We use surfing as our medium to empower women to become their fullest potential, with the hope of creating wellbeing in all areas of lives. 

We see surfing, not just about turning the surfboard but what is does to each and everyone of us on a soul level. 

At the core of all of our coaching we stand for the know more, do more which translate too (with more knowledge, awareness and understanding we have, the more we can achieve). 

Our surf coaching incorporates 8 key pillars all of which are an embodiment of the mind, body and soul, with a safe and nurturing space for you to explore your own potential.
