Layne Beachley OA is widely regarded as the most successful female surfer in history. She is the only surfer, male or female, to claim six consecutive world titles (1998-2003). Layne then went on to win a 7th world title in 2006 before retiring from the ASP World Tour two years later. This incredible 8 night experience, from the 16th – 24th of August 2020,  has you surfing, hanging out with, and taking tips from Layne in a family friendly environment aboard an exceptional surf charter, Carpe Vita. The MV Carpe Vita is a luxury 38m (125 feet) long motor safari yacht with a wooden hull, boasting a total of 10 cabins divided over 3 decks and can cater for a maximum of 20 guests.
