Co-ed Surf & Yoga Retreat in Southern, Costa Rica

Welcome to where the jungle meets the surf! From the moment you arrive, we want you to feel a part of our Sister Surf family. With over 20 years of experience, we will be sure to make you feel safe and supported in the water so that you can relax and enjoy surfing to the fullest.

This beautiful location has some seriously fun waves, with great options for both advanced and beginner surfers.
Each day of the retreat you will enjoy 3 delicious fresh meals ( with amazing local produce ), surf session, yoga class, and video coaching.

On several days there will be additional activities and surf based classroom sessions!

Our goal is to surf in the conditions that are best for your surfing ability.

For example, in Costa Rica, we always surf with the best tides for the waves.

Depending on how the conditions are we’ll either surf one long session or a morning and afternoon session.

Typically there will be a combination of beginner and intermediate surfers and the exact surf locations and times will be chosen based on the group’s ability.

Your surfer-to-instructor ratio will be 3:1 so you will always have the attention and instruction needed in the water.

Our daily yoga classes are tailored exactly to what our surf bodies need. Our in house yoga teacher is also one of the surf coaches so she knows exactly what we need to stretch out.

Our yoga style is mostly super chill restorative poses to relax & replenish our bodies for our next surf session.

No previous Yoga experience is necessary!

During the retreat she teaches mostly yin yoga (deep stretching and relaxation) and a few vinyasa classes focusing on balance, strength, and breath.

She has been surfing 15 years and has taught surfing in the US Virgin Islands, Costa Rica, Australia, and Long Island NY.

CHELSEA GRENIER

Surf Instructor / Aspiring artist

Chelsea pretty much grew up in the ocean. Being from a place like St. John, US Virgin Islands it would be hard not to love the sea! She spent a lot of time sailing as a kid but wasn’t until the age of 12 that she started surfing with Marjie & Coco.

Once they started surfing it was ON! Surfing has taken Chelsea all over the world to places like Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama, Hawaii, Australia, Puerto Rico, California & Mexico. Australia is where the girls went to university to study Sports Management Surfing Studies.

This is where they became certified surf coaches and where the retreat idea sparked! She has been teaching surfing for over 10 years and always has so much enthusiasm and patience in the water. She’ll have you smiling and surfing better before you know it!

“In a word: perfection! Coco, Marjie and Chelsea are an incredible trio that inspire, educate and support. These ladies nailed every aspect of the retreat: the super cute tropical accommodations with everything we needed, the insane chef that created flavorful, locally-inspired vegan meals that nourished us, the thoughtfully planned schedule that was the perfect combination of active and relaxing... I could go on and on. They truly curated a perfect week. They found great local spots for us to surf and have breaks to ourselves, and were supportive out in the water, giving hugely helpful tips and knowledge, pushing me the extra bit I needed and ultimately giving me more confidence with each day. They're quite the team, each offering something unique, helpful and creative! Sweet pregnant Coco's yoga was sheer bliss, and much-needed. In addition to having a wonderful time, it was a welcome reminder to make time for the things I love, challenge my body and have FUN. These fearless, badass ladies are an inspiration for how life should be lived. Their love for the ocean and surfing is apparent in their beautiful spirits and ability to craft the ultimate surf retreat. ❤ A must-do for sure!”

“AMAZING experience with incredible women! Wow! The three sisters that own and operate this retreat are fantastic. From the surfing to the yoga everything was taught with love and compassion. Marjie, Coco & Chelsea are incredible surf instructors and our group (from all walks of life) feeling comfortable in the ocean and catching waves. Coco lead us in daily mediation that helped with breathing in the water as well as relaxing our bodies before and after surf. I cannot express my gratitude and love for these three ladies as well as the women that attended the retreat. Oh, and the food was so yummy!!! I will definitely be going back:)”
