Thanksgiving week in Nicaragua is always a good one for a surf yoga retreat. November is one of the best months of the year in Nicaragua. We have awesome weather, perfectly groomed waves, and plenty of sunshine.
This week we had a saucy fun group of ladies who were loving the surf yoga retreat dance parties. They enjoyed pool parties, volcano boarding, horseback riding on the beach, and all the other adventures that pop up during the week.
Many of our guests this week were returning Amigas. It’s always fun to reconnect and see improvement in their surfing. Not all of our retreats feature a lot partying, but this particular group was happy to put away a few rum shots here and there. Who can resist some rum-fueled synchronized swimming at sunset in such a gorgeous environment?
These retreats are all about empowerment, bonding, adventure, pushing yourself, and reviving your energy so that you go home ready to take on the world.
This video sums up all of the adventures that we offer during one of our womens surf yoga adventure weeks. We never seem to capture any footage of yoga since everyone is just enjoying and relaxing, but trust me there’s plenty of yoga too! This week included Halloween in case you were wondering about the face paint and costumes.
Always a good time!
At Surf With Amigas Surf Yoga Adventure Retreat for Women, we focus heavily on creating a culture of support and encouragement. When you get a great ride, or your first ride, or a big wipeout, the first thing you’ll hear is enthusiastic cheering from all your new Amigas! No matter what we are here to support you in achieving your goals. We’ll also give back to the local community, participate in a sea turtle protection program, do yoga, and have other awesome adventures.
This is the highlight video from the first week of November.
Surf with Amigas hosts retreats to improve your surfing whether you have never surfed before or are ready to work on more advanced maneuvers. Here’s the highlight video from our first ever advanced longboarding retreat featuring guest instructor 2xWorld Longboarding Champion Jen Smith. The ladies worked on cross stepping nose riding and style in some really awesome waves at our Northern Nicaraguan location.
Surf With Amigas surf and yoga teacher Cherise Richards takes us through some exercises and stretches that will help you prepare for your trip. Strengthen arms, core, legs, and back, then stretch them out to increase mobility so you’ll be more prepared to perform your best on day 1 of your retreat. Keep this program going after your trip to stay in shape back in the “real world” too! Check out the video!
We posted the video a couple of days ago with some suggestions on how to practice your tube riding from the comforts of solid land. An Amiga who will be joining us on our first tube riding clinic at the end of October was inspired and sent in this video of her on her skateboard riding under a conveniently “hollow” tree branch. We love it!
Our Southern Nicaragua retreat is a great one for ladies of all abilities. There are super cute user friendly waves to ride right out front and some more challenging waves for the more advanced surfers within walking distance. Check out our highlight video from the retreat in late July.
This retreat highlight video represents the best of Surf With Amigas all-level retreats. Our Northern Nicaragua location is open to all ability levels – whether it’s your first time touching a surfboard, or you’ve been surfing for years and want to take it to the next level, or just take a worry-free surf trip with other supportive ladies! This week was a particularly awesome mix of abilities which allowed us to break up the group so that everyone got the right amount of support and challenge.
In July we had our first ever dedicated Advanced Retreat in Northern Nicaragua. It included tons of surfing and lots of classroom sessions to help the Amigos become better surfers. Of course on top of the surfing and learning there were tons of other fun activities and true to any Surf With Amigas surf yoga adventure retreat, there was lots of dancing and silliness and fun! Click play for the highlight video!
Our first every dedicated advanced retreat was a success! There are so many awesome photos and videos that we’ll be uploading them little by little. See below from some of the highlights from the first couple of days as the Amigas were just getting used to their boards and the new spots. After several days of coaching, they took it to the next level… we’ll be posting those photos next! Stay tuned.
If these waves look good to you, join us on one of our upcoming advanced retreats! All of our retreats are open to all levels and we have instructors available to coach advanced surfers every week. But these dedicated advanced retreats include more classroom sessions and more time spent surfing (vs. other activities). Check out the schedule here: Advanced Surf Coaching Retreats
