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 surfana.com

There is limited availability. First come, first serve!

Kartent

Ever slept in a huge Shoebox??

The KarTent is kinda like a shoebox but definitely different. It’s a temporary festival tent made entirely out of cardboard which sleeps up to two people. The Kartent is made of high-quality kraftliner cardboard which is able to resist rain and keep you cool while the sun is shining. The Kartent is like a blank page waiting for your creativity. Unleash your creative mind and spice up Surfana festival by colouring your Kartent.

The tent will be set up for you on arrival. When the festival ends you can either bring your Kartent home and keep it as a cool Surfana festival souvenir or when you’re too hungover for souvenirs we’ll make sure your Kartent will be recycled. It will be turned into toilet paper, schoolbooks, shoe boxes or some other cool stuff. Long live recycling!

There are two different options for the kartent (tent tickets are included in the price):

  • Basic kartent (€ 70,-)
  • Deluxe Kartent ( € 130,-) – incl. 2-person airbed & 2 sleeping bags
