A Sea of Gratitude

by Bev Sanders on November 27, 2013

I love going back to school at Las Olas. Instead of at desks, we sit on surfboards and talking to your classmates is encouraged, as long as you watch for waves!

I just returned from our November safaris and as usual, the women were amazing. I honestly think that the camaraderie at Las Olas could be a study in sociology. There’s an “all for one and one for all” code from the start. How they lift each other up proves their remarkable strength, kindness, and intelligence.

A recent alum described her week at Las Olas as “a wonderful, enriching experience. It’s a confidence booster – both in self-discovery and in the discovery of what we admire in women.”  By the way, she caught her first waves at age… applause, applause… 63!

There are so many things to say about the last two weeks on surf safari, but I keep remembering our crew, they set the pace. I call them future women- confident, strong, and thank goodness, they use their power for the good. They can transform from hello kitty to ninja dolphins and back when necessary. Each is an excellent host and a skilled waterwoman. I so admire their skill and focus.

And so to the Las Olas coaches, I’d like to say thank you. Like mermaid miracle workers, you’re making the world a better place, one surfer girl at a time.

See you in the waves,
