When it comes to travel, age is no barrier, and adventure knows no bounds. For those in their 40s and 50s, exploring the world can be just as thrilling and rewarding as it is for younger travelers. (And fits much better into the budget.) We don’t want to freak you out - but let’s chat reality. The average American retires at 64 and life expectancy is 76. We’re not here to remind you that life isn’t forever - we’re here to remind you that your life is happening now, and you can’t wait to start living it. We live in a society where working to live has been quickly replaced by living to work, and that’s just not what we stand for.
The LATimes says that the best medicine really is travel - so if you’re looking to lower your stress levels, prevent heart attack and depression, and improve your brain health, skip the pharmacy and book the trip. (Just kidding, follow doctors orders, but seriously, book the trip.) The study was produced by The Global Commission on Aging and Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies, in partnership with the U.S. Travel Assn. It compared crossword puzzles and museum visits to travel in regards to physical and cognitive benefits. Sounds to me like science is telling you that an epic adventure needs to be planned STAT.

The idea of solo travel and adventure is often reserved for the young, carefree generation. Backpacking Europe without a cell phone, hotel reservations or GPS (who remembers paper maps?) may have been the last time you really saw and experienced the world with a sense of adventure. Life is short and we’re not getting any younger… let’s check some things (and destinations) off our bucket list. Here at SurfYogaBeer, we’ve added exclusive small group trips for ages 40+. Consider us your travel agency; we’re planning every detail of your trip for you, so all you need to do is show up.
84% of travelers are over the age of 40 and not everyone wants a family vacation. If you’re looking to meet a bunch of other individuals with the same passion for travel and seeing the world in a fun way, this experience is for you. Come alone, with a friend, or event with a spouse, and get ready to join a new community and adventure that you’ll have for life.
What’s different from our signature SYB trips? To start, everything will be at a slower pace with an emphasis on luxury. A little less drinking (less tequila, more rosé), running (expect hiking and bespoke workouts), and activities that will bring our group together (new friends from all over the world). We’ll focus on adventures that help us relax, enjoy the scenery and show you beautiful corners of the world that you may not find on your own trip. It’s all about the balance.
Born from the spirit of our wildly successful ventures catering to the 25-45 age group, SYB Our Time encompasses what our guests have come to know and love about the SYB experience – the bucket list destinations, the world-class trainers, the connections, and developing lifelong friendships, but with more more elevated accommodation and meals, and more refined activities. Surf Yoga Beer is not just a journey; it's a lifestyle.
