Exploring Surfing Coliving Communities

by Emma Bousfield • Aug. 21, 2023 • 3 min read

Okay, picture this: you work remotely and you’re on your way to pick up your morning coffee from a cafe just down the street, the air is salty on your skin, you can hear the sound of crashing waves off in the distance, and knowing that in just a couple of hours you can grab your surfboard and catch some waves is all the motivation you need to get to work. Well, we’d like to welcome you to the world of surfing coliving communities.

Embracing the Surfing Culture

You may have heard people say: surfing is more than just a sport; it's a way of life, and as cheesy as it sounds, it’s true. Surfing is a sport that encompasses a lot of the same values as coliving enthusiasts: adventure, connection to nature, personal growth, travel, and in the coliving world, surfing is an interest that is shared amongst many.

The Allure of Surfing Coliving Communities


1. Community Bonding:

Coliving communities are typically built on the foundation of shared passions and the surfing-coliving community is no exception. Catching waves and the constant desire to pursue more challenging conditions create an immediate sense of camaraderie. And this is true whether you're a seasoned surfer or a beginner, if you choose a surfing coliving community, you'll find yourself surrounded by like-minded individuals eager to support and learn from each other.


2. Proximity to Nature:

There’s really no better way to wake up than to wake up to the rhythmic sound of waves and the view of the ocean right outside your window. This niche type of coliving community offers a direct connection to nature. And if the ocean itself isn’t enough, you also have the opportunity to witness the most breathtaking sunrises and sunsets and sometimes even explore surrounding jungles or rainforests.


3. Personal Growth:

In the same way that catching waves requires patience and persistence, personal growth also demands a similar degree of dedication and resilience. Surfing really challenges people to step outside their comfort zones, embrace uncertainty, and overcome fears. Surfing coliving communities usually encourage risk-taking, both on and off the surfboard.

4. Work-Life Balance:

Many surfing coliving communities are situated in coastal towns that boast a relaxed pace of life. These particular settings allow you to strike the perfect balance between work, play, and downtime. Imagine: you can start your day by hopping in the ocean for an early morning surf sesh before opening up your laptop - knowing that the water is just a stone's throw away whenever you need a break.

5. Lifelong Memories:

The memories you make within a surfing coliving community are bound to be unforgettable, pinky promise. From riding your first wave to sharing a couple of drinks on the beach, not a day will pass that you won’t be wondering if you’re living in a dream.


Basically, all you need to know is that surfing coliving communities will offer you the most incredible blend of adventure, nature, community, activity, relaxation, and so much more. There are a lot of parallels between the sport of surfing and career development, which makes these communities perfect for coliving. Whether you're expert-level, or just want to test the waters (literally), the surfing vibe and energy are perfect for you.
