COMO Uma Canggu and COMO Shambhala Estate have teamed up with professional surfer, Sally Fitzgibbons to launch the brand's first all-women surf and wellness retreat. Ranging from for beginner surfers through to intermediate level, the Surf and Wellness Retreat with Sally Fitzgibbons has been designed as a celebration of women’s strength and ability, designed to inspire a path towards positive change.
Guests will spend four nights at COMO Uma Canggu, followed by three nights at COMO Shambhala Estate. Participants can experience COMO Shambhala cuisine and service, as well as a variety of outdoor and spiritual activities that are on offer. In the environment of the COMO resorts, guests can wind down and reconnect, engage in one-to-one conversation with the host and meet likeminded individuals.
Fitzgibbons is a figurehead in the evolution of women’s surfing—she has won 11 World Surfing League World Tour Championships, achieved runner-up for the World Title for three consecutive years and has a reputation for being the most consistent surfer on the World Tour Championship. She is an advocate of an active lifestyle and has written two books, Live Like Sally and Summer Fit - All Year Round.
In addition to Fitzgibbons' guidance, instructors from Tropicsurf, which has run COMO’s surf programs in the Maldives and Bali since 2014, will provide lessons tailored to the female physique and personalized according to guests’ needs. The lessons may range from learning the basics of surfing or improving the foundations of guests’ technique.
Surf and Wellness Retreat with Sally Fitzgibbons runs from November 2 to 9.
