FAQs Surf & Yoga Escapes
Where are we going to?
We usually hold the weekend down the South Coast in a place called Manyana. A beautiful little beachside town with waves that suit every level of surfer. It’s a 3 hour drive South of Sydney.
Are transfers included?
Transfers are not included but we can help you organise transport if you don’t have a car.
When is the best time to leave?
It’s best to leave Sydney past 7 pm Friday to escape the peak hour traffic and head back to Sydney on Sunday 1 pm.
How many people are coming?
We keep groups very small to keep quality high. Usual groups are four people. We take a maximum of six at one time. If you do have a group of four we are happy to organise a private group escape for just you and your friends.
Are boys allowed to come?
Most weekends are women only but a couple times throughout the year we offer GUYS WELCOME SURF AWAYS! On these weekends feel free to bring your boyfriend, best guy friend, hubby, brother, son, etc. If you do have a group of four we are happy to organise a private group escape for just you and your friends and you can bring whoever you like.
I have never surfed before, is it for me?
It definitely is for you then. The Venus Goes Gidget team will introduce you to the world of surfing in the special Venus Goes Gidget way of teaching. Away from the crowds, we’ll make sure you enjoy yourself in the water without any pressure.
Do I need to be able to swim?
Yes, the only prerequisite is that you have basic swimming skills.
I have contact lenses, can I still surf?
Yes you can wear contact lenses in the water but bring spares.
What should I pack?
Depends on the time of the year a bit. We’ll send you a packing list with your booking confirmation. But really it’s swimsuits, bikinis and lots of comfy clothes to chill out with delicious food and for some yoga stretches.
Can I bring my own surfboard and/or wetsuit?
Yes, you more than welcome to bring your own gidget gear.
I’ve got special dietry requirements, is that a problem?
No, not at all. Ali, our nutritionist, will make sure you’ll be well fed no matter your requirements. I’m sure she’ll be able to give you a few hints and tips to manage your diet on the weekend as well.
Is Alcohol included?
Nope not really but you are more than welcome to BYO. Yes, it’s a healthy weekend but a glass of wine or two is good for you, isn’t it? However, we would not recommend to get smashed, as it’s not much fun to learn a new skill when you are hung-over and as we know you are not as likely to enjoy delicious food when you are nursing a hang over.
