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. After all, we believe that finding self-love is the first step toward a truly happy, healthy life —…

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. Bev, a former marketing director and co-founder of a successful snowboarding company, found her balance on the waves and immediately knew she wanted to offer that same experience to others.

As you may know, we recently celebrated our 100th episode of The Fit Bottomed Girls Podcast, and as part of the party, we went back through every ep to pick a few of the moments that stood out in our memories.
