July 22-29 will be our first ever exclusively advanced coaching clinic. It will be held simultaneously, at the same location, with our family friendly, co-ed, all levels retreat, but we will break the advanced surfers off into a separate group for surf sessions and activities. This session is open to guys as well. We will limit the advanced group to 8 surfers.
Skills we’ll focus on:
Since the retreat is open to all types of surfboards, some days we may be breaking up the group by board length, other days we’ll all surf together.
Short boarders will work on cutbacks, bottom turns, top turns, how to generate their own speed and possibly tube riding. We expect that attendees will already know how to duck dive, but we can work on tips to improve duck dive technique.
Long boarders will work on turns, generating speed, and possibly nose riding. Long boarders are also welcome to try out shorter boards.
We’ll stay at a spot that is centrally located to a variety of surf spots including a hollow beach break, reef breaks, and more gentle beach breaks. We’ll be driving and boating to most spots although there are a couple options within walking distance.
We’ll stay at a gorgeous ocean-front resort in North Nicaragua. Rooms have 2-3 beds and will be shared by 2-3 guests, although private room upgrades will be available. Rooms have Air Conditioning and private ensuite bathrooms. The resort features an awesome ocean view yoga studio, pool, and comfortable common area for lounging.
*We will be hosting our family friendly retreat at this same location at the same time. We will be sharing some meals (mostly dinners) and possibly yoga sessions with the other participants, but the resort is large enough to provide ample space for group separation.
The food is healthy, delicious, and can cater to any dietary needs/preferences.
