Our community mission is to:

  • Create a positive community among local surfers at all local surf breaks.
  • Support surfing to women of all ages and all levels of surfing abilities. .
  • Organize coaching sessions, social events and travels together on Surf Safaris.
  • Use surfing as a lifestyle activity to promote health and wellness.
  • Help protect coastal resources and be a positive influence in the community.

Salt Water Divas is a dynamic and diverse sisterhood, and encourages women of all ages and levels to develop surfing skills, have fun, and share the stoke.
