A Dream Come True…at last! As the Director of NW Women’s Surf Camps for the last 16 years, one of my dreams has been to have OPB’s Oregon Field Guide cover our unique women’s focused surfing program. I reached out to them numerous times over the years to no avail, but I kept persevering, hoping […]

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 […]

When I first started surfing waves in the mid 80’s, it was on a bodyboard with swimfins. In the late 70’s and early 80’s, I was living at Rocky Point, on Oahu’s infamous North Shore, working and putting myself through college and I had never surfed waves before, having grown up in Oregon and being […]

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, […]

For me, it’s always been all about the fit! When I started surfing in the mid 80’s along the North Coast of Oregon, there wasn’t a selection of women’s cold water wetsuits to choose from, in fact there was no cold water wetsuits for surfing being made for women. You could find thick dive suits […]
