I used to have this routine when heading to the beach with my daughter, Taylor. We'd get up early, say 7:30 on a Saturday. We'd pack the cooler, throw our beach bags in the trunk and the surfboards on top of the car. I'd drive us over to our neighborhood Panera Bread for a breakfast … Continue reading Surf Girl Saturdays
You may be familiar with New Smyrna Beach, FL. It's a cute little beach front town in Central Florida. It's our little not so hidden treasure. We go there at least 3 or 4 times a year for surfing and beach time. It's definitely one of my favorite places. A few weekends ago my hubby … Continue reading Surfboard Shopping Part 3
I read an article last year that proclaimed that surfing is now officially a religion instead of a sport. I'm sure the group who decided this, did plenty of surveys and pulled statistics from various sources.

It was a very sad moment in my surfing history. This Saturday was the day. I was all siked … Continue reading DIY Surfboard Repair…Almost Fail
Every 3 years or so I try to make it out to the Easter Surf Festival at Cocoa Beach. I love it because it marks the beginning of the surf season for me. The water is starting to warm up and the sun is bringing the temperature nearer to 80 degrees. Before I got out … Continue reading Easter Surf Festival, Cocoa Beach
Ok, so to be honest with you, I haven't surfed in over a year. Not because I don't want to, but I was a little pre-occupied with getting married and working on our new house last year. Our one attempt at a beach weekend didn't turn out as planned. I don't know about you but I … Continue reading Spring Surf
