This highlight video from a week in mid-February seems like a lifetime ago! Long before anyone had even considered the trials the world is currently facing, we were smiling and laughing on longboards in Southern Costa Rica.
We certainly hope that the current global pandemic will ease soon so we can all go back to smiling outside with friends. Until then, enjoy this video!
This highlight video is from a retreat in February. Sunny skies, super blue/green water, boat trips, horseback riding, incredibly long waves. Great food, chocolate making, gorgeous sunsets, guests of all ages and abilities improving their surfing in a supportive environment with awesome new friends.
How To Duck Dive Tutorial by the Coaching Staff at Surf With Amigas!
You’re probably spending a lot of time cooped up in your home right now thinking about surfing. Us too! Here in Costa Rica the beaches are officially closed. Enforcement has been spotty, but we’ve been trying to do the right thing and comply for the sake of the common good. We all know that surfing itself is not the problem, but we are doing our best to be respectful to the community and all stay home. Since we can’t give you hands on advice in person right now, we’re going through the files to find some older tutorials to share with you. Here’s the first in the series: How to Duck Dive! We may even make a few new ones! Stay tuned….
This is an older video, but still one of our most popular. Watch as Holly goes over everything you need to know about duck-diving: How to, how not to, and what it looks like underneath a wave.
We hope to be able to offer advice in person soon. Check our schedule page for upcoming retreats. For more super fun videos in the meantime, check out our Youtube channel where there is a ton of footage to get you stoked!
Here’s some behind the scenes info in case you’re interested…
We filmed the pool session in El Salvador about 7 years ago! Look for cameos by Jackie George and one of our past yoga teachers Cyd Gurvich. The underwater ocean footage was captured in the Philippines during the one season we did a couple of travel retreats to that gorgeous location.
If you have any ideas for future videos that you’d like to see addressed, please let us know in the comments on facebook, instagram, or via email!
Late January in southern Costa Rica means sunny skies and waves for days. We surf so much you’ll be totally exhausted and surfed out by the end of the week. Stay to the end to watch a zombie wax job by the very surfed out Jackie George. You don’t want to miss it! For more info on joining us, check out our Southern Costa Rica Eco Resort location!
Continuing to add new locations to our offering, this is a highlight video of our first ever retreat in Morocco. The ladies scored really fun user-friendly but also performance right hand waves and explored the culture of Morocco.
