Our mission is to share our love for surfing and travel through uniquely designed trips that offer our guests an authentic experience of a true surfing lifestyle.

Our 7 day all-inclusive surf trips are specifically designed to teach all aspects of surfing in order to progress the ability of both beginner and intermediate surfers. You will get your own one on one lesson time that focuses on your personal growth, as well as share the experience with a family of like minded surfers to learn, progress, and have fun together. If you have a true desire to learn how to surf or to take your surfing to the next level, then this trip is for you.

The incredible surf camp consists of two large complexes perched directly on top of the cliff at Punta Miramar. The camp has rooms located at the front of the complex with spectacular views of the ocean and surrounding beaches. There is a large open communal area with great views of the surf, amazing sunsets and a place to hang out with fellow surfers. An open and breezy hammock area to quietly relax and feed the soul is located on top of a training area used for surf training, yoga, and meditating. Rooms are clean with modern furnishing

We want to be sure that you score the best waves (for your skill level) during your retreat. As our retreats begin to fill up we add more dates within the peak season.

The Surf

Located towards the North of the Nicaragua, in a sleepy fishing village, this surf hot-spot offers more than just the average wave. It is graced with opportunity for plenty of recreational activities and a calming, peaceful atmosphere. Blessed with offshore winds all day, rich with points and beach breaks, it provides waves all year round. The beauty of Miramar is that it accommodates all levels of surfers, introducing beginners to the stoke of the sport and challenging even the most experienced of surfers with some swell. Throughout the year, at this rare uncrowded haven, the waves usually range between 3-8ft. There is no need for a wet suit as the water is warm, perfect if you just want to catch those last quick waves at sunset. Additionally, there are always an array of waves for beginners at the neighboring beach breaks.

At Vida Surf our mission is to greatly progress your surfing ability over the duration of our trip while keeping things fun and enjoyable for everyone. You will receive surf coaching that is second to none. Each day you will get 3 hours of lessons with a professional surf coach on a 1 coach to 3 students ratio. This allows our coaches to break you up into small personal groups to focus on your exact ability level. Don’t worry though, we will all be out there surfing together so you can still share the stoke with the whole group. In addition to the surf coaching we will also have a professional photographer taking pictures and videos of each session which we will later review while chilling out at the camp. This is a great tool to let you see what exactly you are doing well and what you can improve upon. It also makes for a great souvenir from the trip.

“We have 5 amazing and different surf breaks all within walking distance of the surf camp. The closest 2 waves are just steps from the camp and the furthest is only a 15 minute walk. We also have a boat available with 3 more surf breaks accessible via a short boat trip.”

About Us

Growing up in Canada, snowboarding and skateboarding were a way of life for us. There was something so freeing about expressing yourself through the act of riding. Naturally we had always dreamed of taking this passion to the ocean. There was always a burning desire to try surfing. Finally in 2012 we embarked on our first backpacking trip (to Nicaragua), and that dream came true. It was love from day one!

Over the last 7 years we have been travelling around the world in search of the best beginner/ intermediate waves, combined with amazing cultures and beautiful natural settings. Surfing in these destinations has truly changed our lives and we want to share this passion with you! Our goal is bring together like-minded individuals who share a love for surf and travel to offer them a chance to live an authentic surf life. Through our uniquely designed surf program we strive to greatly progress the development each individual surfer, while learning, growing and sharing experiences as a group. Who knows, maybe this trip will change your life too!
