Inner Discovery Retreat

Surf and Sound – unwind and recalibrate your mind, body, and soul

Northern Nicaragua

February 1st – 8th 2025


February 15th – 22nd 2025

Pause. Center. Reset.

Unwind, recalibrate, and empower your mind, body and soul through a journey with the 4 elements activated with sacred sound!

Join Rise Up Surf and Kassia Meador for an intimate all inclusive 7-day journey for women, “Surf & Sound”. Our mission is to create a meaningful community through our shared love for the ocean and this beautiful natural world. The goal is to expand through surfing, movement practices, sound baths, and meditations. On this retreat, we will explore ourselves and each other in deeper, more connected ways, while sharing a relaxing space to unwind and recharge.

We will help you align with your true self through sound, surfing, nature, water, sound, and the wildness within yourself.

This is a women’s retreat for all levels; from absolute beginner to experienced wave rider.

The retreat vibes

This week-long wellness retreat is a unique opportunity to harness the powerful healing of sound alongside great company.
Together, we will tune in to how it feels to unfold, release, and disconnect through surfing, mindfulness and other meditation techniques.

You will be surfing with verdant views of palm trees on the black sand beaches of Northern Nicaragua. The beach directly in front of our location is a peeling left hand reef break that works on medium to large swells. Our isolated location allows us to surf the emptiest waves in Nicaragua. Based on the changing tides and conditions, we will make sure to take you to the best breaks each day.

Let’s spread the light and love together!
