Established in 2003, Surf Goddess was the first ‘surf retreat’ for women who want to go on a ‘surf camp’, but with all the inclusions found on a luxury vacation. The Surf Goddess coaching program was inspired by our founder, who was taught surfing by a woman, and realized that women learn surfing differently than men and that we needed our own approach for introducing women to surfing…at any age or fitness level.
From there, we developed a surf retreat program, that holistically addresses a woman’s unique physical strengths and challenges, our relationship with the ocean and our goals and intentions of why we want to surf.
Our mission is still the same today and it’s not just about teaching women how to surf on their retreat, but to help create a generation of women wave-riders who will share the soul of surfing around the world.
We have introduced thousands of women to surfing. If you have never surfed before, you will surprise yourself by standing up on the board by the end of your first lesson! We also respect that every woman is on her own journey and our women’s surfing program allows you to progress comfortably at your own pace throughout the week.
