Photos by Robbie Hickman. Words by John Streit. We’re beyond stoked for the 2015 debut of our signature outdoor adventure: False Cape Retreats return on Saturday, June 20! Through our amazing partnership with False Cape State Park, Surf & Adventure Co. has put together this unique way to experience a dramatic cross section of ecosystems through an interpretive tram ride on the famed Blue Goose Express through the marsh flats, forest and dunes of Back Bay and False Cape. Meanwhile, the S&A crew and park staff truck equipment and participants personal affects to the retreat site for set up (surfboards and SUPs must be walked-in by participants from the land side of the dunes). Participants – limited to the tram’s capacity of 24 – are then dropped off at Barbour Hill for a morning/afternoon surf session in the natural, uncrowded beaches with the option of massage and yoga sessions. Lunch from one of our favorite local eateries – Back Bay Gourmet – is also catered to the site with options to please any palate (please let us know of any special dietary needs in advance!). Those who have experienced the majesty of False Cape State Park and the thrill of surfing its healthy, natural sandbars know how special of an experience our False Cape Retreats truly are.
