"There is no better way than learning to go with the 'flow' than through surfing. The ocean requires you to tune in to her circumstances. She challenges you, plays with your limits, checks your emotions and brings strength & tranquility.  By reflecting on that you become aware of who you are and what you really want and need in your life.

Surf Therapy Travel loves its tribes!

At Surf Therapy Travel we work with groups of up to 12 people during any retreat. This way you get the attention you need and it makes you able to get as much out of the week-long retreat as possible. Together we become the little 'surf tribe' that gives you the loving attention and support to work on your (body)awareness. Personal development was never this much fun!

If you book surf lessons then you lie on a surfboard for 5 days! Rather no lessons? No problem they are optional!

sharing & connecting

In our sharings you experience that through the power of contact your thoughts, feelings and emotions may rise to the surface. 

body work

Body work helps you to get out of your head and into your body. This way you can get in touch with your true nature! 


 Participant surf therapy 

I never thought the sea would give me so much peace and joy. Even at times when I really did not know how to proceed in life. With Sabine from Surf Therapy Travel I could completely be  myself. The different experiments near and in the ocean and the bodywork techniques next to a Gestalt basis helped me raise my awareness. I now feel more at ease and in peace with myself. I am more self compassionate and  I no longer experience anxiety. I highly recommend surf therapy!
