Doomsday news and gender setbacks have been enough to discourage the best of us. There’s simply not enough wine or chocolate to nourish the weary.


That’s why we’re here to remind you there’s no better time to take time for yourself, stand up, and take your wave.

No matter what’s going on in the world today, we each have the potential to make a positive, lasting impression.
And it can all start with reconnecting with the girl inside to guide us.

1. Balance is Bliss

Balancing on a board on top of a wave teaches you to balance in life. You’ll find yourself intuitively knowing how to bend with the breeze and go with the flow. Surfing stirs intuition. It helps you connect with concepts you were born knowing– like how to have fun.

2. Surfing Teaches Patience

Being in the moment teaches you to pay attention and course correct to get to the most out of your ride. While waiting for a wave in the line-up, you’ll learn to relax and share. In a culture of instant gratitude, watching the swell with your fellow surfers gives you a chance to savor the thrill of anticipation.

3. Surfing is a Healthy Addiction

Surfers are so hooked on the stoke that they instinctively take care of their bodies. They look for optimal fuel to get them through the next surf session. That’s why they order smoothies instead of coffee, water instead of wine, and look amazing!

4. Develops Your Own Style

After learning the basics from a professional, everyone develops their unique surfing style. When you’re sitting on the beach, you can spot a good friend just by the way they move. Every surfer’s style is unique and you’ll soon discover your very own.

5. Impress Others… & Yourself

Yes, kids and boyfriends may think you’re cool because you surf. What they don’t know is that the real reason you’re larger than life is because surfing can improve your self-image. Now that’s always attractive!


6. Explore New Fashions

Surfer girls wear great clothes. All the gear from bathing suits to surfboards come in happy colors, not just black, white, and grey. Add a natural tan, let your hair go, and you’re officially hot!

7. Surfing Keeps You Young

Attitude plays a big part in how you look and feel. The thrill of surfing keeps you young at heart and shines through everything you do.

9. You’ll Lose the Weight of the World

Yes, surfing is great exercise that will drop pounds, but it’s also the weight of your thoughts that can hold you down. Surfing helps you focus and stay in the moment. It’s like taking a long, hot shower that washes away the weight of the world.

9. Go Find Your Tribe

Surfing connects you to a tribe, and surf buddies last forever. It also connects you to something greater– the ocean and nature. It’s out on the water that you realize we’re all interconnected and that planet earth is a really, really incredible place to be.

10. Riding a wave is empowering

As women, we are instinctive caretakers and, if empowered, the whole world benefits. We each have the potential to make positive, lasting impressions around us, no matter how uncertain things may be.
