Now accepting deposits for our annual Southern Nicaragua retreat!
July 19-26 2014 join Surf With Amigas for a week of all day offshore-winds, super cute green waves, yoga with an incredible view, and other adventures! You’ll stay in apartments with floor to ceiling windows over-looking the break, enjoy three deliciously healthy meals a day plus snacks, and have every session captured on video and analyzed to help you improve faster!
If you know how to ride whitewash but want to learn how to ride a green wave, or know how to drop in but want to learn how to angle, or can do all that but want to cutback – this is the perfect retreat for you! There are 2 surf spots directly in front of where we’ll stay – a fun right good for intermediate surfers, and a super user-friendly left great for beginners. The world-famous Popoyo break is just a 10 min walk down the beach for anyone who wants to check that out too! In the South, the wind is offshore all day 90% of the time, so we’ll surf at least twice a day until your arms are complete noodles!
Check out what a past group of retreat ladies had to say about the spot, and why you shouldn’t second guess your decision to come! As Kristin said, “Just do it! Because I’m glad I came and had another adventure in my life!”

After a few months off and a few retreats in El Salvador, the Amigas are back in Nicaragua for the dry season. The week of November 9th kicked off the new season with an awesome group of Amigas who were completely shredding in the water, upside down on the sand, and racing on horseback.
We are so blessed to have Nikki Belcher as our yoga teacher at Surf With Amigas. She is gorgeous inside and out, has a calming, healing presence, and inspires a restorative practice. There was so much prana/energy at the waterfall in the cloud forest that Nikki decided to do a little free flow sequence.
This is an adventure that takes place in July in Northern Nicaragua as a group of Amigas on a Womens Surf Yoga and Adventure retreat learn to surf and outrun a lightning storm on horseback. You may have seen the photos but the video tells the true story.
Drop a jalapeno rum shot into a glass of club soda then drink it down. Hike to the top of an active volcano, put on an orange jumpsuit, and boogie it up before sliding down. Paddle out to super cute overhead waves, admire the pelicans, paddle in, and charge down!
This is how we do it! It’s not just about surfing, it’s about enjoying every minute with a new set of awesome Amigas!
You’ve heard the word gnarly but what does it mean? If you come on a retreat with Surf With Amigas you’ll hear “gnarly” used quite a bit. It can be good, it can be bad, it can be awesome! Here’s a little tutorial on what to expect if someone tells you Surf With Amigas women’s surf and yoga retreats are “gnarly!”
At the end of retreats, we usually pick a few ladies and ask them their favorite experience of the week. Was it the surfing, the horseback riding, the opportunity to share awesome adventures with new like-minded friends? Of course it’s usually all of those things, but this week Kara summed it up in a way that I hadn’t imagined, but really like. She said, “Every day there’s an opportunity to overcome fear.”
A lot of ladies come down with a fear of the ocean, horseback riding, or volcano boarding, but with the support of eachother and the staff at Surf With Amigas you end up feeling totally empowered, bad ass, and like you can do anything! That’s our goal!
Nikki Belcher has been teaching yoga for Surf With Amigas for a few months now and she is awesome. She is very spiritual, in touch with the moon, and just exudes a calming healing energy. She has recently learned to surf, so she understands the mindset necessary to overcome fear of the ocean and big waves, and also the right yoga moves to stretch out tired paddling muscles.
She also has a new website called the Fairy Lounge.
Nikki Belcher is a yoga teacher at Surf with Amigas who also surfs and understands the right yoga moves to stretch out tired surfing muscles. Here she shows us a good stretch to open up your shoulders which end up super tight from so much paddling.
