Overview

Our group will depart on June 5 for a 7 day, 8 night surf and serve retreat. We will fly into San Jose airport as a group, take a charter plane to Manzanillo, and drive to El Chante Surf House in the beautiful Santa Teresa area of Costa Rica. Over the course of the experience, travelers will have daily surf sessions, hand-made meals by our in-house chef (insanely good food), and participate in a surf contest for the locals, as well as work for 3 afternoons at a battered women's shelter. We have left one day open on the itinerary as well as one optional day for a fishing excursion.

Surfing in the Sixties

Surfing in the Sixties

Finding and surfing perfect waves is the everlasting dream of every surfer. And you’ve probably said to a fellow surfer, “Hey, let’s do another surf trip soon!” And the reply is always, “Yea, cool. Where to?” Then you name a few great point break destinations and reminisce about adventures from previous surf trips.  But most of us surfers in our sixties never actually commit to that next adventure because our work and family lives, or our declining vitality seem to hold us back; and then that next epic surf trip becomes just an imaginary item on the bucket list. 


This scenario was the catalyst for surfers Campbell ("Camp") Douglass, Kevin Schweizer,  and Stephanie ("2W") Brown of New Smyrna Beach, FL, and John Phillips of Ponce Inlet, FL to start Surfing in the Sixties - a venture for surf, service, and fellowship for all of us who aspire to be sexagenarian surfers. One of our mottos is, "If you're not here yet (in your sixties), God willing you're going to be; and if you're beyond your sixties, you'll continue to share the love of surfing and serving with us." 


If you resonate with our motto, and you still dream of getting the barrel of your life - or at least the occasional ‘head dip’ - we hope you’ll become a member and join us for our next surf trip.  Our typical surf destinations are warm water point breaks that enhance the surfing and serving experience as we support local orphanages at each surf destination. 


Let's keep surfing perfect waves until the time when, God willing, we enjoy surfing in the seventies!
