Las Olas Surfing for Women

It’s 3pm and I’m writing this from my living room. I’m in my living room because it’s also now my office. Our town was one of the first in California to get the “shelter-in-place” order, so we’ve been tele-commuting. Well, more tele-ing, less commuting.

It has its benefits. I have plenty of snacks, the dress code is stay-in-your-home casual, and the break room has a bed in it.

At Las Olas, we’ve been learning everything we can about germs, hand washing, and flattening curves. So, I decided to take a short break and go back in time to reminisce about what life was like before COVID-19. Below are some snapshots of our February 2020 surf retreat.

It may not seem appropriate to share vacation photos when so many people are fighting for their lives, or the lives of others. But it may also be a welcome reminder that if we help each other, do the right things, and look ahead, we will paddle beyond the tumbling whitewater and make it outside again.

I hope our slideshow brightened your day. They remind me of what every surfer already knows–keep paddling through the crashing sets and you’ll find joy on the outside.

Can’t wait to see you in the waves,


I don’t have to remind you, but please follow the advice of your local health experts.

• Maintain at least two arms length from your neighbor

• Wash hands vigorously and often

• Stop touching your face

• Stay home,  if advised
