Surfing For A Purpose
We believe that surf travel should benefit the people and the communities where it happens. Go to surf, leave something behind.
The best trips are those you do not plan for! Thank you for this great experience, in which apart from knowing another culture I had the opportunity to meet great people!
Great people and even better friends, with awesome plans to help the community!
I had an amazing time at ETCA playing with and getting to know the kids of the community. Lots of "ping pong", laughs, spanglish conversations, and on the last day we made bracelets!
A remarkable small organization making a huge impact on this tiny village!
The surfing spots and opportunities are plentiful; there are three great breaks within walking distance and if the wind isn't cooperating, they can drive you to a better spot.
"I walk away with from this feeling like so much has happened, so much was achieved and there are so many stories to tell and a lot of great experiences to share. Lobitos is a lovely, growing desert village with an interesting historical background, friendly people and lots to offer."
Couldn't say enough about this place: beautiful beach, spotless facilities, and the best food you'll eat in Nicaragua, top it all off with fun, attentive, knowledgeable owners and an always smiling and helpful support staff. You will absolutely regret coming here-you'll never want to leave and nowhere else you go will be as good!!
"Expect an encouraging experience with dedicated community leaders, working hard to improve education, increase awareness, and make a difference in the local community. It's a great atmosphere for teamwork and cooperation. There will be plenty of fun and laughter, too."
We had such a blast these last two weeks hanging out at ETCA and getting to know some of the kids and youth and the ladies that work there.
Expect an encouraging experience with dedicated community leaders, working hard to improve education, increase awareness, and make a difference in the local community. It's a great atmosphere for teamwork and cooperation. There will be plenty of fun and laughter, too.
Whether you're a beginner or expert surfer, you can find consistent waves to ride in every one of the beautiful locations.
Each day give back to the local community and assist on projects. That way once you leave, you'll leave something behind.
