Falling in Love with Surfing Everyday

By |March 2nd, 2015|Uncategorized|0 Comments

I remember first falling in love with surfing and waves one day as a young girl playing in the tiny shore break waves on an Eastside beach on the island of Oahu. While our family did not hit the beach very often, this day, while the sun burned my fair Irish skin, I remember the feeling of small waves breaking over my head and loving the feeling of being enveloped in water . Fast forwarding to the future and teaching surfing….everyday I thank the ocean for choosing me.

What Does It Feel Like to Surf?

By |January 11th, 2015|Uncategorized|0 Comments

There’s a well know saying in the surfing world,  “Only a Surfer Know’s the Feeling”.   I do know how it feels to get back into the surf after a hiatus of a week or two.  It’s heavenly…..the ocean is so pure in her heart and actions. She will do what she will do and some of us mere humans get to know her and even be friends with her…..the ocean is always a place I can go to seek refuge from the manusha of life on the land.  Paying bills, organizing, scheduling, even cleaning all are not possible in the ocean, especially while surfing.  It’s a kind of meditative place where one can must and only focus on the moment.  Surfing also brings a  feeling of peace, health,  happiness and especially freedom.

It’s Been an Amazing Ride Living on the North Shore of Oahu!

By |January 3rd, 2015|Surf Happenings, Uncategorized|2 Comments

Paddling out today on my way to work, I thought, wow who would have thunk 40 plus years later I’d still be living the dream on the North Shore of Oahu?  I tried to remember the first time I swam in her beautiful waters. I remember the first time I looked under the water at Waimea Bay with a mask, I freaked out and ran out of the water, blown away because it was so vast under the sea. I must have been 5 or 6 years old at the time and never would have dreamed of paddle out to the point to challenge myself in the waves. I remember Steve Albert, who still runs Rainbow school taking us students on field trips to bodysurf the shore break at Waimea and to swim through the secret tunnels of Sharks Cove. I remember riding The Bus from Kahaluu to Waialua to ride horses as a teenager and staring at the huge waves of Waimea memorized if only for a few seconds as we rode around the Bay in pre-traffic North Shore…..I remember my first time bottom turning at Pipeline….wow that was a cool day! So now so many, many years later […]

The Ultimate Cheat Sheet On North Shore Beaches

By |December 24th, 2014|Uncategorized|0 Comments

The Ultimate Cheat Sheet On North Shore Beaches, or what beaches are best for having fun surfing in the sun.
In the Winter months the North Shore surf can be large and dangerous, so it’s critical if your not a surfing expert to have a North Shore Surf Girl instructor show you the ropes if you want to learn to surf. Other then learning to surf with a certified surfing instructor, it’s best not to get in the water on the North Shore when the surf is big, if you must go to a life guarded beach on the North Shore and talk to the lifeguard BEFORE you attempt to go in the water. In the Summer most of the beaches are very safe as the water is rather calm, with the exception of a few exposed reefs…Waimea Bay is a favorite of both locals and visitors, it has lifeguards and a comfort station.
