What you'll do

The perfect wave. Every surfer chases it. Kelly Slater, like a surfing mad scientist, MADE it. And now you’ll experience the much-hyped, man-made wave for yourself. Forget Hawaii. Forget Fiji. You and a friend are being flown out to the super secretive WSL Surf Ranch in central California for the surfing getaway of a lifetime, located hours from the nearest beach! That’s right, you’re going to surf the wave that, until now, has only been ridden by the sport’s most elite athletes and Kelly’s friends and family. And not to worry, weekend warriors—the wave’s power can be adjusted to your skill level. Just throw in some surf coaching from Kelly, amazing footage of your waves and a BBQ dinner at the Ranch, and we’d call that a pretty swell day. Flights, ground transportation and hotel are included.

Who you'll help
