About Surfana

Surfana is a surf and goodlife collective founded in the summer of 2007. The motivation of the collective is based on a desire to live a life based on love, passion and freedom. This goodlife ideology soon took flight which resulted in more members & several surf schools, camps and surf trips around the world. In 2013 it was time to celebrate and the first official Surfana Festival edition became a fact! More info about Surfana at

Can I bring my kids?
