It’s something we believe in. It’s something we strive to do on our podcast (although, to be honest, we’re always learning!). And it’s something that we applaud these podcasts for doing episode…

This time of year, it feels like love is in the air. Valentine’s Day isn’t for everyone — and I totally get it — but even if you aren’t all that into making a grand gesture of love on a specific day in February, you have to admit that it’s awfully nice to have love and kindness front and center. via GIPHY I mean, if there’s anything we love with our whole hearts around here, it’s love itself, in all its forms.

Bev Sanders founded Las Olas Surfing for Women (the first women’s surfing retreat) in 1997 at the age of 44 — the same year she learned to surf.

Her goal: to make girls out of women. And that’s a goal she’s achieved time and time again. Bev is passionate about helping women find time to play in a supportive (and gorgeous!) environment in a way that helps them see that feminism…
