From the founders of the original surf school for women, Surf Diva is both a witty, irreverently written lifestyle book and an informative how-to guide. Written with the Surf Diva School motto firmly in mind--"The best surfer in the water is the one having the most fun"--Surf Diva inspires women to suit up in neoprene and claim their share of male-dominated waves. Whether it's finding a welcoming beach or selecting the perfect surfboard, recovering from a wipeout or simply basking in the spirituality of the ocean, this book shows and tells you how to be a surfer with incomparable style and a healthy dose of beach attitude.

Offering advice from professional surfers, testimonials from surf students and instructors, and tips on how to stay safe while also having fun, Surf Diva is perfect for budding female surfers or any woman who has ever dreamed of catching a killer wave.

PRAISE FOR THE SURF DIVA SURF SCHOOL

"Surf Diva is the Starbucks of female-only surfing clinics; it's the model for scores of women's classes that have popped up around the world."-NEWSWEEK

"Surf Diva packed a real surf experience into two days. They taught camaraderie and chick power. They projected attitude, but not testosterone . . . Best of all, they got women . . . addicted to that rush of riding a wave. There is nothing like it." -LOS ANGELES TIMES
