Surfers are a unique breed of people who have special interests in life. But the Surfana Festival has managed to bring everything surfers love about life into one terrific weekend that celebrates everything about surfing culture. The festivities take place at the stunning grounds of Camping de Lakens, right smack in the heart of the National Park Zuid-Kennemerland, Netherlands. You’ll be sharing the venue with the park’s natural inhabitants: rabbits, foxes, and deer tend to make appearances at the campsite, which add to the magical experience. After a full day of activities, sit back and enjoy a beverage with local treats on the side at the on-site restaurant, or book a massage to soothe those tired muscles.
There will be lots of live music played by many artists who are well-loved by the surfing community. The artists come from all over the world: Australia, Canada, South Africa, Ghana, Portugal, and of course, The Netherlands. They’ll be playing the soundtrack to a one-of-a-kind fun weekend, while you get to dabble in incredible clinics that cater to a diverse set of interests but revolve around the themes of health and wellness, surfing, and sustainability: surf movement classes, beer tasting, zero waste lifestyles, yoga, Ayurveda, massage, meditation, dance, and much more! The clinics are always a crowd favorite and through the years, have become a focal point of the event.
‘Surfana Festival will make you love life even more: with a dazzling array of activities, incredible music, stunning scenery and sports for all ages, this festival is more of a playground where you get to do what you love the most.’
Even if you’ve never gotten up on a surfboard before, attend anyway – this is a chance for you to learn about surfing while mingling with some of the coolest surf-minded people from all parts of the globe. You’ll need tons of energy to participate in all the fun activities, so the food is another aspect to look forward to. The festival will be abundant with a huge assortment of delicious and nutritious food to keep you going!
