I hosted my first ‘Ohana Girls Surf & Fitness weekend’ on June 14-15 at Perranporth Surf School in Cornwall, and it could not have gone any better!
We were greeted by sunny skies and great waves on the first day of the event and the ladies were so excited to get in to the water!
The group was a mixture of eleven ladies, ranging from beginner to intermediate surfers with one complete novice…who managed to stand up! Whoop whoop!
We started off with a mini pilates/fitness session before suiting up and hitting the water on the first day of the event! Although the conditions were a little challenging on the first day we made the most of the waves on offer and it was so amazing to be able to share some waves with these ladies, who were full of smiles and laughter!
Day two was one of my most memorable teaching sessions…one of those days when you have the pefect combination of fun waves, great friends in the lineup and sunny skies!
The swell and wind had dropped off overnight and we had these perfect little 2ft glassy waves rolling in on the Sunday!
The sun was out, the ladies were catching some of their best waves, and for some their first green waves ever!
There was a lot of shouting and cheering going on and no one wanted to get out of the water!
We finished off the weekend with a delicious and well deserved cream tea at The Watering Hole, on Perranporth Beach.
The ladies also got creative with the Bekl Surf Bracelet workshop, while sipping on their tea and we ended off with a small prize giving which really left everyone buzzing!
The ladies also left with an ‘Ohana Girl’ goodie bag filled with some amazing products from my sponsors, which will keep them stoked for a while I am sure!
It was so wonderful to see so many familiar faces who made the journey from around the UK, as well as all the ladies I had the pleasure of sharing some waves with for the first time, I am sure it will not be the last!
Thank you to everyone who joined the weekend!!
I have to say a huge thank you to Gavin and his crew from Perranporth Surf School for allowing me to host this event and being so helpful throughout the weekend! They are such a great school with a great team of coaches, so if you are in Cornwall this summer then make sure you book some lessons with them!
Thank you to the Watering Hole for our delicious cream tea and the beautiful views!
