About the Summit

Tired of going to sales conferences in the same old cities, in huge hotels full of thousands of vendors trying to sell you something?

We are too, so we’re changing the game. 

This year, skip the Marriott in Philly or the Hilton in Orlando, and join a small, select group of industry leaders in Playa Grande, Costa Rica, for deeper learning, more meaningful relationships, and an experience that will transform you and your business.



We think this is what a conversation about scaling your sales org should look like.

There are few better opportunities out there to really master Sales Leadership like spending a week with Richard and other VPs. Having run over 50+ highly attended Sales Hacker Webinars, he knows how to get the real key learnings out of leadership. This should be an epic experience.
— Max Altschuler, CEO of Sales Hacker Inc.

"I'm thrilled to be joining for the first inaugural Sales & Surf Summit to share my expertise on Sales and Customer Success Operations and running a customer retention oriented organization from top of funnel through the full customer lifecycle. I'm greatly looking forward to learning from my cohorts, getting past the standard networking fluff and diving into real problem solving exercises with the other attendees. It's going to be immensely valuable, and I can't wait. Also stoked to finally (hopefully) learn to surf!" - Claire Morris, VP Customer Success @ ShippingEasy

The Surf & Sales Story

Scott Leese and Richard Harris are two of the top sales leaders and startup consultants in the U.S.

S&S Founder Scott Leese on what to expect at this year's Summit

The idea for Surf & Sales came to them during a vacation with their families in Costa Rica. Nobody wants to spend their vacation talking about work, but sitting on a pristine, golden beach enjoying a well-earned tequila after an evening surf session, the conversation turned to their shared passion for sales. It was undeniable: in that setting, thousands of miles away from the office, the ideas, insights, and inspiration simply flowed much more freely. They were thinking creatively, challenging each other, covering new ground.

Then it hit them - what if they planned a surf trip not to escape their work, but to embrace it, explore it, and share it with others?

And what if they surrounded themselves with a small, select group of peers and aspiring sales leaders from around the world, to share not only their knowledge but also the kind of life experience that builds relationships that last? And what if it all took place in paradise, against the backdrop of learning (or just enjoying!) one of the most challenging and rewarding adventure sports on earth? 

The answer was simple - it had to happen - and Surf & Sales was born.



Scott Leese and Richard Harris are two of the top sales leaders and startup consultants in the country. Join them and a select group of powerful sales leaders, along with some very special guests in Playa Grande, Costa Rica for SURF & SALES 2018!
