    Salt Water

    “The cure for anything is salt water – sweat, tears, or the sea.” – Isak Dineson This quotation is such a true statement.  I believe everyone who exercises regularly and has spent time in their life around an ocean or large body of water can truly relate to these words.

    Experiences Are What Make Life Worth Living!

    TIME TO GET THAT EXPERIENCE! Experiences are what make life worth living. I recently lost two family members who both lived long, happy lives but it really put things back into perspective for me that life is about creating memories and leaving legacies – not about how much money you made or how many great…

  • Get Yourself in Surfing Shape

    Most people who surf on a regular basis are strong, fit individuals in very good shape.  I cannot think of any professional surfer who isn’t in top physical condition.  However, surfing is a sport that requires both physical and mental strength.  It incorporates endurance, power, coordination, balance and most importantly, determination to commit to catching…

    It’s Not What You Know, It’s Who You Know!

    I’ve just returned from my first women’s surf trip that I organized to the North Shore of Oahu in Hawaii, typically referred to as surfing’s “Mecca.” It was my first time away from my boys, but I went with four great women, including my sister, Sherrie.
