Step out of the routine and explore new emotions

We believe that challenging yourself through sports makes you feel free and happy!

We invite you to step out of usual surroundings, dive into tropical nature and practice new sports in interaction with the elements.

We will teach you in the most fun and safe way possible, guide you on exciting tours around the paradise island of Mauritius and share our passion, experience and knowledge.

The expression "hang loose" has Hawaiian roots and stands for a chilled, easy going and laid back attitude. Our aim is to show and share with you this lifestyle, by combining sport and leisure activities in the authentic surf way.
