  • Description


    I am trying to build a center of experimentation with new ecological technologies, right on the shores of Punta De Lobos, one of the most epic waves on the planet. We’re just a 500m walk from the wave, which you can hear from the yurts and garden, so its nice and easy to check the conditions when you fancy a surf. Everything we do here has a lot of trial and error so it’s always very exciting trying new things to see what works. To finance this I import ethnic products from the distant lands of Indonesia, which I sell or use to develop the center. It’s a constantly evolving project with a million and one things to do so I’m open to full notivated people, whatever your skills. Skills can be learned, but motivation not...

    We’re trying to build this center as a community and one of the most important aspects of this is food and good times. We’ve got a communal kitchen that’s always fully stocked with beautiful regional and organic food (where possible). We take it in turns preparing the community meals and washing up so everyone’s always chipping in. We all eat together for lunch and dinner so if you have any skills in the kitchen we’re always excited to try new dishes from all kinds of cuisines.

    This is an opportunity for all those who are interested in changing the world for the better through circular and sustainable living technologies and habits. I am not interested in short term, feel good solutions with a disregard to conscious living, but instead I want to develop a philosophy of pragmatic, circular living. If the sound of this is getting you excited and fired up then you’re in the right place.

    todos los que estén interesados en cambiar el mundo, mejor dicho intentar salvarlo a través del desarrollo de nuevas y simples tecnologías y hábitos, están en el lugar correcto....

  • Help


    We need help with a whole array of projects but the most important thing is to be motivated.
    Please tell me what you don’t like doing and where your skills are and what gets you fired up, in this way I can look for a job that fixes you and where you are happy and get the feeling you are developing yourself...
    Anyway what I hate most in live is to be a boss, so anybody with good organizational skills, would be very very welcome. Carpenters, mechanics, inventors, photographers, programmers, etc. etc. all welcome too

    Necesito ayuda para construir e inventar soluciones ecológicas, administrar los Yurts, diseño y dibujo técnico, . Bueno, la verdad, a cada uno le trato de buscar su vocación, para lo que es bueno

    Most of the time we have our beautifully decorated Yurts for you to stay in, fully equipped with the vibe of Indonesia. Sometimes on long weekends and holidays, when we rent them out, you will have to stay in our apartment.

    Podrán compartir uno de nuestros Yurts maravillosamente decorados, durante la mayoría del tiempo, exceptuando fines de semana largos y vacaciones cuando los alquilamos, para estos momentos, tenemos un apartamento...

    What else ...

    I speak Spanish, English and German fluently so language isn’t a problem. We’re very fortunate and privileged to be so close to the wave at Punta De Lobos but it does mean that the majority of the surrounding infrastructure are other properties with very few shops. If you want to go shopping then you can either cycle into town (20 mins) or take a collectivo for 1000 pesos. There’s lots of great shops in town. We have lots of shortboard surfboards available if you want to surf and we’re good friends with some rental places so you can always hire a board and wetsuit from there through us. We have 3 dogs and 3 cats that you’ll see floating around the place all the time who are all very friendly.

    Hablo alemán, inglés y español. Trabajaran con más gente, un lugar muy central, no hay negocios cerca, tienen que ir en bicicleta a comprar, 20 minutos. Tablas de surf a su disposición.
