Surf with Amigas

Balili Surfhouse

Surf with Amigas is the place for adventurous women to come together and encourage each other to fulfil their goals in surfing and in life. It’s about empowerment, creating connections, learning to attract awesome into your life, and living in the moment. Aside from the best individualised surf coaching available for ladies who have never surfed before up to those wanting to work on technical manoeuvres, there is also daily yoga and other adventures like volcano boarding and horseback riding on the beach. Retreats are primarily held in Nicaragua but we also feature locations in Panama and Costa Rica. The program was founded by professional surfer Holly Beck.
