SURFSGIVING SURF CAMP

November 19 – 25, 2018

Fill your heart with gratitude by coming to our coed surf and yoga Thanksgiving celebration!

A few years ago, we celebrated a decade of Pura Vida Adventures with a weeklong surf camp fiesta over the Thanksgiving holiday. New and old friends, poolside parties, moonlit bonfires, sunset cocktails and, of course, tons of laughing, yoga, and surf—it was the best!

What started as an anniversary party became a tradition when everyone decided it was such a magical week that we had to do it again. One excited alum dubbed the week “Surfsgiving” and it stuck…and it’s now one of our favorite camps!

During this gratitude-filled week, we have planned a special Thanksgiving Day fiesta, Costa Rican style, PLUS our famous “paddle out for gratitude” session…paddle out, surf with friends, make new memories…now that’s Surfsgiving!

 

“Wow, what a week! I had such an amazing time this week and truly don’t have words to express the gratitude I have for the team at Pura Vida. All I can say is that I can’t wait to be back. XOXO.”
