Here’s the highlight video for our second retreat in October 2015 in El Salvador. The waves were a bit smaller but still had plenty of size and we had some serious shredders. Watch the girls handle well overhead waves with style. Plus pool antics, ping pong, and plenty of dancing.
El Salvador is probably the most challenging location that Surf With Amigas frequents. Sunzal is a swell magnet so any bit of swell produces well overhead waves. This week we had solid swell the entire time and the Amigas had to overcome fear to rise to the challenge.
Enjoy the highlights video from our second October surf yoga adventure retreat in El Salvador. There were some super long rides where Amigas were learning to do cutbacks on longboards and a lot of dancing. Come surf with us in El Salvador in October/November 2015.

On this retreat in El Salvador we had a solid crew of shortboarders who wanted to explore some nearby waves. Our instructors Michelle and Kim Mayer were more than happy to show them a wave just down the beach called La Bocana. In case you think Surf With Amigas is just for longboarders, here’s some evidence that shortboarders are more than welcome!
The El Salvador retreats are geared for advanced beginners and intermediate surfers. This week we had a good mix of shortboarders and longboarders. While the shortboard shredders chose to walk down the beach to a different break, the longboarders cruised right out front for some really nice rides.
Join us in October in El Salvador to get in on this!
We’re finally getting through all the incredible footage captured a few weeks ago on the first of our two El Salvador advanced beginner/intermediate retreats. Watch for more videos of the surf action and silliness to be dropping soon, but here’s the highlight reel.
We will be heading back to El Salvador in October/November 2015 and these retreats filled up super fast this year. If you’re interested in getting in on the action next year send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the list!
Every now and then we get a solid group of shortboard shredders on a retreat that allows us to break off into a smaller group and get some serious shredding done. Here’s a group of frothers in El Salvador exploring a rivermouth just south of the main retreat location.
Every year in October we pack up our surfboards and head to El Salvador for two weeks of shredding at the amazing, super long, super fun wave of Sunzal. Check out this video for a quick little tour of the spot we’ll stay, the wave we’ll surf, and some of the other activities. Join the Amigas in El Salvador to improve your surfing, ride super long waves, do yoga, and adventure!

We are excited to announce that pro surfer, organic farmer, and all around awesome human Kim Mayer will be attending the October El Salvador retreats as the pro surfer coach in 2014.
Kim Mayer shredding in Ecuador
Holly and Kim spent years traveling the world together for competitions and photo shoots. According to Holly, “Kim Mayer is probably one of the coolest people on the planet. She’s always stoked, always positive, jams on the guitar, kills it with a soccer ball, is up for any adventure, is the one most likely to make friends with every random person she comes across, plus she totally rips at surfing!”
Since Holly will have a brand new baby by the time October rolls around, travel to El Salvador isn’t feasible. Luckily Kim is available and excited to fill in.
For more about Kim Mayer and to witness her awesomeness, check out the videos below:
This morning we start day 1 of our season of retreats in Nicaragua, but here’s another look at last month’s trip to El Salvador. We’ll be heading back to El Sal again next year, so if you aren’t already, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be added to our mailing list if you want to join in!
This is what a Surf With Amigas women’s surf and yoga retreat looks like in El Salvador. We surf, hang out, and play in gorgeous waterfalls. So fun!
