AN EVENING TO REMEMBER

Watch the sun go down over the Atlantic whilst having the time of your life riding a surfboard down the crest of a wave with some like minded people.

The word solstice is derived from the Latin sol (“sun”) and sistere (“to stand still”), because at the solstices, the Sun’s declination appears to “stand still”

After the surf we’ll share a moment on the beach and enjoy “standing still” whilst letting that feeling of accomplishment wash over us after a great surf lesson.
