Super long glassy lefts and rights, ladies of all levels getting the longest waves of their lives surfing with amigas in southern Costa Rica. This is one of the last retreats we ran in the beginning of March before COVID changed the world. We can’t wait to get back to this lifestyle! Be sure to stay tuned for the hilarious wipeout section!

We aren’t sure when we’ll be able to get back to running retreats, but as soon as we can we will let you all know! Thanks for your support.

SWA Community Raises More Than $2000 for Local Partners

To say we’re thrilled would be an understatement

The Surf With Amigas community just raised over $2,000 in less than 48 hours to support all of our local partners in Southern Costa Rica while they are out of work due to the COVID-19 situation.

We’ll admit that we were hesitant to put out a fundraiser in the first place, knowing that so many of us are struggling financially, but we also realized it wouldn’t hurt to try and see what happens. We’re extremely excited about the success of the fundraiser and how the SWA community has come together to support these deserving folks that we all know and love. However, we’re not surprised that you all rallied to show your support- the SWA community is full of big hearts and the best surf ladies out there.

Hotel Staff (and their surf instructors)

We want to give a BIG thank you to everyone who has been able to donate, and another thank you to everyone who is holding this special group of people in your hearts! If you’re interested in reading the story that inspired this fundraiser or interested in donating, please click here.

 

As always,

Pura Vida!

 

 

We Love Party Waves

Hey Shredders! If you’re like us, you know that the only thing more fun than riding a wave solo, is to share it with a friend. If you happen to surf in a crowd regularly, maybe you want to team up with your friends and work on your party waves. Here is a selection of party waves from our staff over the last couple of months to give you some ideas! Enjoy!

The Last Retreat Before the Quarantine

Here are some highlights from our very first retreat fully taking over the longboard surf house for what had planned to be the whole season. We had an awesome group of 12 ladies of all ages from early 20s to 50s! This was the last retreat that we were able to run before the COVID-19 situation closed borders and had us all sheltering in place. It’s awesome to look back on a sunny, surf-filled happy time with friends and dream of the time we’ll be able to enjoy this sort of thing!
