Family Friendly Surf Retreat in Costa Rica

We love family surf retreats!

It’s so fun to share the joy of the ocean with the next generation of little surfers. If you have kids that you want to get into surfing, bringing them to warm water waves with an easy channel for paddling out is the best way to do it! SWA founder Holly Beck has two kids that she’s been surfing with and has honed a program for getting kids up and riding that she wants to share with other parents! Older kids riding their own boards get to benefit from all the in water help as well as video coaching that the adults enjoy.

Check out the highlight video above from our first family friendly retreat in Costa Rica. This week we had kids from age 1-12 join us along with their parents and a few friends on a week of surfing, yoga, chocolate making, horseback riding and dance parties. It was so fun that we immediately put a couple more family retreats on the schedule.

Family Surf Retreat

Now that I have kids, and my 3.5 year old has started surfing, I’m getting really excited about hosting more family surf retreats. There’s nothing more fun than sharing the love of surfing with family. Seeing your little one’s eyes light up and that full face smile as they ride a wave alongside you is every bit as fulfilling as getting an amazing wave yourself – or so I’ve come to believe.

Instructors Silliness in Bocas Del Toro

Faced with a two week break, a few of the Surf With Amigas instructors adventured over to Bocas Del Toro, Panama for a little surf adventure. Here’s a quick little behind the scenes look at their trip. There is unfortunately no surfing footage because none of them wanted to sit on the beach and film (not surprising). If you happen to know any of these girls I think you’ll find it hilarious.
