Volunteer Program

We offer volunteer opportunities all year round. Learn how to surf, practice your Spanish, and do yoga all while gaining experience working in the international tourism field.

Our volunteer opportunity is for a Live-In Assistant.

We currently have availability for:


November 2017



In exchange for room and board, you'll help out around the place. Your tasks will include: entertaining guests, assisting at meal times, scheduling adventures and activities, packing surfboards away at the end of the day, and blogging to our website.

Many of our previous volunteers have learned to surf during their stay with us and greatly improved their ability.


You're required to give a $300 deposit, which will be returned at the end of your stay. First time volunteers may stay for up to 6 weeks.

If you're interested, please email your resume to Mike at shakaservices@gmail.com

Be sure to include the dates you are available, what country you are from, your previous travel experience, and languages spoken. If you have any special talents or skills such as photography, video editing, or website design, be sure to let us know.

We receive many applications, so please be patient to hear back from us. Thanks!
