PURA VIDA ADVENTURES

Costa Rica
Pura Vida Adventures
is about giving women the opportunity to either learn or improve their surfing skills in a fun, non-competitive environment. But surfing is just part of the adventure.

Together we will explore the art of wave riding, find presence in daily yoga, enjoy healthy gourmet food and share in a community of laughter and fun. Our surf camp draws inspiration from the Costa Rican phrase "pura vida," which, loosely translated, means "enjoy life." This spirit is infused into every aspect of our surf retreats. Pura Vida Adventures is about giving you a new experience and perhaps a new outlook on life. Pura Vida is located in Malpais, Costa Rica. It is nature in bliss, being surrounded by pristine South American waters and rainforests from behind.

Hawaii
KELEA Hawaii
was formed by Elenice Senn and Stephanie Tufts, two women who love the sport of surfing and being active outdoors. Why a surf spa?

Kelea lures women away from their stressful lives into an environment “where the greatest worry is sand in your surf wax”.
