Overview

AWA’s first Surf and Skate retreat is totally unique in the sense that few retreats offer skate instruction. Meaning you will not only learn the skateboarding basics, but also you will be able to improve your surfing techniques out of the water through surf skate training. We will be learning skate basics, including bowl training to finally learn how to skate in your local park! Lucy, co founder and creator of GRLSWIRL, specializes in beginner instruction and will create a comfortable and patient space for you to learn step by step!   Expect sensational handmade food, jaw dropping nature, patient instructors and the opportunity to experience Santa Teresa like a local. You will be hosted at all times by an amazing community of like minded women that share only good vibes and inspire through their simple and mindful way of living.

LUCY OLINSKY

Lucy, an ex ballerina / ex organic farmer from Cornwall New York, started skating in early 2017. She fell in love with how empowered and liberated she felt from skating and passionately wanted to get others on boards in order to experience the same momentous feeling. In 4 short years Lucy and a team of literal super women, created a movement with their company GRLSWIRL, which has blossomed into a skate community of over 1000 women, trans and non binary folks in multiple cities all empowering one another through skate. As creator, CEO and co founder of Grlswirl, Lucy’s life mission is parallel to GRLSWIRLS mission; to empower women through skateboarding and cultivate grassroots community where ever she steps foot. She has taught hundreds of folks to skate of all ages, levels and backgrounds and is deeply passionate about sharing skate with others, and the liberation that comes with that. She lives in Venice beach and besides running GRLSWIRL, she is also a photographer, social strategist, surfer, van lifer, culture obsessed sponge, and community leader.

Lucy and her work for GRLSWIRL has been featured in Oprah Mag, CNN, Yahoo, ESPN, NowThis, The Cut and more.

MONA PICASSO

MONA PICASSO

Mi name is Andrea “Mona” Picasso. I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and moved to the beach town of Mar Del Plata when I was a little girl. It was here where i first fell in love with the sea and started surfing at the age of 14.

Ten years after I booked a ticket for my first solo trip to Costa Rica, following my passion and my desire to explore the world. Santa Teresa was my favorite destination and where I wanted to reshape my life. Here i set myself free, felt in love and built a family. In this new lifestyle, the ocean became my natural temple and my daily playground.

I enjoy so much being outside adventuring with girlfriends that i became an ISA surf instructor and a ILS Life Saving to be able to share my passion and knowledge with many others. For the past 6 years I’ve been introducing women to the ocean and teaching them how to surf.

Today i feel so fortunate to be able to share this beautiful paradise with women from all over the globe, empowering each other and having fun in the waves together. Im excited to turn your adventure of learning how to surf into a wonderful life changing experience, much love, Mona.

GIULIA VALLOTTO

GIULIA VALLOTTO

Hi! Hola!

My name is Giulia Vallotto and I was born and raised in a small town in northern Italy called Bassano Del Grappa. My hunger for adventure got me to move to the States to chase the American Dream when I was a teenager.

I spent most of my adult life jet setting from Coast to Coast in the fashion industry and living between Miami and NYC. One day I decided it was time to trade the glamorous city life for a sun kissed barefoot kinda living. I left it all behind and moved to Santa Teresa where I found my home.

I am now so honored to host women from all over the world and to share with you all my passion for the ocean, this wild nature and the amazing community I get to call family!

The AWA Refuge

HOUSE OF SOMOS

SOMOS is a place where the global adrenaline seekers, artists, builders, and adventurers come together to share a common goal. It's a destination for the few who can appreciate its true value of discovery; insatiable explorers who want to be part of something radical, something that satisfies all senses. Everyone has a story to tell: this is the place to spark conversation and create lifelong bonds. The goal is life; ride bumps, get bruises, strike laughter. Reconnect with what was thought to be lost. Foster new relationships. Nourish yourself. Be happy.
