Surf With Amigas Supported Projects Need Some Extra Help

Giving Back

Surf With Amigas believes in giving back to the communities where we live, love, and surf with our guests.

We have been funding baby sea turtle conservation programs in Nicaragua and Costa Rica for many years. Our funds contribute to turning potential poachers into conservationists, assuring that sea turtle nests are not raided by people wanting to eat or sell the eggs, but that eggs are transferred to a safe hatchery, assuring the best chance of success for the little turtles.

Starting last year, Surf With Amigas has supported a therapeutic arts program for Costa Rican children and adults. In a community where there are not any extracurricular activities available, having an opportunity to spend some time in a safe space, exploring art with an encouraging teacher has contributed to an increase in self-esteem and feeling of well-being. This program is especially important now that schools are shut down.

Our partners are asking for our continued support of these worthy programs, but unfortunately since we are not able to host any retreats right now we don’t have the extra funds to do it. We are reaching out to ask if any of our awesome Amigas have a little extra to help in this time. Luckily, a little goes a long way down here.

We know and love these organizations and know that 100% of the money generated will go directly to these projects. Thank you so much for your continued support!

Supporting Local Children Through Art

giving back with local kids in Costa Rica

At Surf With Amigas, we are always looking for constructive ways to engage with the communities where we host retreats. Whether it’s funding sea turtle conservation, donating school books to indigenous children, giving scholarships for higher education, or encouraging women to participate in sports by sponsoring a local ladies kickball team, we feel good about giving back wherever we are.

In this case, we have become friends with an amazingly inspiring woman named Hadas, who owns a vegetarian cafe and surf view cabanas as her day job, and offers art classes to kids and adults to feed her passion for art. She runs an open art studio called De Colores in Pavones, Costa Rica. It is dedicated to promoting well being and deep healing through the creative process of art making. That’s a goal we can get behind! 

We are so happy to donate funds to support free art classes for local children to explore and express themselves through color, textures, and the allowance to get messy!

Here are a few photos from a recent class.

By supporting us, you are supporting her, and thereby supporting them. Thank you!
