The Cape, A Thompson Hotel, in Los Cabos, is now offering guests a chance to test their surfing skills. In partnership with Mansa Vida, a travel production company founded by pro-surfers Rob Machado and Tim Curran, the hotel will host a surfing retreat. And it’s not just about riding the waves. The retreat will explore the sport, music and the art of surf culture. Guests will be taught by the best in the sport, including Curran, pro-surfer Damien Hobgood and surf photographer Tom Servais. Surfers will want to show up to every programed event, because special guests will be in attendance – think Rob Machado, musicians and athletes. Tip: There will also be a live acoustic performance by Curran on the hotel’s rooftop. (He’s opened for bands like the Foo Fighters.)

The three-night event will be held May 19 -22. We hear room options vary, but guests can be booked into The Surfer Villa. This three-bedroom, two-story villa is a chill place to hangout. It also comes with a kitchen, gaming room, a private outdoor patio, a plunge pool with sauna and more. Another accommodation option includes the Deluxe King Room. This is the perfect place to relax after a day in the ocean, complete with a private balcony and hanging daybed.
Retreat-goers will dive into the waves with Curran and Hobgood, where there will be hands-on coaching. Remember, This experience is open to surfers of all levels. In the evenings there will be film screenings of cult favorites, followed by a question and answer period with the pros and Servais. In addition, there will be beachside yoga each morning, daily breakfast, surf merchandise from the pros’ sponsors and roundtrip airport transfers.
The trip is limited and based on first-come, first-served basis. There is also an option for a five-night package. Note: Pricing can be adjusted for large groups. To book, dial The Cape directly at 877 793 8527.
