Laguna Beach, California – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
This fall, Montage Laguna Beach, California, is offering beach lovers the chance to ride the waves with surf legends Pat O’Connell and Jon Rose.
The exclusive ‘Surf with a legend’ package, in partnership with Hurley International, offers guests at Montage Laguna Beach a day catching waves while learning from two of the sport’s greatest.
Pat O’Connell rose to stardom in the cult surfing move The Endless Summer. Released in 1966, the documentary-style film followed two surfers around the world in search of the biggest waves and new surfing territory, and became a seminal surf movie.
Jon Rose is a professional surfer and founder of the Waves for Water, a non-profit organisation which aims to provide clean water to communities in need around the world.
The unique package provides a weekend retreat of sun, sea and surf and includes a two-night stay at the luxury island resort of Montage Laguna Beach. Perched high on a coastal bluff it has access to some of the best of the island’s pristine, white sand beaches and has received awards for its accommodation.
The surf outing with Pat O’Connell and Jon Rose comes with a boxed lunch provided, prepared by the resort, and ends with an intimate cocktail reception and barbeque with the two surf stars prepared by Chef Rob Wilson. A daily breakfast credit of $50 and transport to and from the beaches are provided by the hotel and the package also comes with a commemorative Hurley H20 bag and tickets to Hurley Pro to watch the surf professionals in action.
Taking place September 14th-16th, 2012, places for the retreat package are limited to 12 people and are sure to prove popular for surfing enthusiasts. Ten percent of all proceeds will benefit Jon Rose’s Waves for Water foundation.
