Indonesia

Rippling across the equator for nearly 5000km, Indonesia encompasses more than 17,000 islands.

The Tipi Village

Secluded in the beautiful pine forests of Le Pin Sec - France, just 50 meters from the surf, lies the unique and almost secret Tipi Village.  Along the stunning Atlantic coast, it is here we find the perfect spot if you want to surf, party or relax.  Just outside of Bordeaux, the Medoc region is famous for its sun, sea, food and wine..

The area has a wonderful communal feel, with nearby surf towns that have a real surfer’s vibe to them, with plenty of restaurants, bars, cafés and surf shops. With a thriving markets, street arts, music and entertainment scene during the summer months.

The Famous Lacanau-Ocean surf spot is a well known and popular surf town, which is just 25mins from the tipi village.. 

Accommodation

Their unique specially designed Tipi accommodation is a one of a kind space, for guests to relax and unwind after a full day of surfing. Each Tipi is fitted with comfy beds, real carpet, funky lighting and English plug sockets. 

The Tipi is accommodate up to four people, but if you fancy something more private and intimate, then you can book a stay in a 2-person Private Tipi.  Enquire for availability.

The Camp itself is limited to 20 guests at any one time. This allows them to maintain the high standards and quality that Tipi Village is known for. This also allows the guests and staff to get to know each other individually creating a big family communal atmosphere.

Whether you’re hanging out in the hammock zone, having a beer at the bar, or getting suited up by the board shack about to have twilight surf with some mates, the team guarantee that you won’t want to leave..

The Camp has all the amenities that you could ever need, including on-site hot showers and toilet facilities. You will need to bring your own sleeping bag and towels though!

Food and Drink

All your meals are inclusive during your stay at the Tipi Village.

Breakfast and lunch will be in the typical French style with fresh bread, jam, omelettes, cheese, fruits, salads and sweet and savoury crêpes, served first thing and after the morning surf session.

The evening meals will be an all together different feast back at the camp; every night will see a different theme i.e. Mexican, Italian and Indian nights. Their very own surf chef will encourage anyone to help with the cooking process to teach you how to cook on a budget, without skimping on the quality or flavour so you stay healthy and energised for the next day's surf. They can also cater for anyone with specific dietary requirements.

There are a number of bars and restaurants on site should you choose to eat and drink away from camp some nights.
