Must Know Surfing Tips!

Choose the right equipment:

Select a surfboard, leash, and wetsuit suitable for your size and skill level. Ensure a proper fit and comfort. It’s important to note that these length and volume ranges can vary based on factors such as a surfer’s skill level, weight, and wave conditions. Beginning surfers often consult with surf instructors, local shapers or surf shop experts to determine the most appropriate board length for their specific needs.

Learn the basics:

Surfer Girl Hair Care

Surfer Girls especially those who teach surfing lessons every day in Hawaii, have special challenges when it comes to having nice hair.  While the sun does it’s job and bleaches it blond it also dries it out beyond belief!  On top of that the salt water and pull from the waves create added stress that would cause a super model to throw a cell phone at anyone.  So what’s a surfer girl to do?  After 20 plus years of surfing and teaching surfing and always looking like I had just stepped out of the ocean I decided to consult an expert – Emilia Perry. She’s a true North Shore Surfer Girl, Pipe charger on both a surfboard and bodyboard, a model and hair dresser at Salon Atlantis in the Haleiwa Market place – this is what she suggested.

1. Put coconut oil in your just before getting in to the surf -this is actually an ancient Hawaiian custom.

2. Wash with super good conditioner – I use a product made my Goldwell, it’s expensive but worth it.

3. Braid your hair before going in to the water.

4.  See a professional at least once every 3 months for a trim,

If you follow this advice […]

Why Teaching Surfing on the North Shore of Oahu is the Best Job in the World!

By |February 20th, 2010|Why Teaching Surfing on the North Shore of Oahu is the Best Job in the World!|0 Comments

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!
