Hi! This is Iva, I already introduced myself but let me tell you a bit more.
I never thought this community would grow so much.
I never thought I could live from my passion.
Like many of us, the profession I studied is not my passion: Dentistry. Haha!
I think that we are young and not so mature when it comes to choosing a profession, the best thing would be to travel the world and experience what we really like to do every day, what fills our soul.
I discovered my passion for surfing a bit late, when I was 27 years old. And after 2 years of having -more or less- intermediate level, I went on a trip to Morocco, where it all began.
A surf sister that I had just met told me: why don’t you become a surf coach?
I just laughed. But she planted that seed in me.
After about 4 years of surfing, I decided to create this community to simply share surfing with other girls. In Ecuador we are not that many and it was good to get together and surf together.
Little by little women began to ask me for surf lessons and I decided to share my knowledge with them, who were beginners or who had never surfed. And I realized that I enjoyed it a lot and that I could teach very well, and that all the women who took lessons with me came out successful surfing their wave.
Then I launched this surf travel agency and surf classes for both beginners and advanced women who want a surf guide through the different spots in Ecuador.
I wish that everyone has the feeling of riding a wave, that adrenaline, that freedom, that empowerment and that we can always surf together.
