It’s fun to have guys participate in retreats sometimes. A few times of year we host co-ed, couple’s and family retreats and it’s awesome to switch up the energy with different types of participants. This week was a super fun mix of people all sharing their love for surfing and the ocean. We scored some fun waves at the long left point breaks right in front of our Longboard Surf House.
After a few months off, Surf With Amigas returned to Nicaragua for a super fun retreat at our old home base. We scored great conditions and really fun waves for all levels. It was an incredibly frothy week with horseback galloping, dancing by local ladies, kickball with the local friends, and tons of good waves. We’ve got more Nicaragua retreats on our schedule for Fall 2019. Come play!

Boat trips, smooth glassy waves, and a bunch of ladies excited to ride them, this was an awesome week! If you want to have an incredible adventure with other like minded Amigas, come join us on a retreat in Southern Costa Rica.
Several times per year we host co-ed friendly/couple’s retreats. We love the all-women’s vibe but it’s also nice to mix it up and have some guy energy around. This particular week scored all time surf that was really uncrowded. Stoked!

Carrie McGowan came on her first SWA retreat in 2017. She hadn’t been on a surfboard in about a decade and was essentially starting from scratch. That first retreat she started out in the whitewater, just re-learning to stand on the board. Carrie quickly became an addict, joining us every few months to take her surfing to the next level. Each retreat she showed big surfing progression! Her most recent trip was in January to our
Two time World Longboard Champ Jen Smith joined us on two retreats in early 2019 as a guest instructor. She inspired all the ladies with her super stylish nose riding and also technical surf knowledge. Here’s the highlight video from the week.
2XWorld Longboard Champ Jen Smith came down to Costa Rica to be head coach on a couple of advanced longboarding retreats. She leant her expertise and demonstrated immaculate style.
