Travis Bays (@bodhisurfyoga) is the founder of Bodhi Surf and Yoga, which offers week long retreats in Costa Rica. Travis combined his lifelong passion for surfing with his ideas of tourism, sustainability, and local experiences.
Travis didn’t always run a surf camp though. He was a high level baseball player growing up and one day during college looked out to the ocean and decided that was his calling. After graduation from college, he got a job in banking and dedicated himself to that career. But he Travis was looking for more out of life, and so he decided to join the Peace Corps. Lucky for Travis, he was sent to Costa Rica.
Travis set up his camp as a way to educate people about the importance of taking care of the environment. He was able to use surfing and yoga as a vehicle to make the world a better place. And in this episode, we talk about his journey and how he is able to achieve these goals.
