We are in the Surf press! Surfgirl magazine recently interviewed our Senior Surf Sistas coach Allannah (aka. Alan), about her career as a freelance surf coach. What inspired her to surf, how being a nightclub shot girl wasn’t for her and how surf instructing has shaped her life in her 20’s.
When I’m coaching I remind students that the ocean allows us to be children again, it’s good for our brains, stimulating. Being with friends, old or new, taking party waves, enjoying wipe-outs, laughing. We surf to have fun not to be competitive or aggressive for waves, we surf to enjoy the ocean and learn something new, to be away from technology and immersed in nature. Surfing is a few hours of pure joy!
