Originally, I set up my surf school coaching only for women. The company roots grew from female coaching. Our sessions combine solid and innovative surf techniques more suited to women’s bodies with ocean and self-awareness, etiquette, tides, rips and safety in the ocean.

The women’s surf sessions involve solid practical surfing techniques tailored to each individual body and its needs.

Melanie often includes your energetic, emotional and mind aspects as part of the sessions. It entirely depends on what you need in your session. Some people just want physical surf techniques like pop up work, paddling upgrades or foot adjustments. Others wish to become aware of their confidence blocks and fear energy.  Some need a combo of both. It’s all available.

She combines this with heart-based teaching methods – identifying fears, triggers, belief systems, meditation, breathing techniques and more. Basically, all the things that she has learnt and resolved on her own journey with surfing and life.

Fear can be a huge block for many female surfers and we would invite you to work with through it as a pathway to discovering the strength behind it rather than ignore it and push it away.
