Starting out as an all girls surf school back in 1996, co-founder Izzy was told she was crazy to start a school for women. With guys telling her she wouldn’t have any students since, “chicks don’t surf,” Izzy was determined to prove them wrong. Twenty- and Surf Diva has become the largest surf school on the West Coast – with an international presence in the global surfing community! Highly sought after speakers and now published authors, Izzy and Coco wrote a successful book, Surf Diva, A Girl’s Guide to Getting Good Waves, which sold over 30,000 copies. Awarded the #1 Women’s Retailer by SIMA, the Surf Industry Manufacturer’s Association, the Surf Diva flagship store is the ultimate place to live your dreams and play in the sand, sun and waves!
