You will be staying at Beach Break Surf Camp. Beach Break Hotel is located in the heart of Playa Venao directly on the beach. It is a surfer heaven as you open the door of your room. Just take a few steps and watch the waves.It is not only a prime location, but Beach Break Surf Camp is the perfect unpretentious place to stay, with clean air-conditioned rooms, hot showers, a beautiful pool, a brand new indoor surf / yoga / jiu jitsu training facility, and an excellent restaurant.



Get ready to spend time in the water. Whether you are a new surfer, beginner, or intermediate; this retreat is all about surfing. Through theory, analysis, and most importantly: practice, you will leave this place as a real surfer.

Surf coaching

First timer or already hooked, get ready to spend time in the water! As a surfer, your schedule will be organized around the tide and waves. Practice is key, as surfing is based on learning through experience. At Ride The Wave, the goal is to make sure you leave with the knowledge necessary to be a good surfer.

The theory lessons will cover all the aspects of surfing including: swell forecasts, wave reading, safety, surfboard design, surfing rules, etiquette, terms, and more. Every lesson in the water will be photographed or filmed and then used during the video analysis sessions to highlight where you can improve.

  • 5 times 2-hour surf lessons
  • 2 surf theoretical classes
  • 3 video analysis
  • Surfboard rental
  • 1 surf workout

Yoga and meditation

Surf, yoga, and meditation are the perfect complements to get yourself mentally and physically prepared to face the ocean and the waves. Take a break and learn how to connect with your body.

Surfing is an incredibly demanding sport. Your body and mind need to be in great shape if you’re learning and going to spend a long time in the water. It requires high levels of strength, flexibility, and mobility as well as excellent balance, coordination, and body control.

The surf inspired yoga sessions will stretch, work, and recover your surfing muscles optimizing your physical and mental performance. Meditation will clear your head and get you through frustrating moments in your learning journey.

  • 4 yoga and meditation classes
  • 1 surf workout


Yewww! It’s the main cheer! Wake up in paradise, activate your body with a yoga session, eat well, watch the waves, and jump in. Get ready to alter your daily routine to one that is wind and tide dependent. When the waves roll in, everything else becomes secondary.

Social connections

Adventures mean so much more when they are shared! You are going to have an experience where you will make lifelong connections with the people you will meet during the retreat.


Every day, the schedule will be announced and published during dinner. As Playa Venao is really tide dependent and surfing will always be the priority, you will pick the best time to be in the water and then work around it with the other activities.

To give you an idea of a typical day in paradise:

  • 08:00 Breakfast
  • 10:00 Surf (2 hours)
  • 12:00 - 15:00 Free time
  • 15:00 Surf theory and video analysis

Playa Venao has one of the most consistent breaks worldwide making surfing possible year round and excellent waves that vary in size from very small to the large and famous break “La Punta”.

The entire bay has a sand bottom which makes it an easy walk to the waves and beginner friendly.
