Surf Coaching, Yoga & Adventure

Chinandega, Nicaragua

Location

Chinandega, Nicaragua

Only three hours from the International Airport in Managua, this quiet tropical paradise on the Northern Pacific coast in Nicaragua is home to world class waves and friendly folks. With a volcano nearby (where you can actually go volcano boarding!), many streams, natural reserves, historic sites, peaceful villages - there is much to explore aside from the yoga and surfing.

Out front of the retreat centre is Coco Loco beach, which is feels like a private beach with few beach combers. It's a stunning and peaceful beach. There are a couple of amazing beginner to intermediate friendly surf spots directly out front of the retreat centre with more great surf breaks nearby.

Offered Year Round - starting from $1900 per person

Holly Beck Obermeyer – Owner/Operator/Surf Instructor

holly_spray_profile_1.jpg
Holly grew up the oldest of five girls in Palos Verdes, CA. She always loved the water and wanted to learn to surf around age 12 but her very old-fashioned mother would not allow it, telling her, “surfing is for boys, you’ll never get a boyfriend out there competing with them. You should be sitting on the beach looking cute in a bikini!” By the age of 15 Holly had saved up babysitting money, bought herself a surfboard and a wetsuit and never looked back.
In June of 2001, Holly graduated from UCSD with a degree in Psychology and won the amateur National Surfing Championships. She turned pro and spent the next 10 years traveling all over the world to places like Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Peru, South Africa, Gabon, Sao Tome, the Seychelles, the Andaman Islands, Hawaii, Tahiti, Fiji, England, France, Portugal, Ecuador, the Galapagos, Mexico, and Costa Rica. On a trip to Nicaragua in 2006 she fell in love with the warm water waves, friendly locals, and laid-back lifestyle, bought land, and began to fantasize about moving to Central America full time.

Holly earned an MBA in Marketing while traveling and crafted a business plan to start a women’s surf school in Nicaragua. In 2010, she founded Suave Dulce, later changing the name to Surf With Amigas. She believes that anything is possible if you are willing to work hard and visualize success. As further proof of this philosophy, Holly now lives in Nicaragua full time with her awesome husband Kim, baby girl Luna, and their two dogs and three horses.
