WHAT TO EXPECT?
Tons of waves! I make it my personal mission to get you into as many waves as possible. Let’s face it if you’re not riding waves you’re not progressing.
The video coaching is key. Seeing yourself surf can be sobering but also extremely helpful. Our nightly video breakdows help me show you what your doing so you can take my tips and techniques and incorporate them into the next session.
In the water I pay close attention to each surfer. I rotate my time between everyone and help you make immediate adjustments. I’ll help you get waves and sometimes surf behind you instructing you on what to do.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
If you’re just starting out you’ll learn how to position yourself in the line up, perfect your pop-up and how to catch and ride every wave. You’ll leave with a foundation of knowledge and skills that will help you continue progressing into the future.
If you’re at the intermediate level we’ll work on things like perfecting your pop-up, learning to turn and positioning yourself in the line-up.
WHAT’S THE DEAL?
My partners and I are excited to offer a new retreat scheduling system to help you pick the dates that are most convenient for you and help us ensure you can commit to coming.
The reason we're doing this is because as you may or may not know in April of 2018 the people of Nicaragua and the government clashed when the Nicaraguan government tried to take away about 5% of the people’s social security. What started as peaceful protesting lead to clashes with the government. For those of us on the beach life went on as normal but tourism took a huge hit and many of our guest canceled last minute.
The country is back to normal but tourism has not been revived. I can assure you the country is safe for travelers who are flying into Managua or coming up from Costa Rica. We have an airport right on the beach where we stay that bring guest up from Liberia, Costa Rica.
I know what you're thinking and your right. Empty line-ups!! Well almost! There are surfers like you who are unfazed by this type of media coverage and interested in capitalizing on this opportunity.
What my partners and I have decided because of the lack of tourism is to offer these retreat to smaller groups of motivate surfers.
How many surfer per retreat? Max 6 surfers
What this means is that you become part of our family during your stay. We eat together, surf our brains out all day and share a few drinks and conversation in the evenings after video breakdowns.
What you’ll do is send us your availability and we’ll pool all other inquiries for your desired dates then choose a week that will beset accommodate everyone's schedule.
If you already have a group of six perfect. Let us know your dates and we’ll make it happen. If would like to bring a few more friends please feel free to inquire and we will do our best to accommodate everyone.
