I just returned from one of my favorite trips ever- learn to surf or perfect your skills with the amazing instructors here- they are patient and persistent and help you every step of the way, so it is unintimidating. Plus, they videotape every wave you catch so you can really see what you are doing right or wrong to improve....

Best surf camp ever! The surf instructors were amazing by the end of the week all the women were surfing and catching waves. One the first day Holly was out surfing with me giving me individual pointers and tips. Yoga was perfect for restoring you to surf another wave. Coco Loco was a beautiful location; and the food was unbelievable....

An amazing retreat to learn how to surf and to experience all that northern Nicaragua has to offer from beautiful beaches to volcano boarding. If you are considering a surf retreat, I highly recommend this one. Great conditions and coaching translated into an incredibly fun learning environment.

If you’re considering booking a retreat with Surf with Amigas, do it!! This trip was so incredible! Every part of it! First of all, I was the least experienced with surfing and the coaches and the amazing girls I met were so helpful and encouraging! There’s coaching in the water, coaching on land and videos to review after each surf...

Trip: Nicaragua Magnific Rock October 1st/8th 2016 I typically do not write reviews or am much of social media person, however I felt "Surf with Amigas" more than deserved an excellent review!

You're reading this review wondering if you should book, right? Undoubtedly, you should! You're questioning your age, your surf skills, and your apprehension to composting toilets perhaps? Well, the Surf with Amigas and Coco Loco experience does not disappoint. When you find yourself after second breakfast forgetting what day of the week it is, and you're wondering how many days...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Surf With Amigas is Nicaragua's only women's surf and yoga retreat where women can come together as group of amigas and learn to surf or improve their surfing under the guidance of a professional surfer, namely Holly Beck. Holly was on the world tour for years until deciding a few years ago that she wanted to settle down in Nicaragua and share the surf stoke with other amigas. Along with her amazing staff and awesome beachfront resort in northern Nicaragua, Holly has created a unique experience that many women have called the best of their lives. What sets Surf With Amigas apart from other women's surf retreats you might encounter? 1) Holly's surf-coaching, both in the water and with daily video-captured sessions and slow motion analysis of all your waves; 2)the uncrowded waves of northern Nicaragua- we have spots to ourselves unlike southern Nica; 3) our beachfront resort is awesome! Come find out for yourself! ... more   less

“eco-lodging: minimal lighting & water pressure, composting toilets. Larger cabana (with largest porch): 3 beds instead of 2; that's where I stayed. Fans add noise. Camped 2 nights in elevated yoga studio with cooler breeze, especially early morning--a pleasant change.”
