The snow may have dried up, but the Nikita crew are keeping themselves busy by organising a Nikita Surf Trip this summer.

The Czech Nikita girls will be heading over to France to host a series of workshops. Whether you want to try surfing for the first time or improve your skills, the Surf Trip is open to all ages and abilities and promises lots of sun, sand and socialising.

The trip includes surf lessons in small groups with professional instructors, evening video coaching, a course about the ocean, surf history and surfing rules while riding the waves, plus evening activities, parties and a wellness program. Based in Hossegor, there will also be loads of travelling around the coast, from Henday to Seignosse, visiting local surf spots and meeting with pro surfers along the way. You can also get to experience some indo boarding, tour a surf factory and take part in a fun contest for beginners.

Participants will stay in beach bungalows in the centre of the surf town Hossegor, 50 km from Biarritz and close to the Spanish border. There will be four weeks of surf trips this year, two in June and two in September:

Dates 13–22 June 2008 20–29 June 2008 29 August – 7 September 2008 5–14 September 2008

The cost is 500 Euros, which includes return transport from Prague to Hossegor, accommodation, travel along the coast, trips to Biarritz, coaching, video coaching, rental equipment, indo boarding… and pretty much everything except food!

There are only 20 spots per camp, so {encode="" title="drop the Nikita crew an email"} to book your spot.
