A media library complete with 32″ HD TV provides the perfect place to analyse your video footage from the day’s session. In addition, a karaoke system, board games, fishing rods and a BBQ ensure you’re always entertained in between surf sessions.

To keep you fuelled, the chef will be dishing up 3 delicious meals each day in a range of cuisines and there is an on-board bar for cold water and beers as well as unlimited coffee, tea and snacks.

Above all, your Renegade Surf Travel guide will be your point of contact on the boat and make sure you’re in the best waves available on each given day. Through their knowledge of forecasts and waves in the region, your guide will plan and cater the surf sessions based on your surf level and the kind of waves you want to surf.
