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.
Surf With Amigas Surf and Yoga retreats are about coming together, supporting each other and having the best time ever. Sunset cocktails, galloping down the beach on horses, and party waves with a GoPro, are just some of the adventures you can expect. It’s so much fun.
How to Catch more waves with the Coco Chanel Paddle
Everyone knows the Coco Chanel logo right? The two interlocking Cs are not just a sign of luxury, but also a great way to paddle. If you want to have the most efficient paddle technique you need to increase the length of your stroke. Paddling in the shape of a C achieves that. If you use the Coco Chanel Paddle you’ll be covering more distance faster. That means more waves and fewer turtle rolls! This video will take you through some things to do and others to avoid to improve your paddle skills and have you catching more waves!
Why it’s best to learn to surf from women
At Surf With Amigas, we take a humorous approach to teaching surf skills. You’ll learn to turn with your boobs and to avoid paddling like a T-Rex. You’ll also hear that you should paddle like the Coco Chanel logo. Come learn and laugh with us! That’s the difference of a surf camp run by women!

The spot we surf in Northern Nicaragua for our women’s surf yoga retreats is ideal for improving your longboarding skills. This particular week in mid December 2017 had awesome super long lefts and rights that were great for all surfing levels. Some ladies were working on just standing up for the first time, while others were working on cross-stepping and trying to nose ride. No matter your current ability, we will individualize our coaching to make sure you get the help you need to achieve your goals.
Of course it’s not all about surfing. We also offered daily restorative yoga sessions, played kickball with local ladies, hiked and then boarded down a volcano, and enjoyed the gorgeous scenery of Nicaragua.
Check out the video highlights from the week!
