Guys just wanna have fun, too! Although PVA started as an all-women camp, for the past 11 years we have also been offering our exceptional coed camps that bring the spirit of “pura vida” to surf lesson and yoga classes for both men and women. For friends, solo travelers, or even couples looking to mingle, our all-inclusive coed surf camps are the perfect get-away adventure for surfer guys and gals of all ages and skill levels.
Our surf and yoga retreats truly embrace the “pura vida” way by enjoying life through meeting new friends, sharing the sport of surfing, practicing the art of yoga, relaxation, laughter and fun. It’s because of this vibe that the coed camp dynamics remain the same as our all-female camps. We’ve noticed over the years that the men enjoy our retreats just as much as the women do. The quality of our surf instruction, selection of activities, camaraderie and the “pura vida” vibe are what set us apart from the rest and what make our retreats so unforgettable.
We cater to all levels of surfers, from the complete beginner to those who’ve surfed for years. There is always plenty to learn at our surf camps and surfing is just part of what’s included. You will be placed in a surf group based on your skill level and experience. Our student to teacher ratio is 3 to 1 and after the 3rd day you can count on some one-on-one surf instruction to ensure you’re getting the attention you deserve. We have a multitude of surf breaks in the area and a surf van, which allows us to explore all the options.
