Many of the Amigas for our January 23rd retreat were escaping the cold hailing from places like Canada, Alaska and Vermont! The majority being first timers didn’t change the fact that we had created full frothing surf monsters by the end!
January 16th retreat highlights! Birthdays were celebrated and some bomb waves were ridden. The Amigas really came out of their comfort zone as the last several days of the retreat were met with some solid swell. Enjoy!
Good times in the surf, on the volcano, and all around northern nicaragua with the Surf With Amigas Surf Yoga Adventure Retreat.
Northern Nicaragua, the home of our primary surf retreat location, is an up and coming adventure tourism destination. Check out Matador Network‘s photo article of some of our beloved non-surfing adventures, namely, VOLCANO BOARDING! Article by Ben Adkison…
IN EARLY SEPTEMBER, I HAD the chance to hook up with northern Nicaragua ecotourism company Green Pathways to explore remote destinations in the northern section of Central America’s biggest country.
Many people come to this part of the country for surfing, but I quickly found out how many other adventures are possible in the area. Despite being the second-poorest country in the Americas, Nicaragua is touted as one of the safest, and I felt welcomed by everyone I met.
A quick little highlight video from our first retreat of the 2014 season. This is what a Surf With Amigas retreat looks like (or at least, here are a few awesome highlights). More to come!
Really, when it comes down to it, we’re all about having fun. Whether it’s cheering for new friends as they catch the best wave of their life, sharing a cold beer under an amazing sunset, racing down the beach on horseback, or dancing at the top of a volcano, we love to have a good time. This group just so happened to top the volcano boarding speed list with Jess from Western Australia scoring 72km/hr, and a bunch more Amigas in the above 50km category. Thankfully, no one was injured!
#2 on CNN’s “Thrill Seeker’s Bucket List”, volcano boarding is a crazy experience that will get your adrenaline pumping and give you lots of stories to tell friends at home. It’s just one of the awesome adventures that you’ll experience on a week with Surf With Amigas. Of course, there’s surfing too. Always surfing…
Come experience it!
It’s rough, tough, and kinda scary, but also one of the most empowering accomplishments to climb up one of central america’s most active volcanos, look over the edge, sit down on a wooden board, and slide down. Super fun!
