Surf Retreat Founded by a Surf Professional

Our surfing program is unparalleled. We have been in Nicaragua since 2003 and are the country’s very first and best surf retreat for women. Our team of instructors has years of experience surfing, instructing and coaching. Our comprehensive surfing program was created by 6-time National Nicaraguan Surf Champ and our camp founder, Ashley Blaylock, designed to help you reach your specific goals and includes:

  1. Goal Setting upon arrival and mid-week revisions
  2. Daily Surf Theory lessons in a classroom setting
  3. Daily In-water training and surfing drills with hourly feedback sessions
  4. Video review analysis sessions 

Whichever location you join, and whatever level your surfing is, you WILL reach your goals. You will go home a changed chica, restored and empowered by your time with us!

Unlike anywhere else in the world, including Central and Northern Nicaragua, Southern Nicaragua benefits from offshore winds almost year round. This means perfect conditions, perfectly groomed waves, and the unique ability at CHICABRAVA to surf all day long! Southern Nicaragua is on the map as one of the world’s best surf destinations, yet it’s still un-crowded compared to most anywhere else! To make things even better, it’s beautiful and most of the coastline remains undeveloped.

Choosing San Juan del Sur undoubtedly gives you the best of both worlds – immersion in a teeming city of fun-loving locals while at the same time having close access to totally empty beaches with no one around, except for the occasional ox-drawn cart… oh, and of course, the offshore winds! San Juan is a tranquil fishing village set around a beautifully picturesque horseshoe-shaped bay. The town has lots of energy and rich culture, which predominate over the recent increase in tourism. There is a plethora of amazing restaurants and sizzling nightlife! The people here are as warm and friendly as the weather.
