Giving Back

“travel with purpose”
We believe travel is more meaningful when you have a chance to GIVE BACK and leave the place a little better than you found it. At each of our locations we partner with a resort that is engaged with their local community, or a non-profit that is working hard to improve the lives of locals. BELOW ARE DETAILS ABOUT THE CAUSES AND ORGANIZATIONS WE SUPPORT AND WE HOPE TO CONTINUE SHINING A LIGHT ON THEse Cause at every retreat.

Waves of Hope

In Northern Nicaragua we partner with Waves of Hope, a Canadian based non-profit primarily focused on education that has constructed schools, built homes, and sponsors scholarship students. For each guest joining us on a retreat in Northern Nicaragua we have pledged to support one scholarship student for a month. Learn more here and here!


Sea Turtle Conservation

We also fully sponsor the Waves of Hope sea turtle conservation program. Sea turtle eggs are considered a delicacy leading to lots of issues with poaching. The program works to educate locals on the importance of protecting turtles. We fund the efforts to buy the eggs, collect them in a safely guarded hatchery, then release them after hatching to ensure generations of turtles to come. If you’re interested in helping us release the turtles, the hatching season is typically October to January.


Women in Sports

Surf With Amigas strongly believes in women’s empowerment and encouraging girls to get out and participate in spots. In Northern Nicaragua we help sponsor the local ladies kickball team, helping them with money for transportation to games and their end of season parties. Join us on a retreat to get a chance to high 5 the ladies after a super fun game of kickball!

Education in Costa Rica

In Costa Rica we have partnered with a local woman dedicated to assuring that all students have access to school books, even the indigenous community attending very remote schools. For each guest joining us on a retreat in Costa Rica, we fund access (purchase and delivery) to books for one student.
