    - Which campervans can I bring to the festival with a van life ticket?

    There is no maximum size or any further restrictions about the campervan you can bring to the festival. However, you cannot bring a trailer. This means no caravans because you have to deal with the car as well, which is really space inefficient. It does not matter how many people sleep in a van - everybody needs a full weekend ticket though. Some camping spots have electricity, this has to be shared with the other people on the same spot. This cannot be reserved beforehand.

    - How are my camping spots booked for the festival?

    Unless you have booked a specific camping option with Camping De Lakens the camping spots are served on a first come first serve basis. There are no pre reservations made.

  • About Surfana

    Surfana is a surf and goodlife collective founded in the summer of 2007. The motivation of the collective is based on a desire to live a life based on love, passion and freedom. This goodlife ideology soon took flight which resulted in more members & several surf schools, camps and surf trips around the world. In 2013 it was time to celebrate and the first official Surfana Festival edition became a fact!

  • What is Surfana Festival?

    Surfana is a surf and goodlife collective founded in the summer of 2007. It started as a surfschool in Zandvoort but soon a second surfschool in Vlieland, a camp in Bloemendaal and an intimite surftrip company joined the collective. It is our philosophy to live happily, to enjoy life to the utmost – and to share our lifestyle with others. Our success is simply based on a combination of surf and sport activities on the one hand, and a healthy lifestyle around nature on the other. Located near the beach and the beautiful dunes of the National Park Zuid-Kennemerland, here people will be able to enjoy a simple lifestyle among other people who share that same vibe! In 2013 we decided to create an event that reflects the whole Surfana ideology. Surfana Festival was born. Here we’ve brought together al our love and passion into a one-weekend experience of pure goodlife.. It is a festival to celebrate our lifestyle but also to inspire more people to choose a life based on happiness instead of work.

    Being a surf festival, not only is it possible to swim in the ocean, there are also a plethora of water based clinics and activities to get involved in, and we encourage it!

There will be a number of trained life guards on the beach throughout the day (not at night) but swimming is totally at your own risk and we take no responsibility if injury may befall you. Be safe, be smart, do not exceed your abilities if you're not comfortable.

    We want to be a safe space for all ages and create a fun program for everyone. Moving the minimum age helps us with that. As we build up a whole kids program and also want all kids to roam free and have fun on site we wanted to put some extra effort in this year's kids program and the quality of it. This is only one of the reasons next to hard years with cancellations and refunds with Corona that made us move the minimum age for kids tickets from 13 to 6 years. I really hope that you can also feel this on site and when you have a look at our program. Check it out here.
