WELCOME TO RISE UP SURF
We are truly stoked to do what we love! Our core mission is to change people’s lives with an once-in-a-lifetime surf and yoga retreat in Nicaragua. Often we are the only ones walking on the beach, surfing the best waves, or exploring hidden spots in North Nicaragua. We like to keep things simple and hassle free. Our packages are all inclusive and guarantee carefree holidays. Come and enjoy!
LEARN TO SURF OR GET YOUR GUIDED SURF TOUR
Whether you want to learn to surf with our ISA-certified surf instructors or pack in as much surfing as humanly possible on a guided tour – with Rise Up Surf you get it all. Perfect waves on uncrowded beaches, daily yoga classes, healthy meals, that’s not enough? You will also enjoy epic adventures and get the opportunity to truly connect with the Nicaraguan culture.
YOGA RIGHT ON THE BEACH
Yoga is an integral part of the Rise Up Surf lifestyle and experience. With our two yoga studios right on the beach front we offer many options. Wether you are a yoga instructor who is custom-building a retreat, or a yoga lover who would like to disconnect and enjoy lessons with a background of crashing waves. We have everything you need for an extraordinary experience.
Rise Up is amazing! I just got back from a week of surf and yoga. The accommodations are great and surrounded by amazing scenery. The meals were amazing and they catered to any dietary issues without hesitation. The surf instructors were knowledgeable and helpful, but also taught us to be more independent. Everything was really easy and hassle-free, and the staff were always ready to help make the trip even better.

“A paradise – best place to learn to surf“
Simply wow. I came to Rise Up for 10 days to improve my surfing and I went home a completely different surfer. The instruction is unparalleled. It’s not just that the coaches are good in the water, they also do video analysis, ‘surf theory’ classes – which were beyond helpful- and even paddling and duck diving lessons. The staff exudes positivity and warmth and it was just a joy being there. Rise up is great if you want to be independent and do your own thing, and also if you want to be welcomed into group activities like boat trips, horseback riding and sunsets at the point. The vibe is so relaxed and comfortable. ALSO – i have to mention the Yoga. I’ve been practicing yoga for 12 years and never expect much from vacation classes but Georgie was one of the best yoga instructors I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Highly recommend doing the daily yoga class while you’re there as it’s excellent for all levels and the perfect counterbalance to surfing.

Enjoyed a wonderful stay at Rise Up in December. From start to finish I loved the experience and can’t say enough good things about the Rise Up “family” who go above and beyond to take care of every detail. I agree with all the other reviewers about the beauty and peacefulness of the setting, the fresh healthy meals, great excursions, and wonderful yoga classes in a beautiful outdoor studio next to the ocean. Surfers of all levels can have a great experience and there are many beaches and breaks within a short distance. Even as a complete beginner I was able to enjoy daily lessons and excellent instruction that allowed to me to make progress in a short period of time.
The energy, enthusiasm and good humor of the instructors and staff creates a friendly and fun atmosphere. I also loved the family style meals on the patio which allow guests and staff to get to know each other over the course of the week.
Hoping to return very soon!
Rise Up was great in all areas. The surfing was uncrowded, instructors were nice and knowledgable, food was incredible, and the camp itself was a great place to hang out and relax during down time. They really took care of everything and made sure that all the guests had a great week. I am looking forward to a return trip.

“Welcome to paradise”
The only word needed for that place is amazing! The staff is super friendly, the food outstanding and the place so relaxing that you feel at home immediately! Next to perfect surf-guiding which includes video-coaching and very professional feedback. You can join yoga lessons right at the beach. Stunning! Definitely have to get back there soon!
