"I went to the one week retreat in Portugal in April. Everything was absolutely perfect from the beautiful villa with private pool, amazing views over the golf course and comfy rooms, the private chefs Elise and Sebastian who cooked us the most delicious foods every day (beautiful breakfast with a different special everyday.
Luxurious packed picnics to have on the beach, post surf cakes, two course dinners with wine), the surf instructors Sam and Seb who were so patient and friendly, the stunning beaches carefully chosen everyday for the best surf conditions.
The daily yoga classes in the villa with the stunning Maria (best way to relax after the busy surfing day!), all the little extras like the sup sunrise tour, the hike with Clem who showed us the best bits of Lagos, and without forgetting our wonderful hostess Sarah who is simply the most kind and caring person, will take such good care of you and do everything she can to make sure you have the best time eve - and you will!!!
I couldn’t recommend this enough and I will for sure be joining another tour very soon!!"
"Spent a wonderful week in Portugal for the surf and yoga trip and it was everything I hoped it would be.
So much thought and organisation went into the week and we couldn’t have been better looked after. Everyone on the team involved were brilliant.
We were hosted by Jodi who also ran our yoga practice each evening and we all learnt so much from, whilst Elise our chef cooked up the most incredible meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) that may as well have been in a 5* restaurant.
As for the surfing itself, we couldn’t have asked for a more supportive instructor than Seb who ensured that we all made great progress throughout the week without throwing us into anything we weren’t comfortable with. Couldn’t recommend this trip enough."
"Had an awesome time in Portugal learning to surf and stand up paddle boarding. The food prepared by Elise and Ruth was incredible, the accommodation was amazing and the setting was beautiful!
Jodi was an amazing host and Yoga teacher and Seb and the lads really put you at ease during the surfing. If you have any doubts about booking this trip, then don't!"
"I was nervous about attending being a peri menopausal women who hadn’t tried surfing before. Everyone was really friendly, the food was exceptional. It was a perfect balance of being active and rest and relaxation. I loved every bit of the retreat."
"WOW what a weekend! It was everything I needed and more. The women were so warm and funny it didn't take long to feel as if I'd known them for ages. A perfect amount of yoga, surfing and swimming led by the beautiful human being Amy. To top it all off the food was incredible, so tasty with a lot of love put in to it. I'll definitely be back"
"The people made it, such warm lovely human beings, I felt so welcome and like I’d known everyone for years. I came home after having had sooo much fun and joy. You need this in your life!”
"I had an amazing weekend with Ride On Retreats in Cornwall. The yoga and surf sessions were just what I was looking for to escape from the hectic pace of life. It was great to meet like-minded women who were up for trying new things and I really came back home feeling refreshed. Thank you Harry and Nessy for a great weekend - I can't wait to do it all again!"
“If you are looking to learn surfing or improve on your surfing skills then I cannot imagine a more nurturing and luxurious way to do it than with Ride on Retreats in Cornwall. Our host Jodi was absolutely fantastic and a gorgeous person and soul as well as a gracious host. She is also an amazing yoga teacher.
Nico was our surf instructor and he was patient, kind, and encouraging. The accommodation was excellent with the most magnificent views of the ocean.
To round of the trip we had an evening of pampering at a beautiful Spa offering hydrotherapy, swimming, sauna steam rooms (the Cornish salt one was amazing) as well as an outdoor hot tub. This was a 5 star experience. Thank you.”

"Ride on Retreats is a superbly run Surf, Yoga, SUP retreat. Sarah is the loveliest Host and you're guaranteed to have a wonderful holiday whether you book as a group or you go along solo. Hot chocolate & hot tubs to warm you up after being in the water are fab!"
"The Ride on Retreat weekends are fabulous for any woman looking for some adventure with the added benefit of a luxury stay! I attended a Cornwall retreat and loved every minute! A fantastic mix of women, mostly beginner surfers but all up for giving it a go and having some fun and plenty of laughs. The yoga instructor Jodi was brilliant and led 4 varied sessions over the weekend. Accommodation was wonderful, providing a really social space and it was perfect being able to relax in our own private hot tub after a day of surfing. Can't wait to try out one of the Portugal retreats now!"
"The Cornish waters were surprisingly warm, the team (inclusive of the hosts and instructors) were beyond lovely, considerate and helpful. I cannot wait to sign up for another event! I 100% recommend."
"Last weekend I travelled down to Cornwall for a surf and yoga retreat. It was amazing. So well organised and there wasn’t anything that was too much trouble. The right balance of organised and chilled out.
A perfect weekend escape! Highly recommend this to anyone needing a new adventure."
Ride on retreats is great, Sarah is the best, she is so organised and thinks of everything.
Going on a ride on retreat break is a fab way to get away from it all and meet like minded people all at the same time.
Sarah really makes you feel welcome & looks after you. Couldn’t recommend enough!
