Surfing Retreat Details

Learn to Live Your Dream Life as You Learn to Ride the Waves

Learning to surf brings up a lot of the same things that come up when we try to play bigger in our lives – excitement, fear, self-doubt, criticism to name a few. We’ll teach you to navigate these things so that you will leave the retreat ready to step into your most vibrant and fulfilling life.

A Swell Life Retreat is an experience of total rejuvenation that only the ocean can provide. Once you’ve paddled the waves, you’ll be immersed in coaching sessions to identify what is truly important in your life and remove mental blocks to help you achieve your goals faster.

Build an Unshakeable Confidence When You Find You Can Do More Than You Ever Thought Possible

What is Included in a Swell Life Retreat?

Our goal at Swell Life is to take care of all of the details, so you can focus on what’s important; you! To that end, we provide healthy meals throughout the duration of the retreat. Our retreats are held in a beautiful beach house on the Oregon coast with the option for private or shared rooms.

You will have two surf lessons rain or shine* with all gear provided, three days of activities and professional coaching to help you build your own swell life, plus access to our ongoing Swell Life Alumna community after the retreat.

The week before your retreat we will have a group coaching call so you can meet the other awesome women who will join you on this epic adventure.  The week after the retreat we’ll have another group coaching call to check in on the progress you’ve made toward the life you want to live.  After that you are encouraged to set up individual coaching calls with either Amanda or April to help you maintain the momentum from the retreat.

Finally, all retreat participants receive a sweet parting gift, because who doesn’t like cool stuff?

What isn’t provided is travel to retreat site in Manzanita, Oregon. We encourage participants to carpool and will connect you to help facilitate this.

*we hold the right to cancel a surf lesson if we have determined the conditions are unsafe.
