At Surf With Amigas women’s surf and yoga retreat we focus on helping ladies of all abilities improve their skills. We get a lot of beginners who have never surfed before, and quite a few ladies with some experience who want to improve. Most participants ride longboards or funshapes in the 8′-9′ range. But, we do sometimes get some shortboarders. This week we had 3 shortboarders wanting to work on their skills and luckily we also had a nice swell which allowed us to get a few sessions in at the point.
This week we had a big group of beginners who were getting some great waves on the inside whitewash. We feel that giving support and encouragement is one of the most important aspects of learning to surf and at Surf With Amigas Surf Yoga Retreat in Nicaragua there’s always tons of cheering, clapping, claiming, and high-fiving. This week there were also a lot of handstands going on. Super fun!
