This 2 hour mandatory training will prepare you to be a mentor in the water and on shore for our 8 and 4 week Surf Sister Sessions. You will learn the skills needed to hold a safe, brave, and creative space for women as they overcome addictions, abuse, trauma and depression by expressing themselves in the surf together. 

Groundswell Summer SurfSister Sessions are not a one and done experience, we have formatted 4 week and 8 week programs that build on themselves teaching surf and ocean safety skills, positive mind-body-earth relationships, trauma recovery tools for mental health awareness, and a long lasting community of surf sisters.
