Bonanza Collective


Surf, Yoga & Community

Bonanza Collective is an intimate and exclusive surf and yoga retreat curated by us, Amanda Djerf and Elin Hagstein. After our move down to Biarritz we've been *blessed* with a life packed with all the things we love: waves, wine, community, friends, dance, nature. BONANZA! And now, we want you to experience it too. An all female surf retreat right by the sea, full of the above. Pure French bonanza, and we can't wait to share it with you. C'est la belle vie.

Our first year with Bonanza Collective and the ladies who attended completely blew us away. And luckily, THE COMMUNITY CONTINUES TO GROW. This time around, we've decided to spice things up. For the summer editions, we'll live in a beachfront villa with the ocean as our front yard, and the enchanting Pyrenees as our backdrop. Morning swims, lots of surf, and yoga to unwind. Never ending summer nights in our huge garden and evenings out in the charming village. No need to say more, it has to be experienced.
