But you’ll need to book today- spots are already selling out fast!
What is the Kalama Kamp 2019?
Kalama Kamp 2019 is about souping up those paddleboarding skills- but that’s not all you’ll be doing. After all, who could come to the exquisite Turks and Caicos and not have a little fun in the sun while you are here? So don’t worry- you won’t have your nose to the grindstone the whole time, and this isn’t a busman’s holiday…this is about making you the very best you can be, surrounded by the powder soft sands and sparkling blue seas of one of the most beautiful places on earth. This year’s TCI Kalama Kamp will take place in October 2019.
This is the adventure water sport retreat of a lifetime, kept tiny so you have the advantage of personal attention at all times. With Big Blue Collective’s certified Paddle Fit instructors and your Kalama Kamp instructor leading the way, the waves will soon be yours.
6 days of waterborne fun await. The guides for the Kalama Kamp are widely acknowledged as some of the best watermen in the world, and they spend their lives surrounded not only by the natural beauty of the destinations they teach in, but learning every nuance and intricacy of the sport until it’s as comfortable to them as their own skin. Dave Kalama himself will be giving personalised daily instruction as well, so if you’re a fan of the sport there’s really no better place to find yourself then Kalama Kamp 2019. Where else in the world could you not only meet this legend but get to apply his wisdom to your skills?
What about the rest of the week?
While the true lure of Kalama Kamp 2019 has to be the instruction itself, there is, of course, a lot more for you to do. Once you’ve had your daily water experience and received the thoroughly personalised instruction of the Kamp, there’s still the wonders of the Turks and Caicos to explore. Through Big Blue’s partnership with Club Med, we can guarantee you the destination holiday of a lifetime to match the fun on your board. Soak in the sun on the beach, take a swim in the warm waters or hang by the pool, and let the cares of daily life in the ‘real’ world melt away.
If you’re keen to extend your stay [or simply can’t bring yourself to leave just yet], Big Blue Collective offers a host of other exciting TCI adventures for your to explore. Head out to the magnificent dive sites in the area, book an eco-excursion into the wild backlands of the less populated islands, or charter your own private boat to further explore the islands and their unique culture. Don’t forget to pick up a conch shell souvenir from the talented local craftsmen while you are here!
I’m not very good on a paddleboard, help!
Don’t worry if your skills have got a little rusty, or even if you’re a newcomer to the sport. All we hear is an even better reason for you to sign on for Kalama Kamp. While the typical Kalama Kamp crowd does have some experience in the sport, it’s a very mixed group and everyone will fit in. Don’t believe the myth you here that you have to have elite SUP skills to join. We’ve even had a few raw novices with no previous experience join up, and a few days later you’d be hard pressed to tell who they were!
Don’t worry if you can’t surf, either. The Kamp instructors will show you exactly how. The aim of the Kamp is to provide an accessible, fun way for you to hone your skills and meet fellow enthusiasts, so don’t feel shy. If you’re not as fit as you’d like to be, that’s no excuse- the Kamps are accessible to everyone. Dave believes it’s important for everyone to push themselves within his or her own limits, not anyone else’s. Fun, camaraderie and SUP are the name of the game.
