“A Paradise – Best Place to Learn to Surf”
ohamilto | January 2018
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 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.
