SurfYogaBeer Lux and Chill 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 the lifelong friends that you make in just one week. All of this, but at a pace that allows you to chill out without being overwhelmed by a schedule that doesn't fit your needs (or your body). It’s an adventure that lets you really enjoy the sweet things in life, with extra moments between exploring and light workouts to catch up with the group over coffee or a cold beer.

It’s a universal desire to want to see the world, experience moments that take our breath away, to really LIVE. Yet, some of us are past the age that we want to stay up until 1am chugging beer after a full day of activities. And that’s okay; we get it. That’s why we’ve taken our well-known, adventurous style and slowed it down for that #LuxandChill vibe. Whether you’re an empty-nester, your job just isn’t doing it for you anymore, and retirement is looking better than ever, or maybe you just feel like you were born in the wrong generation, these trips are for you. Maybe you and your mom or dad have wanted to take a trip together but just can't get enough time on your hands to plan a 7-day vacation.

So, who is this trip really for you ask? The true answer: everyone. Maybe our classic trips involve too much party, or too much working out. Here, you don't need to be anything but yourself. Not a fitness expert or veteran partier. And the coolest thing about these trips is that your parents are more than welcome! In response to shared interest, Lux and Chill trips provide an atmosphere suitable for multi-generational bonding. Imagine surfing with your parents, sharing stories around a bonfire, and creating memories that transcend generations.

The itinerary is planned to perfection, the accommodations are taken care of, you’ll find support from your fellow travelers and our amazing leaders, and we’ll get a little sweat on. There’s no need to worry about language barriers, feeling safe, running down a local cab on the side of the street, or any other understandable concerns that come with traveling to a foreign country. Once you hit the ground, we’ve got you covered.

Alright, alright, alright. Let's get to the good part. Where are we going?! In 2024, Our Lux and Chill trips could take you to two extraordinary destinations - Kenya and Turkey (There really isn't a bad option here). Picture yourself surfing the waves of the stunning Turkish coastline or immersing in the rich culture of Kenya. These locations have been carefully chosen to offer not only the signature SYB adventure but also a laid-back atmosphere to rejuvenate your mind and body.

Exploring this beautiful world doesn’t need to be overwhelming, especially alone. Nobody to adventure with you? Don’t let that deter you from one of the most fulfilling experiences of your life. Coming solo is exactly what we recommend. Most of our guests travel solo on our trips and therefore get to understand the magic, joy, and profound openness that comes when you deeply connect with a group of strangers. We guarantee you won’t be the only one. Your new best friends are waiting. So take the leap. We’ll be here to catch you.
