Surf and Seek

An Ocean Wisdom Experience

with Rise Up Surf and Tawny Avonne

El Transito

November 23 – 29 2024

Surf and Seek

We are offering a unique one-week retreat from 23 – 29 November 2024 for you to Surf and Seek, while gathering wisdom from focused flow states of being, at El Transito in beautiful Nicaragua.

Tawny is a renowned Wisdom Teacher, Life Consultant and Integrity Coach who has been serving clients for 19 years.

This is an invitation for you to depart 2024 and arrive in 2025 with a strong intention, a clear vision and the wisdom to create and manifest that vision for yourself.

Immersive workshops, shared experiences and a private session with Tawny will provide you with the wisdom tools to live an authentic and intentional life for the fullest expression of who you are.

Surf with verdant views of palm trees on the black sand beaches of central Nicaragua. Directly in front of our resort is a beach break with a dreamy reef break just a short drive away. Thanks to being off-the-beaten-path, we surf some of the emptiest waves in the world.

“This is a mind, body, and spirit reboot. It’s life changing with stellar results. Tawny our wisdom teacher will super charge your emotional health.
While the Rise Up crew will satisfy all your needs, comfortably. The food was incredible and healthy. World class surfing with awesome coaches. I’ve been surfing my whole life and I was amazed how much I learned. And our location in Nicaragua was a stunning refuge.“

“First off the setting is remarkable, and the fact that you have access to outstanding staff and food and instructors and surf is a bonus on top of wisdom school itself! Working with Tawny is one of the most transformative experiences of my life, and this retreat was life changing. Not for the faint of heart, but for those who are ready to open up to it all with reverence, awe and wonder! Enjoy!“

– Mike

“I had the most amazing time at the Rise Up and Tawny Avonne Surf Retreat! It offered a perfect blend of fun surf, rejuvenating yoga, delicious food, and insightful sessions. I highly recommend this retreat to anyone looking for a memorable and transformative experience. Whether you’re a seasoned surfer or a beginner, you’ll leave with cherished memories and a renewed sense of self.

The highlight of the retreat were the sessions with Tawny Avonne herself. Her insights and guidance went beyond the physical aspects of surfing and yoga. Tawny’s unique blend of wisdom, compassion, and expertise created a transformative space for self-reflection and personal growth. Her ability to connect with each participant on a deeper level was truly remarkable, and I left every session feeling inspired and empowered.“
