Centered by a balance of all things its name, and always fueled by the spirit of travel and adventure, SurfYogaBeer (SYB) was born out of the desire to provide something that technology can't solve. To get back to the basics of life – to feel connected with oneself and within a thriving tribe.
Since our inaugural trips to Costa Rica and Nicaragua in 2014, SYB has traversed the globe offering an expansive selection of adventures and experiences that have positively impacted thousands of lives. As the brand continues to grow internationally, SYB has also spawned multiple local chapters spread across the U.S. and London, producing hundreds of local market events - from run clubs to bootcamps to hikes to goat yoga and surf club meetups.
Ultimately, we inspire action and instill adventure. We don’t retreat. We revive. So come catch a wave with us. The water is nice.
Though officially launched in NYC in 2014, SurfYogaBeer (SYB) was initially created years earlier in Southern California where founder Mantas Zvinas would host adrenaline-filled excursions with friends & family around the region. To Mantas and those around him, this was a way of life, a means to connect on a personal level, to deepen existing relationships and foster new friendships.
Fast forward a few years, upon moving to NYC to pursue fitness full-time as a SoulCycle instructor, Mantas quickly noticed the same adventurous spirit existed within those he met, yet there was simply a need for someone to pull everything and everyone together...and then hit the road.
After forging multiple relationships with key fitness leaders in NYC and beyond, including an organic food/nutrition partnership to fuel its trips (with Soho-based restaurant, Salud), SYB was born and ready to take NYC – and the globe – by storm.
SYB strives to create a balanced environment that is open-minded and bold, with adventures that follow a simple mission: Detox to Retox. This means we put value in bettering our bodies and minds while also enjoying some of the simple pleasures in life (beer!). We go on excursions worldwide to escape the rat-race, experience cultures different from our own, and make friendships with individuals of the same adventurous spirit.
We get our sweat on during the day with workouts designed to take advantage of the environments we explore, with the goal to come back home looking and feeling even better than when you arrived. The nights are filled with activities that lead to stories your grandkids will get sick of hearing, laughter that echoes deep into the starry night, and beer (see also: wine, rum & aperol spritz)...because you know, it’s not the bottled water making us drop it low!
Ready, set, SWEAT! The SYB Run Club offers a cray-cray workout featuring short running bursts, mixed with abs, booty and upper body strength training. Expect to run 3-6 miles, sweat like a pig, feel some sore muscles the next day and most importantly meet some amazing people that will keep you coming back!
We’re always up to some cool stuff. Whether it’s fitness classes, SoulCycle charity rides, yoga, bike rides, or surfing, you can always find a reason to join us and engage with the SYB community. Check out our calendar page for more info.
Our latest project is a full weekend adventure for cancer survivors free of charge. We specialize on creating these adventures and wanted to open the opportunity to those that we believe would need it most.
In our previous endeavors, we have raised money through SoulCycle Charity rides with our founder Mantas Zvinas, we have thrown parties to help raise money for our own community members with their battles with cancer, and we’ve brought supplies to orphanages with Katie B and our SYB Academy teacher trainings.
