Surf RetreatSouth, Costa Rica
A surf retreat for the ambitious and adventurous
A hidden treasure is what we call this surfer’s paradise of Costa Rica. At our surf retreat, the tides set the agenda for the days and we live and breathe surfing. Our oasis is within walking distance of the ocean and our favorite surf spot.
Improve your surfing in small groups
And with small groups, we mean small groups! You will not be more than two students per instructor in any of the surf lessons. It’s a great opportunity to progress in an environment where the local coach gives you more waves and more feedback than in a regular class! Combine that with perfect waves, an empty lineup, and a jungle as a backdrop – what more is there to wish for?Read more about our surf courses
What to expect
A surf adventure unlike the others
Here at our surf retreat, we make the most out of every moment. We wake up before the sun has risen over Costa Rica's beautiful jungle and we check the surf forecast. We grab some coffee, stretch and head out to surf the breaks as we watch the sunrise.
When we get out of the water it’s time to enjoy a healthy breakfast buffet with classic Costa Rican food, tropical fruits and smoothies.
We chill at the surf camp, analyzing the videos from the session and then we hit the waves for the second surf of the day.
In the afternoon you can practice yoga, do breathing exercises and enjoy the jungle around you. And maybe see a monkey or two!
You will surf at amazing surf spots, some well-known and some secret gems, where you will surf side by side with the local surfers and get to see the best southern Costa Rica has to offer.
It’s a unique experience for intermediate and advanced surfers who are not interested in the party scene (if you are looking for a party vibe then our Santa Teresa surf camp is the perfect place!), but prefer going to bed early to catch the day bright and early. Welcome to our home where we surf, sleep, Pura Vida and repeat!
The beach is our home. We are leaving it better than we found it.
We have made a commitment to our ocean, beaches and community. They are our playground, our home and our livelihood. We are going to leave them better than we found them. That means that all our employees, friends and guests helps out with recycling and taking other actions for the environment. Each week there are beach cleaning and recycling activities to ensure that our home stays the way it was supposed to be.
