We never need a reason to surf at Las Olas, but if you ask they’re countless. We sorted through the list and picked 11 favorites.
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. You’ll learn to relax and share while waiting in the line up. 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, everyone develops their unique surfing style. For example, from the beach you can spot a surf buddy just by the way they move. You’ll soon develop your own style, too.
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.
8. Lose the Weight… of the World
Yes, surfing is great exercise that will drop pounds, but the weight of your thoughts can hold you down, too. Surfing helps you focus and stay in the moment. It’s like taking a long, hot shower to wash away the weight of the world.
9. You’ll 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.
11. Reconnect with the Girl Within
Remember the little girl who loved to play all day in the sunshine? She’s out there in the lineup waiting for you to join her!
