There is an old saying; “the secret to happiness is to find something you love and make it your profession”. Well I love surfing and I love teaching. When I started the North Shore Surf Girls Surf School, I designed it to match the surfer lifestyle – in other words to fit in with what matters most – being in the water and catching waves. Some pleasant surprises happened along the way; sharing the joy of surfing with people while helping to make them more in tune with the environment tops the list. Also adopting the beaches we teach surfing at; who knew that keeping a beach clean could feel so good. Learning more about our Hawaiian culture and passing it on to my surf students – way neat! Getting much better at bodysurfing – always an item on my bucket list. Working close to home – the best! Love, love this life of teaching people how to surf!
