Just like everything in Life, there are rules. Surfing is part of Life, so rules apply here as well. If you learn them, practice and follow them, then in surfing you can expect to be safer in every session, avoid potential injuries to yourself and others, but most importantly in my view, create a harmonious […]

Simple…immersion! Immersing yourself into a one or two day surf camp provides students so much more than a group surf lesson can. Spending an eight hour day in our Day Surf Camps, or two 8-hour days in our Surf Weekenders, allows women to connect and create new “surf sisterships”, become empowered with shared surf wisdom, […]
