Surf Coaching, Yoga & Adventure

Chinandega, Nicaragua

It all starts with surfing. Whether you are ready to catch your very first wave, become more confident in the water, transition to riding a shortboard, or improve your existing skills while making new surfing friends, Surf with Amigas will help you achieve your goals. Their primary location is a remote and uncrowded area of Northern Nicaragua with awesome waves for surfers of all abilities, but it is especially good for learning to stand up for the first time. They host several retreats per year in El Salvador and Costa Rica for returning Amigas or advanced beginners and intermediate level surfers. Getting you into the best waves is top priority. If you are willing to think positively, push yourself, and listen to feedback you will leave the retreat a better surfer.

Every surf session is filmed and your teachers review the footage with you so that you can see what you’re doing right and what little changes might help you really improve. For an example of Surf with Amigas coaching style, see the video below.

It’s a super positive supportive environment.  The other girls will become your new surfing sisters, yelling and cheering and clapping and dancing in celebration of your awesome rides.

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.
