Learn to surf, build ocean confidence, and have fun with the girls.

The best way to make sure you are getting out in the water consistently and improving your skills.

The Surf Sistas Club is an ongoing weekly surfing program designed to help women of all ages and skill levels learn to surf and build more confidence in the ocean.
