Happy earth day!!!!!! 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊
To be a surfsister is to paddle out everyday into self love, sea love, and sisterhood. This summer over 50 local girls joined us in Huanchaco, Peru for our summer Surfsister Camp. They learned how to surf but more importantly surfing connected them with their bodies and mother oceans body instilling a passion and love to take care of these precious, valuable, and strong bodies. Here’s their love letters to mother ocean using trash from that days beach clean up. What would your love letter to mother ocean say?
You can support your Peru surfsisters as they catch the surf stoke and do their part to save the waves of Huanchaco, Peru (a @savethewavescoalition World Surf Preserve). Message us to purchase one of their unique full moon pendants made from up cycled plastic spoons collected from the beach during their beach clean ups. 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊
Let us be the wave of change we want to see in this world for women and waves!

“One of the things I like most about surfing is that it is both an individual and community experience. We can all be in the water together, going through shared situations, but perceive it in vastly different (or similar) manners. It’s so easy to become disconnected from Mother Earth, now more than ever. The groundswell Surf Therapy sessions are a potent reminder of who we truly are, where we come from, and guide un into mindfulness and presence” -Groundswell surfsister 🏄🏽♀️🏄🏿♀️🏄🏾♀️🏄🏽♀️🏄🏿♀️🏄🏾♀️
Join us this summer to see how Surfing mother ocean can bring more presence, mindfulness, and intentional surfsisterhood into your life

2018 the magic surf bus brought surfsister stoke from baja to San Fransisco; Shakas, smiles, and surfy connections followed her from highway to beach parking lots and 2019 we are excited to let her outsides display even more loudly the beauty, strength, healing, and empowerment that she carries within her to each surf therapy session! Let the creativity flow!

This past weekend women form all different parts of the world (#peru #usa #spain ) came together and bravely paddled out into some heavy fast waves for the local surf comp. The line ups were full of high fives, laughter, cheers, and stoke! We all were brave, paddling out to show the world that yes we can! And yes we belong! We are women making waves!
