Got a question?

Once a year Surfana Festival takes place in the Dutch national park of the Kennemerduinen. Surf minded people from all around the world come together to feel a unique blend of music, clinics, food, arts and love. An ultimate experience in which you deeply connect with nature and each other. Something, we think, softly touches the essence of our existence.

What is Surfana festival?

Surfana is a surf and goodlife collective founded in the summer of 2007. It started as a surfschool in Zandvoort but soon a second surfschool in Vlieland, a camp in Bloemendaal and an intimite surftrip company joined the collective.

It is our philosophy to live happily, to enjoy life to the utmost – and to share our lifestyle with others. Our success is simply based on a combination of surf and sport activities on the one hand, and a healthy lifestyle around nature on the other. Located near the beach and the beautiful dunes of the National Park Zuid-Kennemerland, here people will be able to enjoy a simple lifestyle among other people who share that same vibe!

In 2013 we decided to create an event that reflects the whole Surfana ideology. Surfana Festival was born. Here we’ve brought together al our love and passion into a one-weekend experience of pure goodlife.. It is a festival to celebrate our lifestyle but also to inspire more people to choose a life based on happiness instead of work.

Minimum age?

The minimum age to gain access to the festival is 18 years.
Teenagers and kids under 18 are welcome if accompanied by an adult rightful parent or guardian. Friends/siblings above 18 do not count in this case and we will be checking ID’s at the check in/entrance.
So be aware: people under 18 that would like to come to the festival with friends that are above 18 will be refused.

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
