Billabong Offers a “Go with a Pro” Fantasy Surf Camp at a Dream Point in El Salvador

posted by / News / January 24, 2007

Billabong has created a unique travel experience at a special surf camp, where legendary pros like Shaun Tomson, Sanoe Lake, Mike Parsons, Peter Mendia and Adam Replogle will surf and coach a select group of attendees on a once in lifetime week-long trip. The opportunity will be limited to 15 surfers in each session.


For five weeks starting February 17th through March 30th, Billabong has reserved the beautiful, private Las Flores Surfing Resort in El Salvador where you can get great waves, un-crowded conditions and top quality accommodations while riding with some of surfing’s legendary professionals. Each week will feature a Team Pro, who will surf with the rest of the group and give pointers from the video that will be shot of each person during the stay. A different Pro will attend the camp each week.

Families are welcome, and if any group fills up 12 people (there is a maximum of 15 per week-long session) then two slots are provided free. The last two weeks are slated for girls and women, and are filling up fast.

Las Flores Surf Club is Central America’s first architecturally designed surfing resort, located directly on the point at Las Flores on a beautiful isolated beach amidst lush tropical surroundings.

Managed by surfers for surfers, Las Flores Surf Club is a surfers’ resort, fully staffed with Billabong surf instructors and coaches. Its signature break “Las Flores” is a world class “tropical Rincon”, with {{{300}}} meter rides when on, the waves forming way out off the point and peeling across the cove, right up onto the sand just meters from the front of the hotel. There are other spots close by, some that are easier and some more challenging than the Las Flores point break, accommodating a range of skill levels.

Price:
$1,{{{850}}} + Airfare (For groups 3 or more, sharing a room)$ Airfare is approximately $550 to $700 from LAX return, depending on when you book. The price includes all accommodation and meals.
