  • Description

    Description

    We have opened a surf camp and hostel in Sri Lanka and now this is our second home with surf and eco friendly living in Ordu.
    This is a UNDP sponsored project where we are working on ways to promote local tastes, organic products and eco friendly living in Turkey. There would be a lot of collaboration between the locals, farms and schools.

    Surf is an essential part of our living. We have started surf school in this village to promote surf lifestyle in Black sea where there are great waves consistently.

    You can be a part of something that would change hundreds of peoples life.
    Join us and be a part of this change!

    We host freelancers and digital nomads. We have good mobile connection in our accommodation and we also have a wifi with high speed unlimited quota. We don't face any electricity cuts.
