At Rise Up Surf, we are here because we love what we do, and where we get to do it. Nicaragua gives us the chance to deeply connect with the natural world, its rich culture, and warm people. While this beautiful country continues to gain popularity for it’s world-class surf and thriving biodiversity, we have managed to carve out a place that still has an undiscovered magic about it.

Main Surf Beach: Aposentillo

Surf Lessons we offer:

Beginner Surf Lessons

Level 1 – You have never surfed in your life, have tried surfing a few times, took a few surfing lessons here and there, been surfing for weeks or months, but you still have difficulty with basic techniques, fall on 30% or more of your pop ups, not comfortable swimming through the white wate or you have difficulty catching unbroken waves by yourself.

Intermediate Surf Lessons

Level 2 – You have been surfing for many weeks, months or a few years, you can paddle through the white water and you can catch unbroken waves by yourself, able to predict if a wave will be a right or a left, able to angle your take off and go down the line on a wave, rarely fall on your pop-ups or you don't need any assistance to go through the white water and to catch unbroken.

Advanced Surf Lessons

Level 3 – When you are at level 3 that means you can confidently catch head high plus waves without assistance.
