We OUT CHEA
Oh hell ya. In November we're headed back to where it all started: COSTA RICA. And for good reason - Nosara is the shit. Warm waters, friendly locals, endless beaches, long point breaks, awesome nature, yogic vibes, and cold beer make this a veritable SurfYogaBeer Disneyland (without the lines and overzealous parents). Located on the coast of a Blue Zone where a large percentage of locals live to a hundred years or older, Nosara offers the kind of lifestyle that most yogis and surfers only dream about. Plus, our Casa De SYB is right on Playa Guiones, a beach perfectly suited to beginner surfers. This four-mile-long white sand beach has consistent wave breaks about a hundred yards offshore and catches most swells year round. Not to mention with its gradual typography that keeps waves from getting too big, it really is the ideal spot to learn to surf!

The Down and Dirty Details
We'll fly into Liberia Airport on the Monday Direct Jet Blue Flight 1691 ($450-$550), where a party bus will be waiting to take us down an hour-and-a-half joy ride to our destination. We'll jump in the water, enjoy chia seed pudding with fruit, and kick it off right with a sunset yoga session.
Surf! Surfing is not required, but we know you wanna. We will have lessons right on the beach, and if you decide to paddle out, we've got your back...even through those few inevitable wipe outs. If you're coming from NYC, simply keeping your feet in the sand might even be enough of a satisfaction. There will also be plenty of other activities like stand up paddle boarding, cruising on a boat, river rafting, beach running, rain forest treks, sea turtle spotting, and straight pool side chillin'.
Yoga! In such a calming, serene environment like Costa Rica, yoga sessions will give you a renewed sense of perspective and peace. Sunset yoga, recovery yoga, and sweaty yoga are all on our list. Don't worry if you have never practiced before - what better place to learn?!
As a break from the zen, there will be early morning SYB-style bootcamps in the form of friendly-competition beach games - followed by protein shakes and breakfasts. Which leads us to...
Food! Three dinners will be provided by our very own private chef and the other two we'll enjoy out at the local restaurants. Eddie Larios is the owner of a Latin Restaurant in SoHo called Salud, he is curating the food himself for every meal we have.
Beer! And of course, there will be partying. Staying true to our 10 commandments, our days are a cycle of detox-to-retox because hell, we're on VACATION. We're here to have a damn good time, not take ourselves too seriously, and leave feeling renewed in body AND spirit.
Pura Vida yourself into our SYB Nosara trip and make memories and bonds that last a lifetime.
