Our Signature Retreat
WOMEN’S SURF & YOGA RETREATS
Join us in the community of “Pura Vida”!
Most of the PVA team started surfing when there were still very few women in the water. This is why we are SO passionate about teaching the beautiful, transformative, and amazing sport of surfing to women from all over the world.
With every group of women who come to our retreats in Costa Rica, we see the incredible way that surfing and yoga can empower, energize, and enliven people’s lives. Whether you’re in your first year of college or first year of retirement, surfing and yoga will help grow your strength and joy in your body and soul.
Come experience the adventure of travel, the joy of new friends, the beauty of paradise, and the incredible way surf and yoga can transform your body, spirit, and life.

“The most eloquent words that come to mind when I think about my surf camp adventure in Malpais – life changing. Pura Vida taught me how to surf, how to be tranquil, how to conquer my ocean fears and most importantly… how to enjoy life. The scenery is breathtaking, yoga and surf instruction are fabulous, accommodations are great…I came to surf camp, never having been on a surfboard. I left 7 days later “hanging 10″, meeting lifelong friends and coming away with the best experience of my life.””
