surfing LESSONS


Why Nicaragua?

Known for its consistent waves, averaging more than 330 days of offshore winds, and uncrowded beaches, the San Juan Del sur area of Nicaragua is home to some of the best surfing in Central America. The retreat will be during prime surf season, April through September.

Whether you are an avid surfer or you’ve never held a board, the surf spots we will be visiting are appropriate for all skill levels and are within a 10-minute drove from the resort. Here are some of the beaches that we will be visiting for surf lessons:

Personalized lessons from local experts


The surfing lessons will be led by experienced local surfers who have extensive knowledge of the local waves and wind patterns. Each lesson will be 1 to 2 hours long, and the instructors will break you into groups in order to accommodate different levels. For beginners, the first lesson will be on land, and the instructor will go over the basic elements for catching a wave. 

All board rentals are complementary, and you will have the opportunity to explore the waves on your own if you want to.

Professional photos available

As part of the retreat, you will have the opportunity to get professional photos taken while you are surfing or participating in the different fitness classes. These will be taken by a professional photographer and can be posted to your social media account.
