moving together to get girls active and surfing
We are a bunch of surfers with a running problem! We saw a huge gap in the number of girls surfing and we decided to we would put on a race to raise the money so girls could learn to surf for free!
There are so many girls in our community who want to try surfing but can't afford lessons. We quickly realized that we needed to expand our efforts and offer services to these girls. This is how Surf Like a Girl and the Watergirl Fund were born.
Learning to surf is hugely empowering for all of the girls and women who go through our program as it builds confidence, community and camaraderie. Furthermore, it pushes the girls to try things outside of their normal sphere of comfort and, at Surf Like a Girl, we see that as an invaluable experience! We are partnering with local surf schools to create this invaluable surf programming and have succeeded in providing over 300 surf lessons in our first year alone!
