Sharing the Waterman Lifestyle

Our home for the week, the tiny island in Fiji called 'Namotu', will be exclusive to our Kalama Kamp, and is where you will experience world class surf, fishing, snorkeling, and hospitality from of the friendliest cultures in the world.

Letters from Kamp


For me, what sets Kalama Kamp apart is that you can learn at your own pace. A 2 hour clinic throws a lot at you in a short amount of time and you can get overwhelmed, but a 3 day clinic gives you time to work things out and achieve a higher level of proficiency.
Another really amazing part of KK is the camaraderie and atmosphere. You have top level, supportive coaches leading the way, along with a group of like-minded participants who are all "learning-by-doing" in a great location.
There’s a really good balance between land and water training and there’s plenty of downtime to practice what you’ve learned. And for me, one of the great, unexpected bonuses of KK were the fantastic meals enjoyed with the group. It was pretty awesome to “talk story” and make new friends and connections from all over the planet.
