Hey, Girls: Here Are 5 Essentials to Surfing



    10 Hidden Gems and Crown Jewels That Shine on Harbor Island
    Behind every surfer dude, is a surfer dudette -- or if one school has their way, a surf diva.

    The original all-girl surf school, Surf Divas in La Jolla has established itself as the number one surf school for women as of 1996. But since the mid 90’s, co-founders Izzy and Coco Tihanyi have helped it expand to so much more.

    Izzy, “The Surf”, and Coco, “The Diva” are twin sisters who founded this women’s surf school that now offers co-ed lessons to kids and teens, as well as gear, apparel, and paddle boarding.

    For those women who still haven't taken the plunge, the Tihanyi twins believe there are 5 essentials to learning how to surf:

    1. Know how to swim.
    2. Take lessons from a permitted school--you get what you pay for.
    3. Have fun (bring friends!) and don’t expect to be a pro your first day.
    4. Know the safety rules.
    5. Respect the locals and the environment.
