Event Details

And we’re back- taking landlocked ladies from the mountains to the ocean. Curio Bay in the Catlins is our destination; surfing and yoga is our mission. We will be based at the Curio Bay Camping Ground, surrounded by large flax bushes and a hop and a skip from the beach, penguins and petrified forest. The campground has a brand new kitchen and toilet/ shower block and we will also have a yoga studio in the ‘church’ with amazing views in case the beach is not suitable for morning stretching.

Tide times should allow us to surf on Saturday and Sunday early afternoon as the best time to get in the surf is roughly 2 hours before and after high tide down there. We will be coached and supported by Tomo and Nick from Catlins Surf School. They have a great set-up with big floaty boards, warm wetsuits and a technique that’ll guarantee to get you buzzing about surfing.

Yoga sessions running each morning on the beach/ grass if weather allows otherwise indoor in the church with the best views. The classes are taught by Jill Midgley, an Iyengar inspired teacher based in Wanaka. Jill is an outdoor adventurer, hiking, biking, ski touring and much more and brings all this knowledge and experience into her classes. Whether you are a beginner or experienced, Jill has a knack of making you mind feel comfortable and your body well stretched! She has been travelling with the Mission WOW weekends up to Mt Olympus, Porters and down to the Catlins over the past few years and to me it’s an important part of the events.

Wildlife adventures to see yellow-eyed penguins (the world’s rarest penguin), wee Blue penguins, Hectors Dolphins, Sea Lions and Fur Seals and the fossilised forest from the Jurassic period!
