Rolf Gates and Richard Schmidt

Costa Rica Yoga & Surf Retreat with Rolf Gates & Richard Schmidt

December 3-10, 2016 – Nosara, Costa Rica

Surfing and yoga go hand-in-hand. And we can’t think of a better place for a surf and yoga retreat. Each December we team up with world renowned yoga instructor Rolf Gates and offer a week long yoga and surf retreat in Costa Rica.

Our normal Costa Rica Surf Camps (above) that we run are 80% surfing and 20% yoga. The Yoga & Surf Retreat with Rolf Gates & Richard Schmidt is 50% yoga and 50% surfing. It’s a great way to immerse yourself fully in two incredible activities that are truly complimentary.
