This was my second trip in less than 6 months, and it absolutely did not disappoint. If you want a local experience at some of the best breaks in Nicaragua this trip is for you! Corina and Phil somehow bring together an amazing group (both the staff and guests), and the team does an exceptional job at curating a unique experience for any age and experience level. From tortilla making with a local woman to beautiful warm surf with knowledgeable coaches to breathtaking views and accommodations to delicious meals and much more. For some, this was a life changing trip and for others they upskilled their surfing and relaxed into the eve. You can make it whatever you want, but one thing is certain, you will walk away with memories that will last a lifetime, new friends, and a deepened stoke for surfing. Can't wait for the next ride with the Rise Up crew!

This was my first solo trip to Central America, and as a 23-year-old woman that speaks very little (to no) Spanish, this was the easiest trip I could have imagined. Everything was handled by the Rise Up Team, and they were very communicative throughout the whole process. I came on this trip to learn how to surf, and while I wasn't prepared for how physically tiring surfing would be, the mechanics of actually catching a wave were taught so well that I popped up on my third wave ever. Our group was phenomenal, and all of us left with new friendships and a desire to return to our Rise Up familia in the future. Thank you Melqui, Tori, and Jenna! Su made the most delicious food, and Mattie took the best photos! We love you!!!

The trip was such an amazing adventure. The surf instructors were very good and knew all of the local spots. We were usually the only ones in the water when we were surfing. The waves couldn't have been better for beginner/intermediate surfers. High tide was very early but that first wave washes away any sleepin your eyes. The food really stole the show of the week. First and second breakfast, lunch, and dinner were all so delicious. there is not a boring moment the entire week literally from sun up to sun down. The eco-lodge was very nice as well. It was quite warm even at night so the fans were a must for sleeping... Our surfing ability increased so much in just six days, I can't thank the instructors enough - they were boombastic. You guys made the trip !!!

Fantastic week with Rise Up in Nicaragua. Great instructors for both yoga and surf! Phil and the staff went above and beyond for my daughter’s 15th birthday with some classic Nicaraguan traditions. We had a blast!

The best waves I've ever surfed - I wasn't sure how much I could improve my surfing in one week (I've been surfing for a year 2-3 times a week in LA), but Phil and Corina's team (Matt, Aaron, Lance, Wilmer) pushed me out of my comfort zone and into waves I would have been too scared to surf without them (6-8ft walls in Pan Dulce - amazing!!!!!!). It's amazing what little things you learn in the water next to expert surfers. Getting a ride all the way from the far end of a point to the beach (like almost a minute ride, seriously) is enough to get anyone stoke as well. The food, logistics, transportation, nature (monkeys every day, just hanging out in the trees above!), boards (some great longboards!), and waves made this an unforgettable experience. If you happen to be debating whether it's worth it, believe me, it is!!! To note, I was neither the most advanced (duh) or most beginner surfer there - there were a couple of surfers who were brand new who were incredibly good for the time they had spent by the end. Thanks so much Rise Up!!!
