The women's surf camp is hosted at the Funky Monkey Lodge in Santa Teresa. Nestled in the jungle and a two-minute walk to the beach, the Funky Monkey Lodge is a beautiful rustic privately owned hotel, with individual bungalows, a swimming pool for you to enjoy and a central restaurant where the groups gather for meals. You will love the sound of the howler monkeys in the trees, the sound of tropical birds when the sun rises, and the waves crashing in the distance.
Professional certified surf instructors will teach you how to do your first pop up and even how to catch your own waves. Lessons are designed for all levels of surfing, beginner through advanced. The staff will create a safe and fun environment for you to learn to surf in and practice the skilled you've gained. The surf lessons have two or three students per surf instructor.
You will be taking your skills to the next level every day. The instructors will be teaching you not only basic skills, but surf etiquette, water safety, paddling techniques, how to read waves, and how to improve your skills for those of you who have surf experience already. Feel free to bring your own board from home but there are many boards available for you to choose from. When you are not scheduled for a surf lesson, you can grab a board anytime and go practice.
The beauty of adding yoga classes to a surf retreat is that it allows us to stretch and condition the muscles you are working on throughout the week. Experience an all levels Shakti flow class at Pranamar Villas, yoga inspired hotel in Playa Hermosa, and find the yogi within. All yoga classes are held in open air studios; hear the waves, birds, and jungle noises as you calm your senses.
Add on additional yoga classes and try a variety of classes available around town like Hatha Flow, Kundalini, even Yin Yoga. Set your mind free and do some sun salutations on the beach at sunrise or sunset.
