Thoughts On Surfing The North Shore

Surf School Daz

Surf school daz starts with waking up before the sun and setting up our North Shore Surf Girl company tent at the beach. Next we go to our favorite coffee shop in Haleiwa for our morning coffee.  Then it’s back to the home office to organize the day.

Paying it Forward

Paying it for forward always makes my day a little better.  Just yesterday while I was checking my mail at the Haleiwa Post Office a fellow mail checker commented on how he needed a pair of readers and how where he came from they only cost a $1 and how he was trying to get his life together.  Knowing how difficult it is to too function without readers when you need them, I gave him my pair ( I have at least 4 more pairs at home) and asked him to pay it forward.  My reward the knowledge that not only did I make his day a little better but the too would do the same for others… Paying it forward works!

Best Sunscreen for Surfing Lessons

Using the best sunscreen for surfing lessons is very helpful.  Step one purchase a sunscreen product that is reef safe and contains no oxybenzone, butylparaben, octinoxate or 4-methylbenzylidene camphor.  Step two apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes  before entering the water.  Step three apply it especially to the face, back of hands, ears, back of legs and any other place exposed to the sun.  North Shore Surf Girls surf lessons include the use of a long sleeve rashguard so you don’t need to apply sunscreen to your back or arms etc…

The Importance of Eliminating Single Use Plastics on the Ocean for Surfers

Every day I’m in the water teaching surfing lessons I see plastic floating in the ocean.  I always pick it up and stow in my wetsuit.  Sadly this increase problem of plastics in the world’s oceans continues to increase daily.   Eliminating single use plastics is one of the most important environmental issues we are facing.

How to Cross Step on a Longboard

How to Cross Step on a Longboard is one of the first tricks you can learn while surfing on a long board surfboard.  The secret is to push back on the board with your front foot as you quickly stepforward  with back foot and then bring your other foot back in front so as to uncross your legs very quickly.  To begin with step the back foot forward and then quickly pull in back. Sort of like a half step.

For the Love of Surfing

For the love of surfing keeps me sane.  The love of feeling the ocean caress my body and soul as I paddle out.  The kiss of the salt spay on my face brings a smile to me.  For the love of surfing I wake before dawn each day to check the surf. For the love of surfing I try to have a daily yoga practice.  For the love of surfing I’m a happy soul living a small life.  Virtually everything I do is for the love of surfing.
