A journey out into the wild and into the human spirit. A full immersion into the surf lifestyle
"Polynesians believed that surfing was one of the highest levels of communion with the Gods. It was part of their Tiki religion. I created Liquid Sessions because I understand how important it is to interact with nature, connecting on a level deeper than mere observation. With this pursuit in mind I have traveled the world surfing and paddle boarding accumulating experience with all types of ocean and fresh water conditions. These experiences are what created a desire in me to share my knowledge with people, to ignite in them the same love, respect and passion for surf and adventure that I have.
Because for some people one wave can forever change their life."-
-Liquid Sessions Founder Donovan Burgess (Bio)
"Donovan is a really talented surf instructor. His explanations were clear, easy, and specific. He is so passionate and knowledgeable and is lots of fun! I felt extremely safe and confident with him, as well as inspired! Thanks for a great day and taking the time to teach us all about your world as a surfer! I would 100% recommend Donovan Burgess if your looking for surf lessons! He is the BEST!"
"If you find yourself in Nicaragua I recommend looking up #liquid-sessions . You will meet a man that has put his whole heart into doing what he loves! Donovan is one of kind, and the best surf instructor. I stood up on my second wave thanks to him. It’s a guaranteed good time and not only will you walk away having gained a new skill/hobby, you walk away with an unforgettable memory."
Being out on the board for the first time was an incredible experience... such respect for our beautiful oceans and feel charged by her power and her peace! Nothing more exhilarating than catching that wave or more breathtaking than sitting up and floating on a calm sea, soaking in the present moment! Donovan was such a great teacher and always made sure we were safe. I never thought I’d get up on my first try but he was right there with you the whole time, talking you through every step and encouraging you! Most of all we had fun! His vibe is brilliant and made the day super special by sharing his passion for surf! Thank you!
