Adriatic Adventures

Come on a real adventure - to the island of Lopud. Known for having the best beaches in the Dubrovnik region of Croatia, it’s the perfect setting to get our fitness on! You’ll be surrounded by people with the same energetic spirit as you, working out during the day and hydrating in all ways at night! 2019 saw us take over the island for three consecutive weeks, 30 adventure seeking souls per trip, therefore making way for 90 sexy SYB Croatia alumni (let's not talk about 2020). Speaking of that last number...the vision this year is to go BIG in 2021. THIS WILL BE OUR BIGGEST TRIP TO DATE - 60 PEOPLE STRONG! Welcome to Surf Yoga Beer XL, where the parties are now bigger, the workouts a little sweatier, and the adventures a tad more thrilling, but the network and connections you make will be just as real as always!

OUR NEW HOME

OUR NEW HOME

Arrive in Dubrovnik (DBV airport) before noon on 17th. We’ll be taking the 1:30pm ferry from Dubrovnik to Lopud to meet our 3pm check-in at our magical SYB castle! If your flight gets in later, there are two other ferries you can take to get to Lopud: one leaves at 4:30pm and the other at 8pm.

We'll get to know each other and our amazing location. Dinner is served at 9pm, dancing is rampant, and lights go low and the disco balls come out. Where this night takes you is your story, but this is just day 1.

KAYAKING + BIKING

KAYAKING + BIKING

Get ready to experience SYB to it's fullest. We begin with wake up calls, more on this later, go straight into morning workouts, yoga cool down, a dip in the ocean to clean up, and a hearty breakfast all before it's even 10am.

Today we kayak to the underwater caves to the island next door (about an hour). Then we'll bike between the villages of Suđurac and Šipanska Luka where we have lunch and take it the same way back. This is also the night we head into town for dinner, bring your dancing shoes!

DUBROVNIK

DUBROVNIK

After our morning routine we take you to beautiful and old Dubrovnik. Whether you're a history buff or G.O.T fan our local guide has got you covered on todays walking tour. We break off from the group and have free time to shop and explore before meeting at a special restaurant overlooking the old stone walls. Round off your day with drinks soaking up the view, or fully immerse yourself with cliff jumping! Watch the sunset as we cruise back to our island home for dinner.

HIKE LOPUD

HIKE LOPUD

Discover the ruins of Lopud as we hike across the Island, if the hike doesn't take your breath away, the views certainly will when we reach Sutvrac Fortress. From there we'll run down to Sunj beach for some beach games, workouts and if your down, see if you can take on the 1000 abs challenge! We've put in the work now it's time to play. Soak up the beach vibes and grab lunch, recharge because tonight we hit the club!

We'll take our private boat to Dubrovnik for dinner and then we go from working out in a fortress to partying in one! Hitting up Dubrovnik's hottest club!

SUNJ BEACH

SUNJ BEACH

Easy morning yoga because we know last night was crazy. Today we hike and explore our little island and the nearby Sunj beach. Known for its shallow waters that extend for hundreds of feet, we'll snorkel, kayak, lounge and take it all in with 35 of your new best friends.

Mid day we'll have various workouts planned, optional runs, yoga workshops, and of course beach bootcamps! Whats better than having a drink once you've finished a tough sweat session!?

As the sun set's we pull out the yoga mats and stretch out our sore bodies. We'll take the yoga practice to a deeper level, this is where magic happens, followed by a sexy mellow dinner at home.

BOAT DAY

BOAT DAY

We'll go through our morning routine and then head straight for our beautiful boat. We'll cruise through the islands, and see the Dalmatian Coast the way is needs to be seen, from the water!

We finish our night with a beautiful dinner at our home. We'll present SYB awards, share stories, and then party our asses off for our last night together!

BACK TO REALITY

destination

Lopud is the sexiest of the Elafiti islands, a small archipelago northwest of Dubrovnik, Croatia.

Lopud

RUIN MY LIFE

Once reserved as the summer getaway for aristocrats from the mainland, the island had two monasteries, 30 churches and a number of noble palaces. Devastation hit with the earthquake of 1667. Leaving the island littered with ruins.

RUIN MY LIFE

PARK IT

Sorry no Ubers in these parts! Lopud is a car free, pedestrian paradise. Less noise and improved air quality, breath it all in as you watch some dope sunsets

PARK IT
LIFE'S A BEACH

LIFE'S A BEACH

Sunj Beach is the gem of the Elafiti Islands, white sand (a rarity in Croatia) and clear blue water that remains knee deep for almost 100 meters out to sea.

DON'T GET TIDE DOWN

DON'T GET TIDE DOWN

There are 1,246 islands in the Adriatic sea along the Croatian coast, 47 of which are currently uninhabited. Island take over let's go!

TESTIMONIALS

@jaimelathrop

@jaimelathrop

“The story of SYB is very simple; Surf is adventure, risk, adrenaline. Yoga is spirituality, a deeper perspective on the short amount of time we have on earth. And beer is our chance to enjoy and not take it too seriously. They don’t always surf or do yoga or even drink beer on every adventure but they do take equal parts of what these things stand for and make one hell of an experience! Best Trip Ever! @surfyogabeer Cant wait to plan my next one. Miss this crew”

syb faqs

I want to BUT

What's so special about SYB?

Cancellation policy...

What's up with theft?

Do I need to be a fitness babe or muscle man to come on these trips?

What happens after I book?

How much moola should I bring on these trips?

Most adventurous trip?

Most relaxing trip?

Most fitness intense trip?

Most popular trip?

Does everyone booze?

We get it- you’re either too busy, don’t know anyone else going, or just accidentally spent way too much on drinks this weekend. Now let’s cut the BS and get real. There will never be the perfect time to get away, being the busy human that you are. We actively encourage people to come alone on our adventures so they can meet people outside of their usual social circles. Everyone that chooses an SYB trip is there to get outside their comfort zone and meet like-minded sweaty people. Money spent on experiences is what every 100 year old says is the most important thing we can do while we’re young. Listen to Gramps and get ready to squat it out with us!
We are firmly committed to providing quality product. We detox to retox because we know that a balanced life is the best life. Your workouts will be led by some of the best fitness instructors around the country, so you’ll be living your best life in paradise while doing 100 pushups and situps a day (we make it fun, we promise). Seriously though, when was the last time you came back from vacation with a more defined six-pack? The friendships and memories that you make on our adventures so are important to us! We pride ourselves in creating experiences that will change your life.
First of all, we’re calling bull on that work event that “just happened” to pop up. But we’ll get over it and see you on the next trip. While deposits are non-transferable or refundable, your payment might be depending on time of cancellation! We will work with you to try to push the payment (minus deposit) to another trip or we can issue a refund, again depending on time of cancellation. What we can’t help you out with? The FOMO that’ll come from watching the adventure on Instagram stories from home. Check out the Terms and Conditions and About pages for more info.
Be safe and you won’t be sorry. We usually choose destinations with low crime rates but it is always wise to stay vigilant. General rule of thumb: if losing X valuable is going to ruin your trip, don’t bring it! (So keep your Yeezys and nice jewelry at home.) Petty theft is the most common type of crime that exists, so be wary of pickpockets looking for cash and always watch your bags. As a precautionary measure we typically provide safes in each room. We’ve yet to experience any considerable theft on our trips (let’s keep it that way).
Do I need to be a fitness babe or muscle man to come on these trips? No way! Not every human being walks around looking like Gigi Hadid- we feel that. All different levels are welcome- even if the only time you’ve ever broken a sweat is hustling to the fridge during commercial breaks. Coming to all workouts are highly encouraged but not mandatory and we make adjustments for various fitness levels and injuries. The point is to try something new and make memories that you’ll never forget. Check out some BLOG POSTS to hear from other non-Schwarzeneggers about their experience.
We won’t leave you hanging after you drop dat coin. We’ll email several times along the way: first after you book, second about a month and a half before the trip, and third two weeks before. Then we’ll make sure you know where to be and when. Unlike that dude from last night, we’ll be hitting you up.
Our adventures could go up to 8 days, which means you should bring at least $400 USD, unless maybe you’re feeling extra generous at the bar. Most meals are covered, but sometimes we’ll dine out and it’s a good idea to have some cha-ching. Credit cards are usually accepted but if not, we’ll let you know beforehand. But for now, get on bringin home that bread.
Take your digital detox to the next level and join us in the Philippines, get ready to step outside of your comfort zone.
This will probably be the Amalfi Coast. Nothing rejuvenates the soul like washing down plates of fresh pasta with local limoncello and floating in the clear waters of Capri.
For sure Sayulita. Between squats we’ll hydrate with shots. Workout, tan, workout, tequila, workout, pass out. You’ll come home stronger and get compliments on your sexy tan and super toned arms.
Hands down this has to be our OG trip - Nicaragua! IT IS Surf Yoga Beer!.
We're all about letting loose and not taking life too seriously, we respect choice and there's no pressure to drink if you don't want to.
