What types of women surfers can I expect to connect with at the retreat?
Sea Together attracts a creative and diverse crowd that values human connection and connecting with mama Ocean through surfing and creativity. Among them may be artists, designers, writers, marketing managers, positive activists, environmentalists, influencers, entrepreneurs, freelancers, inpsiring moms, creators, travelers, scientists, and people searching for inspiration, women empowerment, and surf. We will also have those who are interested in exploring their creative passions more.
How many people will be there?
We have a maximum capacity of 14 people in the house, including hosts. However, we anticipate there will be 10 sea sisters attending.
How long is the retreat?
Including arrival & departure day, the retreat will be 8 days, 7 nights.
What kind of food will we be eating?
Breakfast will be provided daily. Nutritious, light meals will be prepared such as local eggs, fruit assortment, smoothies, granola, coffee, tea, fresh juice, toast. Dinner will be provided the final night of the week. There will always be vegan and vegetarian options available.
I have dietary restrictions and allergies, will there be food options for me?
Yes! We honor all dietary restrictions, please make sure to mention this when paying your deposit and we will be sure to accommodate it.
Is there laundry on-site?
Yes, we have a washer and dryer at the house.
Can we connect with other attendees before the event?
We will create a Facebook group prior to the event to connect everyone. If you don't have Facebook, don't worry! We will find a way to get you connected.
Who are the guest speakers?
Exact details on speakers will be released closer to the event.
Will I have free time during the retreat?
Of course! While we encourage everyone to connect and mingle, you are by no means required to attend any activities or gatherings if you're not up for it. This is a way that also accommodates people of all types. The only "required" meetings would be for the introductions, and the goodbyes.
I've never done yoga before, will that be an issue?
Absolutely not! Our yoga instructor Jen has experience with all skill levels, and will be happy to modify any positions or classes to fit your skill level.
I don't know how to surf, can someone help me learn?
We will be there to encourage and support each other in the water, however, we are not offering surf lessons. Attendees are recommended to be intermediate to expert level, for your safety, as we will be on the North Shore of Oahu. Luckily, in March, waves are smaller than the winter time and will accommodate a range of levels.
Are there any other activities offered besides surfing and yoga?
We are planning for a few creative workshops, conversations, and there will be whale watching and turtle watching from our accomodation. Again, none of the activities are required and you can come & go as you please to explore the beautiful area of the North Shore, Oahu.
Is airport transportation included?
Airport transportation is included only on the designated arrival/departure days, one time. If you do not make the time of our airport pickup and drop off, we can help you find a way to get to our location via bus, shuttle, or uber. If you choose to arrive early or extend your stay, you are responsible for getting to/from the airport to North Shore. Once on the North Shore, we will provide driving to surf spots 1-2 times per day depending on surf conditions, and trips to the local eateries and grocery store.
