Surf Type of Traveler
Whether you've never surfed before, want to
The average traveler age varies from mid-twenties to mid-forties, but we’ve had many travelers in their fifties or early twenties, and they had a blast! We are strong believers that age is just a number.Minimum age is 18 years old. We sometimes accept younger travellers if they are accompanied by an adult.
You can not be “too bad” at surfing for our trips. Around 30-40% of our travelers have never touched a surfboard before joining our surf trips.You need to know how to swim to join a trip.You can be “too good” for our trips because they are designed for beginners and intermediates. We transport our people to spots that are adapted and safe for beginners and intermediates. If you are looking to throw some airs and to get the barrel of your life, you would have more fun on a charter boat in Indo!
Yes, you can come if you are traveling on your own. About 50% of our groups are composed of lone travelers. This is one of the best parts of traveling with us: right from the start you will join a group of like-minded travelers and share amazing experiences.Yes, we welcome groups of friends. Groups of 2, 3 or 4 friends often join our surf coaching retreats.Yes, we have couples traveling with us. We have limited private rooms on our trips, so we recommend contacting us prior to booking for room availabilities.

- Get a refund in case you had close contact with a Covid-19 infected and have to go into quarantine before departure date.
- Get 24/7 travel assistance.
- Get medical assistance during your surf trip.
Add the optional cancellation insurance during the booking process!
2. Book safely!
If the government of the surf trip destination decides to close its borders and prevents you from entering the country – or if it imposes a mandatory quarantine period on arrival – The Surf Tribe will be forced to cancel the trip and the entire amount paid will be returned to you in form of a ‘The Surf Tribe Voucher’ with a 12 months validity, to be used for any future surf adventure with us without any additional cancellation fee*.
3. Reduced booking deposit
We're now giving everyone the chance of confirming your spot in advance on any of our upcoming surf trips by paying just a 100€ deposit. Balance the remaining amount 60 days before departure to complete your booking and join us in the line-up!
4. Reschedule free of charge!
Our notice period was initially 60 days, but now it’s just 30 days. This means you can change your trip, for any reason, up to 30 days before your scheduled departure date. No hassle, no questions asked, and no charge. If you choose to amend your booking, you can select any new departure date. We’re very flexible, and will work on a case-by-case basis to ensure the best solution is found for you!
