Surf retreats for women age 40+

Available at our Cloud Farm and Surf House Locations! For both beginners and experienced adult surfers, we have put together the ultimate package for women in their 40s+. We are an adult surf camp to begin with and the average age of women that comes our surf retreat is 31. Most women older and younger do not mind surfing with that age range, but we have developed this package as a wonderful alternative for the more mature adult surfer who might prefer to enjoy the experience with a group of her peers.

We can accommodate exclusive bookings of up to 8 adults and if you’ve got a group of your own friends and/or family too! Visit Cloud Farm and Surf House to see what each surf package includes and contact us to find out which weeks/locations are available for our adult surf camps!

If this doesn’t seem exciting enough for you, we offer customizable trip options for you to get the most out of your adult getaway.

Testimonials from our Adult 40+ Surf Retreats:


“Invest in yourself!” – 5 stars
45 years old at an uncomfortable weight for myself and in OK physical shape, that’s me…… a CHICABRAVA! Admittedly, we have surfed before in other parts of the world, but at Chicabrava…..WE SURFED! Instructors are very patient and knowledgeable and they have classes, goal setting and check in’s daily. They are empowering and honest with your instruction and adjust to your personal needs. We have been to other surf camps and Chicabrava is the one for the ladies. We stayed at the Cloud Farm and it was a great accomodation. The food was amazing and pretty healthy with lots of carbs that are much needed. We will get back to the real world with some empowering skills and confidence to overcome whatever wave comes our way! See you in 2016 Chica’s!”
-Michelle S., Atlanta, Georgia, Cloud Farm 40+

“Incredible experience!” – 5 stars
I left for my first solo journey out of the county at 41 years old. I had one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I was safely picked up at the airport and transported with 3 other wonderful solo women travelers to Surf Camp at ChicaBrava where I was greeted by a very friendly, outgoing staff. We were shown all the local hangouts, restaurants, and given the option of doing nothing…or everything. We surfed each day and because there were only four of us travelers this particular week, it was practically a private lesson! […] In a nutshell, we felt really taken care and the camp felt like family. I’m already in talks with the other two girls about taking another surf trip together, we enjoyed it (and each other) so much. Book this trip. For reals.”
-Jennifer K., California, Surf House 40+

“Livin’ the dream!” – 5 stars
“What an incredible experience, from the transportation to and from the airport to being welcomed and taught by a team of supportive, positive instructors/coaches. This trip was the whole package: the hike up to Big Jesus, a long board named Walden, breakfast at Surf House, road side coconuts and mangos, music filled surf rovers, Hermosa, Maderas and Remanso beaches, professional photos, fish tacos, tostones and Tonas, video review, surf theory and etiquette, roof top yoga, goal setting and attaining, sunscreen and water, massages, great conversation, CHICABRAVA happy hour, deluxe resort access, infinity pools and cocktails. A shout out to instructors, Elsi, Anna, Naomi, Lindsey and Angie and my fellow chicas Leslie and Jeanine who got this 49 year old goofy footed beginner from WI to paddle to the outside, pop up and surf the green face!”
-Kim S., Wisconsin, Surf House 40+

“If you like adventure and beauty, you must go!” – 5 stars
I attended the CHICABRAVA surf camp with 11 friends and we had the time of our lives! The setting for the Cloud Farm accommodations was idyllic with an infinity edge pool overlooking the rain forest and bay. We were challenged physically every day but were also pampered with delicious food and fun activities like yoga, massages, zip lining, and a catamaran trip. With the supportive instruction of their surf professionals, our entire group of novice surfers were up and riding waves by the end of day one. As a group of 40 something’s, we accomplished more than we could have ever imagined and felt strong in the process. Do this for yourself because you deserve it!”
-Tracy M., Austin, TX, Cloud Farm 40+

“Life changing week” – 5 stars
“My friend and I joined an over-40’s camp at the Cloud Farm in early November and cannot recommend this experience highly enough. The Cloud Farm is stunning, open air, and surrounds an infinity pool overlooking the coast. But more important is the surf camp experience. Logistics are taken seriously and well communicated. The staff is truly amazing- perfectly chosen, fun, friendly, caring, and serious about getting the job done teaching you how to surf. The activities of the week from daily surfing to yoga, the boat trip, optional horseback rides and evenings out, and nightly surfing movies combine for a varied and totally engaging, fun week.”
-Kris M., California, Cloud Farm 40+

“Mother/Daughter Adventure” – 5 stars
“My daughter and I have been talking about taking this adventure for quite some time and finally did it!! We stayed at the surf house and loved every minute of it! Being 45 years old I was not sure of my ability to surf but with the knowledge and encouragement of the instructors and the other ladies I surprised my self!! My daughter and I have created some unbelievable memories that will last forever and strengthened an already close bond. Absolutely perfect!!”
