Seeking a new adventure? BLISS is a women’s surf camp in Costa Rica, located in the town of Nosara. You can learn to surf in one of the best locations in the world, while making friends and gaining lifelong memories. Inspired by the “spirit of adventure and joy of surfing,” Bliss is a little piece of paradise and the perfect excuse to escape the daily grind.
Yoga and surf instruction is offered daily on location in Nosara, Costa Rica. From beginning to intermediate surfers, all skill levels are welcome to visit Bliss!
Jess Arnold started her business due to the impact of a recent surf trip to Costa Rica. On the flight home she found herself feeling more confident and at peace than ever before. Soon it became her mission to share this feeling of Bliss with others. Just a few months later, Jess had developed an all inclusive women’s surf and yoga retreat in one of her favorite destinations.
Arnold explained to the Surf Channel, “The inspiration for BLISS came from my experiences of surfing & traveling in Central America. They changed my life & perspective in a truly positive way. When I moved back to CA from Costa Rica I decided to create an experience for women where they too could take part in the lifestyle I had come to love. So many women dream of learning to surf & l think a lot of people are drawn to that quintessential lifestyle we see in the surf brand advertisements. I made it my mission to provide the experience that inspires the surfer girl image. Our objective is to teach surfing but our aspiration is to share the lifestyle”.
Jenayl Peters, one of the surf instructors also explained to the Surf Channel, “Being a part of BLISS gives women of any age the chance to fulfill a dream. Not only the dream to become a surfer, but the dream to travel, take a chance, and become the person you have always wanted to be. It represents the opportunity of success, of self-accomplishments, literally leaving you purely blissful. Guests from the most recent week at BLISS are still emailing me about when to book the next trip or where to go on their own! The surfing bug doesn’t dwindle!”
