In 2002, Tierza Eichner stepped onto the sand in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica and found the joy of warm water surfing, the paradise of mangoes and palm trees, the beautiful spirit of “pura vida” (celebrating all the good things in life)… and a passion to share this magical place with others. So she did! After saying “adios” to her dot.com job, buying a one-way ticket to Costa Rica, and navigating Central America as a single female entrepreneur, Tierza built a business and community celebrating the joy of surfing AND the beauty of Santa Teresa.
Since 2003, Pura Vida Adventures, a Costa Rica surf camp and yoga retreat, has brought the soul-changing, life-transforming, spirit-filling sport of surfing to people from all over the world.
