Here’s our highlight video from the week of May 23rd. Enjoy!
The first week of March was the final retreat of our 2014 winter series. The Amigas got super lucky with an unseasonable solid swell that saw the point light up and some ladies pushing themselves to get the biggest/best waves of their lives! A bit of foreshadowing of the season to come… We start back up in Northern Nicaragua at the end of May. Check out the schedule tab for details!
At Surf With Amigas women’s surf and yoga retreat we focus on helping ladies of all abilities improve their skills. We get a lot of beginners who have never surfed before, and quite a few ladies with some experience who want to improve. Most participants ride longboards or funshapes in the 8′-9′ range. But, we do sometimes get some shortboarders. This week we had 3 shortboarders wanting to work on their skills and luckily we also had a nice swell which allowed us to get a few sessions in at the point.
It’s the rainy season which means slightly bigger waves. After a few warmup days at the bay the swell picked up even bigger and we took the Amigas out into waves that were a little larger than we normally like. The Amigas totally handled it. They trusted their instructors and went for it! Sometimes they went for it so hard that they rode all the way into the rocks. Fortunately everyone came up smiling and we had some great stories for later.
