As an instructor, it’s really fun to surf with a group that is fearless, willing to listen to instruction, and just go for it! We started out with 3 ladies in the whitewash on day 1, but by day 2, they were all outside trying to catch green waves. Everyone was super stoked, which makes our jobs as instructors so easy! Check them out shredding!
This is how we do it. We take a really cool group of people, bring them to perfect waves in warm water, mix in fast horses, great food, plenty of friendly support, alcoholic beverages, relaxing mind-healing yoga, then mix well and serve up with video evidence. This is what a Surf and Yoga Retreat should look like. We like to have fun!
At Amigas Surf & Yoga Retreats we appreciate a good wipeout as much as we appreciate a great ride. Every year we compile all the wipeout footage and create a contest for best wipeout. The year has just started and there will surely be more, but here are the first two solid contenders for Best Wipeout for the 2012/2013 season!
Rachel is into dog sledding and Christine is a mountain biker from Calgary. Neither had ever surfed before coming on a retreat but both picked it up quickly. Unfortunately, the waves were pretty big towards the end of the week but they had mastered the whitewash and wanted to explore the outside. I am super proud of them for going for it!
Melissa is famous. She’s so famous that she needs to keep a low profile sometimes. For these reasons we cannot tell you her last name or exactly who she works for, but let’s just say she is a super hot, super talented Amiga and we’re honored to now call her a friend. She came down for a week of surf and yoga and scored on big waves, fast horses, and extreme volcano boarding.
