Episode 7 : Meet Amy Schwartz, co-founder of Unleash Surf

In today’s episode, I will be taking you to Peru where my guest Amy Schwartz has created a unique surf experience for digital nomads.

Amy and her Partner John Furness, founded a business that creates a remote-working experience for surfers with wanderlust. Their company, Unleash Surf has been featured in The Inertia, GQ magazine, and even Forbes as THE destination for digital nomads, entrepreneurs and freelancers who want to take a step back from their 9–5 grind and put a new perspective on their careers .

Amy is the loyal but mischievous person who convinced you to go night-swimming, eat too many mangoes and take the plane rather than the job. With her bursting energy, she tells us the story of how and why she and her partner came up with the idea to create a co-working space with self catered apartments opposite one of the most consistent waves on the planet.

“I know, for me personally, when I’m at my best is when I’m able to surf every day, see new things, feel new things, smell new things, taste new things, that’s when I have my best ideas, my best openness to the world.” — Amy Schwartz

In an age where digital nomadism, mid life crises and existential wobblies are on the rise, I think that Amy and John’s idea is brilliant. It’s amazing how a change of scenery and a surf can stimulate creativity, productivity and create community.

“All you have to do is show up.” — Amy Schwartz, Unleash Surf

I mean, what a great opportunity! Unleash Surf can be a life-changing experience as Amy explains in the show so I’ll let her do the storytelling…

I love the amount of thought that has been put into the Unleash Surf experience. It immediately made me want to book a trip to Peru. What the by-product of this incredible experience, is that the members of the local community of Huanchaco are capitalizing on the amazing guests who come to visit.

Amy, thank you for being such a lively and lovely guest!


Until next week, take care, have fun and enjoy the waves!
