Surf Coaching, Yoga & Adventure

7-Day Surf, Yoga & Adventure Retreat

This surf escape is specifically designed for those who want to learn to surf or improve on their current surfing skills. Based at our beachside surf retreat in Punta Aposentillo, you’ll have access to perfect waves right on your doorstep. In the area, there are waves ideal for every level of surfing. So whether you’re a beginner or looking to progress and push your limits to improve, there’s something for you.

We offer an instructor ratio of two to one and have a maximum of fifteen guests per week. Our approach to coaching is tailored to your individual level, so whether we are in the water with you, teaching you about surf theory, or analyzing video footage of you surfing, it’s always with your personal goals in mind.

As we have a variety of waves in the region, we take you to the right waves for your level in either our 4 x4 trucks or via boat, thus making everyday a surf adventure to remember. Your surf coach is not only an experienced and professional surf coach but they are also there to truly make sure you leave with the right tools and skills to progress on your surf journey.

Yoga is an integral part of your day and is scheduled to fit in with the daily surf sessions. The classes are suitable for all levels of students and are specifically designed to relieve the aches and pains you’ll likely get from spending a day out on the water.

And when you’re not surfing or practicing yoga? Well, the fun doesn’t stop there. By all means, relax by the pool if you want, but we always make an effort for you to experience the local culture and nature by taking you on some amazing adventures around the region.

"Hidden Gem"

You are given a highly experienced coach for the week and they take you to one of many surf breaks in the area that fits your level of surfing. My coach for the past 2 trips has been Norvin and I can honestly say his kindness and skill in the water in working to make me a better surfer has been one of the biggest blessings to me in one of my life goals to lead a more adventurous life in my 40s. This area of Nicaragua has so many beautiful, empty surf breaks for all levels of surfing. You and your friends from Rise Up will normally be the only ones out there catching beautiful waves.

"Can't wait to return!"

"Just returned from a week at Rise Up and have already planned my return trip. Beautiful setting overlooking the ocean and wonderful staff offering excellent surf instruction and tons of fun. Instructors take you surfing in the morning and play beach volleyball with you in the afternoon. Instructor gave me great feedback after each wave which I really appreciated. Very well-organized yet relaxed and safe. Excellent value and the most private surf breaks I've ever visited. I've traveled extensively and felt safe starting from my arrival at the airport, during the entire stay and all the way back through Managua on the return ride to the airport. If you're considering it, you should go. Or don't- More waves for me. :)"

"Consistently Awesome"

I just got back from a week at Rise Up, it's my 3rd time there and as in previous visits Rise Up absolutely rocked it! Beautiful people, incredible location & so much fun and laughter that I never want to leave!! The surf instruction is great and the resort is very well run and organized, creating an inviting and chill vibe all around.The perfect holiday in my opinion!! As for the safety factor in Nicaragua, I saw absolutely no signs of unrest or danger during our entire adventure. I felt completely safe and secure and will be going back to Rise Up Surf as soon as I possibly can!

"I just got back from a week long stay at Rise Up. First time there. Simply amazing. Well organized, awesome people, well fed. Also my first time surfing and everyone was very welcoming and supportive. Lots of relaxation and down time if you just want to chill. One of the best vacations I have ever had!"

"Best surf vacation I've ever had, will be back ASAP"

"I can't recommend Rise more highly. Honestly, 110% commitment from the hosts to providing a safe, comfortable, fun, memorable experience. Fresh homemade healthy meals three times a day plus amazing treats like homemade banana bread and desserts.. From the moment they picked me up from the airport to the moment they dropped me back off at the airport, I felt so safe. My surfing improved dramatically. The instructors are OUTSTANDING. I ignored the US travel advisory,which is honestly ridiculous, like one political thing happened in the major city one day last year... Best decision I ever made. I am already planning my next trip back!"
