About Us

“We are Surfers. We live to surf; we are obsessed by anything and everything to do with it.”

Yoga and surfing were meant to be together, yoga helps us improve strength, balance and flexibility for surfing; it also calms the mind and improves our mental clarity.

Our yoga retreat gives people a taste of surfing and our surf camp gives people a taste of yoga bringing 2 groups of like-minded individuals together in an exciting and adventurous environment. With the crossover of many activities, meals and lessons, Camp Elsewhere is a social hub brimming with excitement.

“I chose to work in a surf camps so that I can enjoy and share my passion for surfing and travelling every day for the rest of my life.” Elsewhere Crew Member
