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," notes Andrea Diaz.

"This is a program created for women, by women, and managed by an all-female team."

Costa Rica's national surfing champion is a Level Two surf instructor certified by the International Surfing Association (ISA).

Diaz's 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.
