Beginner's Bay

The Best “Learn to Surf”  Break in Nicaragua, Beginner's Bay

Wave of your Life

Learn Faster

It is a very long, easy, and friendly wave. Perfect for learning surf. The waves at Beginner’s Bay are not overwhelming like most of the Pacific Coast beaches.



Guaranteed to Surf 

We didn’t wake up one day and decide to take a week-long course to be surf instructors. Our teaching credentials come from years of surf training and learning from the best institutions and teachers in the outdoor education business.

Good Vibes

Beginner’s Bay has a really good vibe. Everyone in the water is there to learn to surf and to have fun. ​



Tropical Paradise

It’s naturally beautiful. Surfing right next to the giant magnific rock makes for a powerful experience. Add a perfect sunset, and the wave of your life, and you will never want to leave.

" I highly recommend Liquid Sessions, especially for families. Our daughters, 15 and 13, and our son, 11, had the most memorable and epic time! They all stood up on the first try and rode a ton of waves on their own, within an hour."

- Adrian Kaali

"Best Surf Camp in Nicaragua"

It is not enough to watch a Youtube video and rent a longboard if you want to know the ocean, the surf break. Observing, studying, paddling, duck diving, and surfing the waves, living it sun up to sundown, is how you will truly connect. Liquid Sessions Surf Camp is a full immersion experience into the ocean and the surf lifestyle.
