Rise Up Surf
6 reviews
We are a surf and yoga retreat based in Nicaragua but offering retreats worldwide.


This was an amazing retreat where good friends, amazing coaches, cooks, cleaners and hosts took care of each other. We laughed until we cried and surfed until we were water-logged. Thank you RISE UP!!

My week surfing in Guatemala was amazing, I can not wait to go back! As always, Rise Up has delivered a fantastic retreat. Every aspect of the week surpassed expectation. The resort was beautiful with such a lavish pool! Jamie outdid herself, as always, providing the most amazing meals, and fresh juices to power us through all of our activities. While the surf was not the easiest for the days of the retreat, the top notch instructors made sure that everyone focused on their surf goals, got better, and had FUN! After all out hard work paddling, our restorative yoga classes were the perfect solution. As an extra activity, we had the opportunity to visit a local NGO, La Choza Chula. We learned about their great work in the community and then had the opportunity to visit a local home for a cooking class, such a great experience! I cannot recommend Rise Up Surf tours enough, and will continue to go back year after year. In the meatime I will continue to pour over all the beautiful photos taken by their photographer Emy (Salty Sea).

The trip exceeded expectations! Wonderful surf and yoga instruction, and a beautiful place to stay. The food was also amazing (and plentiful). So glad I did this retreat, highly recommend it!

As always, we had an epic week with the rise up crew @ swell Guatemala. The accommodation was perfect, the food was great and the beach was infinitely long. I have to say that the beach break was way too fast for my skill level so I wouldn’t recommend it for intermediate surfers or longboarders (ok for beginners who wants to learn in the white waves as they are big enough for a challenge).
