Yoga and surfing are the perfect fit. Find your mind drifting while trying to catch a wave and chances are you’ll wind up getting barrel rolled by a breaker.
But compliment your time in the water with daily sessions on the mat and you’ll be blissed out enough to keep your focus and get upright more often than you take a tumble into the drink.

This week–long break at Robinson Club Agadir offers both activities as part of the ultimate winter fitness break.
With direct access to an 8.5km sandy beach and some of the best waves in West Africa, Robinson Club Agadir is a dream spot for surfers in search of perfect waves and sunny weather.
The resort now offers dedicated breaks that will help you take your surfing skills to the next level, while also helping you get centred with complimentary yoga classes. Spending time stretching out will ensure that you don’t emerge from the Atlantic with your body aching, while the mental benefits on your surfing practice will become apparent quickly too.
The all–inclusive food offering includes specially designed menus focused on using the best local ingredients to help surfers and yogis get their energy levels up in preparation for their next class.
There’s also a golf course, two outdoor pools and tennis courts for those not worn out by a day on the mat and in the water.
With average daytime temperatures in December sitting comfortably above 20ºC, this is the ideal spot for escaping the grey and grim days of early winter.
