SURFSET Fitness Turtle Mural on wall with waves

Thank you for surfing with us!

After 8 years, it’s finally time to say goodbye.

First of all, I think it’s important to state upfront that this is a very positive, happy goodbye. We’ve met so many people through the years, and many of them have formed into long-lasting friendships.

Like any journey, we’ve had our fair shares of ups and downs. And like most journeys, it inevitably and naturally comes to an end.

We’ve taken the time to reminisce about our beginnings – our favourite turtle motif on the wall of our Joo Chiat studio, to participating in events and toiling with the logistics of our boards. We’re grateful to all the people – clients, instructors, vendors, and partners – who have taken time to engage with us, even if it’s just a 10 minute session on Siloso beach.

To our instructors over the years, I thank you for helping lift up our standards, and our clients’ lives.

To our valued clients who have placed their trust in us to deliver results to something as personal as health and fitness, we hope we’ve done something you can be proud of.

To all our vendors and associates, thank you for supporting us.

And as we think about the end, we can’t help but think about all the things to be grateful for, and all the things to look forward to.

Until next time,


SURFSET Virtual Classes

How have you been working out during this period?

We’ll admit that we haven’t been active during these few months, with all the closures of businesses and venues. OCBC Arena is still closed till now.

Many of our clients have been asking us when we’ll be back, and with regards to the studio at OCBC Arena, we still don’t know.

However, we’re back virtually!

We have started virtual classes to bring the surf to the comfort of your home. We’ll be working out with our unique, surf-inspired style, but without the SURFSET boards.

Our programmes are designed to work your body, build your core, and challenge yourself. While the SURFSET boards add the element of balance and ramps up the intensity, we’ve been testing off-board sessions to great feedback and results. What you’ll find is a challenging workout that can elevate your heart rate and burn whatever GrabFood calories you’ve ordered.

You can sign up by checking the class schedules here, and by signing up using your MindBody accounts, or simply texting us on WhatsApp.

How it works

Once you’re signed up, you’ll get details of the class including the links to access the video conference. We use Zoom, which I think by now many people are familiar with.

Simply join the call 5 minutes before the class time, and get moving.

What you need

  • A screen, with Zoom installed, to see your instructor (laptop, iPad, tablet). Phones can work but their screens are small, so you may have difficulty seeing the instructor.
  • An internet connection
  • An exercise mat
  • Sufficient space to move around
  • A way for the instructor to see you is highly recommended, so he or she can comment and work on your form and movements

At any rate, you can clarify your questions and concerns with us through WhatsApp!

Rent a board

We’ve also had people asking us if we can rent out the boards and conduct virtual, on-board classes. Let’s just say that this is an ongoing project that we’re looking to launch! Stay tuned!

Continued Closure of OCBC Arena, Sports Hub

Despite the reopening of many venues following Singapore’s entry into Phase Two, we remain closed.

As OCBC Arena is being used as a venue to house migrant workers, the area is closed to the public until further notice. This means that our SURFSET and other classes will not be able to run. There’s still no timeline given to us regarding the safe reopening of the venue, but we’ll keep you informed as we get any updates along the way.

Our clients’ safety has always been our top priority, so we encourage all of you to stay safe and avoid heading out anyway.

In the meantime, we have started offering virtual classes! Do show your support by joining us.

Stay safe!
