A little background from Cam: ‘Surf & Grow 2017 was born out of a period of time leading up to a talk i did a few years ago. During this time i was lucky enough to be able to share my story and struggles with anxiety & depression, and the ways in which uncovering my story through practices such as journaling, time to reflect and maybe most importantly group sharing of my story in a nurturing environment helped bring more clarity, meaning and purpose to my life. Throughout this time I rediscovered my passion for the ocean and surfing, and subsequently led to a discovery of a greater sense of meaning in all areas of my life.’

What is Surf & Grow 2018

Surf & Grow is for people who want to develop their surfing, from complete beginners to intermediate level surfers.

During the week we will learn foundational surfing skills that allow all participants to take home with them new skills which they can apply in their travels abroad to continue pursuing their love of surfing. From technical pool training, to in ocean personal video coaching and photography. Each step of surfing process will be broken down in practicable and understandable terms for all levels of surfers.

In addition, we will carve out specific periods of time during the retreat to have conversations as a group as well as spend some time journaling, and reflecting on our story. Cam takes the point of view that; the simple act of giving yourself the time to pursue what inspires you (surfing, ocean, or whatever moves you) is a growth experience.

All conversations will be held in a safe container where you will have time to explore your story. Theses sessions will peppered with a little literature/poetry, music and dedicated time for reflection and open dialogue. Not overly structured but just enough to help each other get below the surface.
