? We gotcha covered. Take the leash off your corporate responsibilities and step onto the sand with your team for a day of surf, sun, and camaraderie. Our corporate team-building clinics are specially designed to boost team unity, productivity, and morale in a fun, challenging, rewarding setting. You won’t believe that spirit and enthusiasm you’ll see erupt from your co-workers when they hit the surf after popping on “the full-body diaper” and hitting the waves!

Not only will your team learn how to surf – they’ll leave with the tools to relate to and support each other more effectively in the workplace. We’ll have even the staunchest grump in the group relaxing, learning, and laughing with the pure stoke that comes with standing for the first time. Throw in our patented team relays & paddle contests, and we guarantee to jumpstart the fun factor by a factor of seventeen thousand million for your crew- and send them home stoked for what comes next.
