February 4-10 • Santa Teresa, Costa Rica

NUSHU Surf Retreat

The NUSHU Surf Retreat aims to combine adventure, fun, and joy with opportunities for connecting with incredible women in a safe, nurturing, and judgment-free environment. We will create the conditions to come home to yourself in community, to remove all masks, show up exactly as you are, and be celebrated and loved for it.

Our retreat will give you a chance to step out of your everyday life and deepen your connection to nature, others, and most importantly, to yourself. You will go back to your life forever changed- with a deeper understanding of what it means to be supported, nourished, seen, and acknowledged as the unique and beautiful gift that you are.

You’ll share the Pura Vida lifestyle of this unique laid-back destination, surf your hearts out in warm blue waves, and meet an amazing community of like-minded women that inspire a mindful and simple way of living.

Our retreat destination, Santa Teresa, is an endlessly beautiful place unique for its patches of unspoiled nature, rocky coastline full of natural tide pools, and amazing wildlife. Set on the southernmost tip of Costa Rica's Nicoya Peninsula, it has long been a beloved destination for surfers around the world.

The retreat property is nestled high in the privacy of a lush jungle. This beautiful private villa, which is a short walk from the beach, offers a safe container to connect deeply with nature and yourself.
