2017-2018
The North Shore Surf Contest Calendar is perhaps the biggest secret on the North Shore surf scene.  I’m not really sure why but the actual dates of surfing contest are not usually released until the month of October of the same year.  This is because the City and County of Honolulu only issues permits a couple of months prior to the actual event date.  Not going to comment on the benefits of doing this….

North Shore Surf Girl Food

By |November 13th, 2017|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Being a surf girl requires a lot more up keep then the bohemian beach lifestyle title implies. A proper diet is paramount to have the energy to teach surfing for hours each day while balancing the rest of one’s life. Raw organic foods are the key to success. We like to start our mornings with a raw green smoothie full of berries, bananas, leafy greens, papaya and other seasonal fruit freshly available from our local farmers markets. Drink a glass or two of these smoothies and you too will be able to spend hours and hours happily froliking in the surf everyday.

How to Stand Up Paddle Board

How to Stand Up Paddle Board

1. Start on calm flat water –  learning to surf waves with SUP will come after you’ve mastered the flats.
2. Begin on your knees and practice turning and controlling the board with your paddle.
3. To stand up get on your hands and knees holding the paddle on the board with your hands with your knees just behind the middle point of the board. Keeping your hands and the paddle on the board slowly place your feet where your knees are then looking forward slowly lift the paddle off the board with your knees bent at a 45 degree angle.
4. Paddle the board forward with conviction.
