Turtle Bay Hosts Gerry Lopez Surf and Yoga Retreat

Posted on Wed, 2015/07/29 - 11:50am by Jeff Mull

There aren’t many surfers alive who are more respected than Gerry Lopez. Through his cat-like grace and tranquil approach, Gerry redefined how surfers approached Pipeline in the 1970s. Regarded as one of the most dangerous waves on the planet, Gerry showed the surfing world that it was possible to sit deeper, drop in later, and spend more time behind the curtain at Pipe than was ever thought possible—all the while his characteristic nonchalance, a trait he credits to the decades he’s spent practicing yoga.

On October 12th through the 15th, Gerry—who gained the moniker Mr. Pipeline for his prowess at the peak—will be holding his second surf-and-yoga inspired retreat right here on the North Shore at Turtle Bay. Regarded as a surfing sage, this sought after three-day excursion will see participants not only surf and practice yoga with Gerry, but will hopefully pick up on some life-altering insights as well.

“Surfing teaches you to be in the moment spontaneously,” explains Gerry. “Go with the flow smoothly. That’s how you get the most of the wave and it’s also how you get the most out of life.”

In addition to time guests will spend surfing, practicing yoga, and learning how to life a more Zen-like life with Gerry, you’ll also have the opportunity to spend some time with six-time SUP world champion and Kai Lenny. As one of the most experienced and versatile athletes in water sports, Kai is a legend in his own right and also happens to be one of the most down-to-Earth individuals you’ll ever meet.  

Space for the retreat is limited and those interested are encouraged to reserve their space soon and learn more about the event by clicking here.
