Holistic Surf Coaching Retreats

SWA founder Holly Beck has recently earned her Master’s in Counseling degree and is stoked to offer a more holistic approach to surf coaching and retreats. SWA is partnering with Groundswell Community Project to create Holistic Surf Coaching Retreats!

WHAT IS A HOLISTIC SURF COACHING GROUNDSWELL + SWA RETREAT?

THE GOAL WITH OUR HOLISTIC SURF COACHING RETREATS IS TO SUPPORT YOU IN DEVELOPING A SUSTAINABLE SURF PRACTICE ROOTED IN SELF LOVE, SEA LOVE AND SISTERHOOD.

DURING THESE RETREATS, OUR TEAM WILL ASSIST YOU IN ACHIEVING YOUR SURFING GOALS BY APPROACHING SURF COACHING FROM A HOLISTIC STANDPOINT. THIS INCLUDES EVALUATING SELF-TALK, LEARNING EMOTIONAL REGULATION TOOLS AND COPING MECHANISMS, ALONGSIDE PHYSICAL SURFING ASPECTS LIKE FOOT PLACEMENT, EYE-LINE, WAVE AND BOARD SELECTION.

IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT LEARNING TO BECOME A BETTER SURFER, BUT A MORE PRESENT, AWARE, COMPLETE SURFER, BOTH IN AND OUT OF THE WATER.

Groundswell + SWA Retreats are facilitated by licensed clinicians and surf coaches that create a safe space for you to challenge yourself towards deeper self-awareness and understanding in the lineup as well as back on land. 

Holistic Surf Coaching is for all surf experience-levels. Each retreat combines somatic mindfulness practices, yoga/meditation, journal prompts, SWA’s highest standard of surf coaching, community engagement to support local women’s health and ocean health, and unforgettable adventures that will bond you with your new life-long Amigas.

Our trauma-informed instructors are here to support you in building the skills for working with trauma, anxiety, triggers, grief and mental blocks in the waves and back on land to enhance your relationship with self, others and the earth. We believe that surfing mother oceans waves is a powerful tool for reclaiming your feelings of empowerment and belonging and can not wait to paddle out with you!


What the difference from a typical Surf With Amigas Retreat? More mindfulness + embodied practices to further support you – alongside our usual awesome surf coaching and adventures!
