Holly Beck is a former professional surfer who has spent the last 11 years surf instructing and coaching primarily women (but also men) in Central America.

She is proficient at short boarding, long boarding, and finless surfing and believes the best surfer in the water should be able to ride anything.

Her coaching style is honest, detailed, and delivered with a lighthearted humor. She focuses on support and empowerment while delivering detailed technical tips and information on everything from ideal body positioning, breakdown of maneuvers, and equipment knowledge.

She has an undergraduate degree in Psychology, an MBA in Marketing, and is currently studying for a Masters in Counseling.

She is originally from Palos Verdes, CA but has spent the last eleven years living between Nicaragua and Costa Rica running women’s surf and yoga retreats with Surf With Amigas. She now has two young children that she surfs with regularly.
