This week we learned about the different parts of mother ocean: her calm, her power, her depth, her shallows, full of life and death. When we learn to love, understand, and work with her rather than against her all of a sudden a scary rip turns into an easier paddle out, a pounding wave turns into a tube ride, wild white wash has calm underneath to dive deep into. What if we saw all parts of ourselves like we see the ocean: eager to understand, and curious to play with. No longer running from our fear, anger hurt or sadness but being curious to understand it and creative to work with it and surf it
“There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself...to me this is the true essence of beauty” -Dr. Steve Maraboli

Surfing is so much more than standing up on a wave...surfing is those moments of stillness in between sets, those moments of awe, those moments of feeling connected and part of the whole, those moments of knowing you are exactly where you are suppose to be. You belong!

I can’t believe it was just two years ago that @groundswellcommunityproject changed my life. This year, I get to give back by volunteering to snap some shots of these beautifully stoked women as they set out on their own life changing experience. It’s been an incredibly fun and rewarding way to kick off the summer and I’m looking forward to all the weeks ahead! 🤙🏻🌊💙

Together we discover our unique joy, strength, balance, passion, and beauty...this is surfsisterhood! What is surfsisterhood to you?
“I hadn’t been in the ocean for over 30 years. Fear, addiction, self doubt, and more fear had kept me away. But today, at age 71, I dove into mother ocean! I didn’t just wade in, swim, and dunk under her waves...I surfed! Today, I did what I had told myself was impossible. If I could overcome my fears and surf today, imagine what I can do tomorrow!”
-Surfsister summer 2019
When we fall in love again with our bodies and mother oceans body we can’t help but be passionate about saving her. 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊
