Beyond the Board

Achieve your peak performance with a holistic approach to water sports

Come experience the paradise that is Namotu with Beyond the Board. Relax, unplug, and tap into Fiji island life, all while exploring the surrounding waters, reefs and surf breaks for world class; surfing, kiting, foiling, and winging.

Your days will be filled with adventure, activities and educational sessions dictated by the natural flow of the tides, swell, wind and weather. Our Beyond the Board experience features daily skill, technique, and/or hands on coaching clinics. But our curriculum will take you far beyond simply improving your skills and dive deep into our mind and body connection while also raising our awareness of the importance of our greater connection to nature and the elements for positive and sustained mental and physical health and happiness.

Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or experienced water-person Beyond the Board will help you gain a greater understanding of your mind and body and help you push yourself to achieve your water sports goals and improve your mental and physical well being.

    Surfing, SUPing, Kiting & Foiling

    No matter what board sport you’re into, we have the gear and skills to get you riding.

    Namotu’s closest break, Namotu Lefts is ideal for surfing but at high tide it becomes a foil playground. When the trade wind picks up the prevailing direction is ideal for down the line wave kiting. Flat water more your style? The other side of the Island offers almost unlimited open water.

    Other local breaks include Swimming Pools, Wilkes, Restaurants, Tavy Rights and Cloudbreak is just a 10 minute boat ride away. There are breaks suitable for beginner, intermediate and advanced longboarders and shortboarders.

    Food and Dining

    Enjoy 3 meals daily prepared by the Namotu kitchen and enjoy your catch served fresh. We specialise in sashimi and each night the snacks are a true highlight so you’ll want to make it back by sunset. If you’re fishing out wide a packed lunch will be served onboard your boat.
