Just returned from an 8 day surf camp with 8 other women and wish I could go back for a spring session!! Having never surfed before and very little experience in the ocean, I had success with surfing and made friends with those powerful ocean waves!
I found myself waking up naturally at 5:45 every morning just out of pure excitement to start the days activities (at home in VT I would sleep until 9 if I could!)!! So fun waking up to the warm air, the jungle sounds and the waves crashing just footsteps from my Treehouse balcony. And then to meet up with friends at the table for costa rican coffee and fresh fruit and granola etc.
The Peaks n Swells crew made us feel so very welcome and felt like friends right away! The coaches were so helpful - I had the opportunity to learn from 3 different coaches who all helped me through my doubts and fears and got me up surfing the green waves (which I really wasn't sure would happen!). Watching videos and seeing photographs at cocktail hour each evening was so much fun, but also so helpful to learn what could be improved the next day.
The food was amazing and I find myself eating better and craving Pinto Gallo and Peaks n Swells salads now that I'm back in VT! My kids are enjoying Peaks n Swells style lunches and are wondering when they get to go surf the green waves!
So many things to say and share about this truly unique surf camp - Amazing coaches who feel like old friends and such friendly and talented chefs! I think Hillary and Ryan and Karen have such an amazing thing going and I feel so lucky to have experienced it with such a great group of women!
