Now if there’s one luxury surf experience on the site that wins in terms of uniqueness and bragging rights it has to be our Weekend At Wilkos Experience in Byron Bay, Australia.
Not only will your kick back and enjoy the incredible waves of Byron Bay and the Northern New South Wales coastline – but your host will be non other than Matt Wilkinson – aka Wilko!
Former World Tour Surfer, Quiksilver Pro winner and ringer of the famous Bells Beach trophy , Matt “Wilko” Wilkinson is renowned for epic power surfing, fun times and a good streak of partying!
A full luxury surf experience, Weekend At Wilkos is based out of Wilkos Friday Hut Road Estate – an incredible property in the Hinterland just behind the world famous Byron Bay – which comes complete with private pool, wood fired pizza over, 6 rooms and epic views.
From here Wilko – alongside professional surf coach Johnny Gannon – will take you out to the best break this stretch of coastline has to offer and push your surfing to the next level.
With 2 coaching sessions per day you’ll run through what you want to progress and be given all the tools to make it happen. Included in this are video and photo analysis of all your session – which will be viewed in your own private cinema back at the house!
As well as al the beach and in water coaching you’ll receive during your Weekend At Wilkos, you’ll get expert surfboard advice from Darren Handley (aka DHD Surfboards) and optional classes on breathe hold exercises (something all our team are huge fans of) and even ice baths to help those aching muscles.
You’ll be well fed throughout with all your gourmet meals included – so get ready to fire up the BBQ and crack a cold one on the patio with Wilko as you wind down for the evening and chat about your day in the waves or some of his stories from time on the tour.
And as an added bonus if you’ve got a group of buddies who are keen to join (min 4) you can book a totally exclusive Weekend At Wilkos, which is fully customisable. So if you fancy a round of golf one afternoon he can make it happen.
The bottom line is that this luxury surf experience combines epic waves, world class coaching and one of the best surf personalities the world tour has had the pleasure of hosting, certainly a weekend you won’t ever forget!
