The surf lessons were built from the best practices of highly-regarded surf schools in France and of the International Surfing Association. Your “surf passport” booklet allows you to keep track of your lessons and helps you remember what you learned every day during the surf trip such as take-offs, turns, balance, duck dive, wave reading, safety, surf etiquette, and a lot more.
You will be assisted by experienced coaches that speak English and French and by local surf coaches that speak English and Spanish. There will be a maximum of three students in the water per coach for a safe experience. Depending on surf conditions, the ratio can go two-to-one or one-on-one.
Surf boards rental are included for all levels, beginner to advanced. The best way to learn to surf is to experience with a variety of boards.
I started surfing in 2008 during a trip to Morocco. I lived and surfed in Spain and Australia. I surfed in France, Indo (2x), Mexico, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, South Africa, British Virgin Islands, U.S East Coast and Portugal. I've been living in Central America since 2011, between Panama, Costa Rica and Nicaragua. I started a surf tour company called Surf Expedition in 2013 in Nicaragua and now own a surf camp close to Pavones, Costa Rica since 2016. To me it's all about taking our guests to special places where surf is uncrowded so they can have a good experience.
This surf camp will take place in Granada, Nicaragua. You will be surfing in two destinations and beaches across Nicaragua. Since 2009, Surf Expedition has spent several years exploring the best spots in Nicaragua. The surf trip is based on those findings. The names of the surf spots are kept a secret to preserve them from the crowds which allow for more space in the ocean to ensure safe and enjoyable sessions.
During this surf camp, breakfast and lunch are included. Other evening meals are for you to explore in the area, depending on your preferences. Vegetarian meals are available everywhere.
If you want to experience adrenaline-filled out-of-the-ordinary moments, some optional activities are available for the adrenaline junkies or just for the people who want to conquer their fear of heights and push their limits.
