Costa Rica: 15 - 22 February 

This week is presented by our friends at Casall, and each participant will receive a lovely goodie bag!

One of my biggest passions is getting more girls out in the water and just out there living a more active life.

When I first started surfing I spent so much time trying to connect with other girls who surfed and most of the time I had to travel alone because I didn’t have many friends in Sweden who surfed. With Ladyslide I want to create that place where all of us who don't have the beach as our backyard can come together to surf and get to know each other.

My wish with the Ladyslide weeks is to share my passion for surfing, but also opening up the community and giving a platform for new friendships to be made.

When it comes to surfing I want to celebrate and embrace the female athleticism, and being a part of creating a space where girls feel confident and ”at home” in the line up is my motivation. This concept is not supposed to be excluding and everyone (yes boys) are welcome. But to me there’s nothing better than when a group of girls run down to the beach to surf together. It’s relaxed, playful and so much more about having fun than about performing.

More information

My dream destination and where I first learnt to surf. With our base in the small and charming beach community of Encinitas, located just north of San Diego, we have the perfect California set up. Here we cruise around and surf at least two sessions a day. Enjoying our favorite breaks, from Cardiff Reef, Swamis, right outside the Beacons house to San Onofre, Trestles and Malibu in the north. When we don’t surf we’ll show you all of our favorite places. From where to find the best vintage clothes, to the best place to grab a coffee or the freshest fish taco, to where to get your hands on a locally shaped surfboard. Basically giving the sweetest guide to Southern Cal!

California offers waves for everyone and fall is the prime time to go - warm water, less people in the line up and nice weather. Perfect time to skip the wetsuit and throw on a swimsuit or springy.

Costa Rica

In Costa Rica we are based in the middle of the jungle in Santa Teresa, where you find the most gorgeous beaches and sunsets. Here we live in beautiful tree bungalows with a pool and yoga/work out deck. We have one surf lesson per day but since we live just steps away from where we surf one can easily surf all day. Every afternoon right before sunset we land in our bodies in a yoga or a meditation led by our yogini. With a nice 28-degree water it's the perfect place to become an ocean lady. 

Santa Teresa is filled with charming boutiques, cafés and amazing restaurants. When we don't surf we like to lay under a palm tree, take a walk along the beach or visit one of our favorite cafés. Basically the place to go if you want to surf A LOT, relax and live in the moment. It might even be heaven on earth!
