Colourworks Kick Off 2011 – Surf’s Up!

Colourworks teambuilds are renowned for being completely awesome – from high speed boat trips, to bicycle rides down Chapman’s Peak, braai’s at Oudekraal and ArtJamming sessions, we go all out.

Our 2011 Kick Off was no different. After discussing our goals for the year at the styling Atlantic Beach Hotel in Melkbos (and brushing up on our seaside lingo) we hit the beach with Stoked School of Surf for a day of waves, sun and lots of laughs. Michelle and her team covered all the basics and supplied us with wetsuits, boards and lots of gees. Nerves were calmed by her able team of instructors and we took to the waves in no time at all. Almost all of us learnt to stand, with a special mention to Donovan and Kate, who conquered their respective fears of water and sharks to emerge converted. Let it be known that a couple of us couldn’t resist pulling ‘island style’ when we stood up on our first waves.

Contact Stoked School¬†of Surf to book a lesson if you’ve always wanted to give Kelly Slater a run for his money – it comes highly recommended! We’re proud to have been their first corporate group and encourage you to get in touch with Michelle to book your next teambuild. Like Michelle and team say, you’re guaranteed STOKE!
