    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are situated in a village in north Goa but are only a few miles from the town of Arambol which has been a mecca for travelers since the 60's . The place is full of interesting characters of all ages from all over the world. In addition, many of our customers are Indian coming to Goa for a holiday so it is a great situation to connect with people from all over the country. Goa has a rich cultural heritage which includes 500 years of Portuguese influence so there are many interesting temples, churches and historical buildings to visit.
    If you aren't a surfer but would like to learn, Goa is a great place to learn. The sea conditions are gentle and easy to learn in and we've been teaching surfing for 11 years so will definitely get you out and riding those waves.

    We have two types of openings. 1) Surf instructors. 2) Content Creators, Videographers, Graphic Designers and Social-media Masters or SEO Specialists.

    1) We are calling surf instructors to help teach and get involved at our surf school. We prefer those who can commit to 2-3 months work but are open to other arrangements.
    We'd rather have certified instructors but will also consider surfers who have experience teaching and sharing the joy of surfing. Those with lifeguard/saver qualifications will be given preference.

    2) We need some help with our online presence and promotion. For that we are looking for Videographers who can shoot our lessons and property and edit them in to useable promo material.
    We've got lots of ideas for posters and designs but need someone to get them into reality so thats where you Graphic Designers would come in.
    Social-media Masters and SEO Specialists, you know what to do too.
    If you are all of those in one person, lucky us. If you can do one or more of the above get in touch with some examples of your work and we'll take it from there.
    (If you've got your own place to stay but would like to help out in return for us teaching you how to surf, we are open to that too)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Most of the work will be in the mornings so the afternoons and evenings will be your own. We are at the quiet end of Arambol beach which has a big community of travelers and is basically a 5 month long festival. Walking up the beach in the morning or evening, you'll pass people engaged in almost every physical and spiritual practice you can imagine. Yoga, Tai Chi, Juggling, Acrobatics, Meditations and all forms of goofing off, this beach has it all. You can walk to most things you'll need but the best way to get around is on a motor scooter and there are many lovely villages, rivers and beaches to visit. Traveling further east you can visit the Western Ghats which has tiger reserves. The capital of Goa, Panjim, has many buildings from the Portuguese era. There is plenty of nightlife in Goa with hundreds of restaurants, bars and clubs to visit.

    So, our area of Goa doesn't have a great internet connection. Some days it's fine but on others it's just slow or dead, ("dead" doesn't happen too often but it can happen) We tend to have a few back up 4G connections for emergencies.
