Innovative retreats to provide quality surf coaching, daily yoga, healthy, local meals, and a commitment to give back to the local Central American communities.

After spending the last ten years traveling the world for contests and photo shoots, pro surfer Holly Beck will combine her passions for surfing, yoga, and inspiring others to open a unique, first-of-its kind retreat for female surfers. Ladies of all ages and surfing abilities will be invited to travel to surf un-crowded waves in warm water while receiving professional-quality coaching and friendly encouragement from one of the icons of the sport.

“I’ve had a dream for a long time to open a retreat like Suave Dulce, and I’m happy to say that that dream is now coming true,” said founder, Holly Beck. “The thing I miss most about doing the tour is going surfing with my friends, who happen to be some of the best female surfers in the world. I’m really excited to have this opportunity to bring them down, along with quality Yoga instructors, to Nicaragua to surf great waves in warm water and help me inspire other ladies to achieve their goals in surfing, while also having a positive impact on the local community,” said Beck.

The premiere Suave Dulce Women’s Surf and Yoga Retreat will initially be based in a beautiful beachfront retreat in Nicaragua, but will eventually offer multiple locations throughout Central America and further abroad. Guests will spend time surfing, practicing yoga, eating delicious, healthy cuisine, and will also be presented with opportunities to interact with and positively impact the lives of local community members. Beck is partnering with several non-profits already at work within the country to allow visitors the chance to make their vacation more meaningful by giving back to the community. Projects will include making art and music with local school children, bringing lunches to the poor kids that live at the city dump, building water purification systems, and planting trees.

Unlike other women’s surf camps where the instructors and guides are often only intermediate surfers themselves, guests at Suave Dulce will be coached by professional surfers including Holly Beck and her friends.

The first Suave Dulce retreat will open in April 2010
