About The Teacher


When someone asks him today what he does for a living, Hippo smirks. “I tell them I surf for a living, but it’s a little more complicated than that. I explain I’m scouring swell forecasts every day to look for the biggest waves I can find… then I go and surf them.” Hippo has earned his rep the hard way, travelling the world for over a decade chasing huge surf. He’s tackled giant Jaws, caught trophy waves at Cloudbreak, pioneered a handful of the world’s most dangerous slab waves, and twice been a finalist in the XXL Big Wave Awards.

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
