Tweaked to perfection


"The Byron 3 day retreat was outstanding. A wonderful balance of activities with an itinerary that has clearly been tweaked to perfection. Serena - your knowledge, both surfing and the local area, was second to none and you played a huge role in the success of the trip. Your calm and inclusive nature gave everyone confidence to not only improve their skills but also be motivated and inspired to do so. Nothing I would change about this trip - accommodation was lovely and the food was exactly what we needed to keep our energy levels up. I can’t wait until my next trip - I will definitely be back. Thank you!"
