‘Waves’ @ Catlins

Date: 26-27 Jan

We’re back on for our 4th year running taking landlocked ladies from the mountains to the ocean. Curio Bay in the Catlins is our destination; surfing and yoga is our mission. We have 2 baches, with a lawn out the front which rolls down the dunes and onto the beach. The beds are all filled but there is a camp site where we will make a base camp for people to gather. We will all eat at one of the holiday houses.

Arrive down there on Friday afternoon (about 3.5-4hrs from Wanaka, 1hr from Invercargill, 3 hrs from Queenstown- long way from ChCh- best way fly to Queenstown on Jetstar and get a ride down). Will be arranging car pooling transport from Wanaka.

Tide times should allow us to surf on Friday afternoon, Sat afternoon and Sunday afternoon. Best time to surf is roughly 2 hours before and after high tide down there.

Yoga sessions running each morning. Wildlife adventures to see yellow-eyed penguins (the world’s rarest penguin), wee Blue penguins, Hectors Dolphins, Sea Lions and Fur Seals and the fossilised forest from the Jurassic period!
