Come to Cali!


Salty Sensations is a celebration of everything we love about the lifestyle of surfing- connection to nature, community, the brilliant joys of being immersed in the ocean and the present moment. 

A holistic outdoor experience, these retreats are an opportunity to deeply nourish your mind, body and spirit. - a chance to decompress, make new friends, eat delicious food at the water's edge, stay warm by a fire, expand and refine your surf technique and knowledge, and most of all feel the levity of togetherness. Kassia Meador and Leah Dawson have been friends for over 20 years, have traveled the world together and each have over 25 years of knowledge in surf technique and experience. They are thrilled to bring their vibrant energy, experience and knowledge to a one-of-a-kind surf retreat.

Rancho Santana Retreat - Nicaragua

This summer, we're hosting a super awesome co-ed retreat at Rancho Santana in Nicaragua's Emerald Coast. Join me and my good friend Eric Gross for a week of epic surfing, absorbing the energy of the sun, and salt water where the jungle meets the sea.

Gain a deeper understanding of the power of the ocean and uplevel your surfing while learning valuable skills from Eric and Kassia on this one of a kind collaborative retreat! After a day full of surfing, you will enjoy farm-fresh food, indulge in spa treatments and unwind with yoga classes to relax and nourish your body. Connect with yourself, nature, and community on a similar journey while making memories that will last a lifetime.
