Surfing and Pole Dancing what a mix ! At first sight Pole Dancing image doesn’t match much with the Nature side of surfing we embrase at the Natural Surf Lodge… Collective imagination leads to lascivious activity and dim light of strip clubs. Well, not at all. Pole Dancing with Karo Swen is an athletic sport that she even brings to a choregraphic art ! It’s a good way not to take yourself seriously, accept our body fit and develop deep postural muscles so important for surfing and in daily life. If you are fully beginner or advanced pole dancer, man or woman, do not hesitate to join for a fun and active week in a good and uninhibited mood and amidst nature.
In order to get the maximum benefit of you Pole Dance week, it is better if you’ve tried out one or twice to join the beginner/intermediate level so you can master the V/ crucifix Invert/ outside/ inside/ viva / princess... For interlediaite/advanced level, on top of these movements it would be best to know outside to pike to inside in spin / V high in spin / shoulder mount / superman / Jade / etc.
Natural Surf Lodge and Karo Sven encounter : Karo is an old acquaintance ! She tried surfing at Natural Surf Lodge about 10 years ago and always kept in touch while she continued her Pole Dancer career. Pole Dancing as a professional took over her graphic designer job. She gives private and collective classes in well known Parisian studios, produces artistic videos and participates in international competitions and shows. Back in 2014 her Artwork1 video recorded 12 290 100 views ! The success didn’t prevent her from visiting Landes and stop surfing and the Surf & Pole Dance weeks naturally came on the way.
First edition of Pole Dance & Surf (2015) !
