Mai Tai Madness New Year’s Surf Camp!

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: We love it when new students come to camp and we get to introduce them to the amazing joy of surfing. The exhilaration of riding a warm tropical for the first time? Lounging stoked and tired, drinking a cocktail at sunset? Sittin’ in the sun at one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica? WIN!

But when new students come to camp and we get to introduce them to surfing AND some of our amazing return alumni? This is a double win!


Last year we made some amazing friends at our famous New Year’s Eve camp, and we were beyond stoked that a bunch of them came back to end/begin a year with us again!

From jungle juice beach parties to spontaneous dance offs to crazy Montezuma waterfall trips to Pat Benatar sing-alongs, this year was EPIC.

Mai tais, waves for days, yoga love, dancing on tables, and a pact to come back again NEXT year…this camp represents the love, community, and bonds that are formed at surf camp.
