Las Olas at a glance
At Las Olas, surf lessons go beyond the surfbreak. We also promote positive reinforcement through It’s Your Wave, our upbeat, surf-centric workshop that focuses on the intellectual side of riding waves. We believe that cultivating a quiet mind along with a healthy dose of encouragement not only helps overcome challenges, but also frees us to focus, advance, surf better, and achieve anything with more confidence. You’ll experience guided meditation, visualization, journaling, and tips for staying sharp and positive in the lineup and beyond.
Your Las Olas surf safari isn’t complete without a restorative massage during your vacation. It’s essential to loosen and relieve tired muscles, increase circulation, and help your worries drift out to sea. Las Olas therapists are completely in tune with our surfer girls, they’ve been treating us for years. Swedish, deep tissue or sports–it’s up to you.
