Andrea Diaz, a pioneer female surfer in South America, will lead a surfing program exclusively designed for women.

Dias is one of the most successful female surfers in Latin America. She started as a competitive swimmer, but it was in surfing that Andrea showed all her talent.

The surfer from San Jose, in Costa Rica, is putting up surf retreats in a tropical surf spot. The surfing experience includes fitness instructions, yoga classes, healthy lifestyle tips, and wave riding lessons.

"It is my dream to lead a program for all female surfers. I know what it is like to be a woman in the water, and I believe it is my instinct to be a teacher, mentor, and motivator. This is a program created for women, by women and managed by an all-female team," notes Andrea Diaz.

Costa Rica's national surfing champion is a Level Two surf instructor certified by the International Surfing Association (ISA). Diaz' surfing program will take place at Witch’s Rock Surf Camp, in Tamarindo.

The seven-day retreat kicks off in 2016 and costs $1,900 for a single room. The available dates for 2016 are January 9th-16th, February 6th-13th, March 5th-12th, and April 9th-16th.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) approved surfing's qualification system for the Tokyo 2020.
