Pointe Break Retreats

Pointe Break is a unique marriage of two athletic disciplines, surfing, and ballet. It is the brainchild of two women who believe that the ‘dance’ on land and on sea complement each other perfectly, and can be simultaneously your greatest challenge and greatest release. By partnering surfing with ballet fitness in the most exquisite places on earth, Natalie Sageloly and Jennifer Nichols have created an experience which appeals to the need to explore, to push, and to escape. This is a retreat that is both artistic and athletic.

Our daily surf lessons and Extension Method ballet fitness classes are designed to improve your strength, stability, agility, and flexibility, as well as give you the motivation and confidence to find your balance not just on the water but in everyday life. Previous surf or dance experience is not required, and the program is designed for all levels of fitness. Tempted to try something that nudges you out of your comfort zone? Pointe Break Retreats will help you develop both the long, lean physique of a dancer and the fearless, strong spirit of a surfer.


All Pointe Break meals are created with local, organic ingredients by chefs sourcing fresh selections daily. They are healthy and nourishing, yet there is no deprivation here.  Expect flavour, originality, and healthy desserts too!  Have dietary restrictions?  We will happily cater to your needs. Our aim is to offer you delicious local cuisine; a taste of Costa Rican culture.
Pointe Break Retreats’ home base is Nosara, Costa Rica; well known for its exquisite surf, lush jungles and colourful lifestyle. A quaint, sleepy surf town, Nosara possesses that rare appeal, the call to adventure and to restoration. Aside from Costa Rica, we handpick retreat locations with a similar exclusive and untouched feel. Consciously removed from a ‘resort’ vacation environment, our retreats offer luxury amenities and stunning vistas, where you may find yourself on an isolated beach with no one in sight or lulled to sleep in a hammock by the chatter of monkeys.
We have created a balanced retreat which encourages connection with yourself and with fellow Pointe Break guests. An intimate scale is vital to us, and as such we limit our number of guests to respect your privacy and allow true connections to form.
At Pointe Break Retreats we understand the value in supporting local business and community.  We partner exclusively with local services and those who likewise demonstrate environmentally and culturally sustainable actions. Our custom Pointe Break Rashguards are made of 100% recyclable material! We also encourage charitable donations to local schools and organizations.
