BLOGGER YOI DOCHI'S TAKE ON MAD TO LIVE RETREATS
"One of those tales I'll be telling my grand kids one day...."
How I love running women's surf retreats. It could be selfish but sheez, I am just getting to meet the MOST radical awesome ladies doing this, and making incredible new friends. So from a selfish perspective, I LOVE IT as I am making so many brilliant new friends, women that are inspiring me in turn to be creative and do epic things.
"Over the week every single one of us progressed so much. It was an awesome personal achievement, we really turned into a little community and felt stoked for each other improving and catching some great waves. I never thought I'd meet a group of strangers and immediately get on so well with them."
Our most recent leg of retreats in Portugal with our homies at the Surf Experience had all-round legend, founder of the kick-ass blog YOI DACHI (check it out. It is EPICNESS on another level) join us for our week of surf, shred adventure and general bad-assing. Hanging out with Bec, a martial arts, surfing, wolf-owning, fellow metalhead enthusiast was a highlight of my trip and I loved seeing her throw herself at everything on offer, a true Mad To Live-er if there every was one.
"Sophie and the SE guys and girls put in a hell of a lot of effort to give you the best week of your life. And no, I'm not exaggerating. It literally was that for me."
Check out what this radical soul made of the trip below, and stay TUNED for all the retreats landing in 2018, book here!
"I made some friends in the space of a week that I hope will last a lifetime — people that have made me think differently about my own life, given me a fresh outlook..."
