Surf Diva’s certified instructors educate burgeoning wave riders of all ages and abilities during Party Wave classes, illuminating coed groups of students on the basics of catching curls. Over the course of 90 minutes, pupils learn the fundamentals of water safety, wave breaks, paddling, balance, and popup techniques from the resident toaster.
The two-day women’s weekend surf clinic, which takes place every weekend throughout the year, introduces ocean-loving ladies to wave riding techniques and hang-ten lifestyles. Across the span of two hours each day, wave women will learn the skills necessary to feel confident and comfortable in the water from catching a wave to communicating with shy dolphins. Enrollment includes all necessary equipment, including wetsuits, ultrabuoyant foam surfboards, and rash guards.
When twin sisters Izzy and Coco Tihanyi decided to pursue a career that combined their passion for surfing and their love of the ocean, their calling came in the form of starting Surf Diva. Before long, they were on course to becoming a lauded school for coed surfers in California and Costa Rica. Augmenting the pair's teachings is their team of certified instructors, all graduates of their school's intensive training program and certified in CPR and first aid. Committed to their expertise in surfing, many of the instructors also hold down careers as firefighters, paramedics, and snowboarders, granting them the combined know-how to put out beach bonfires with a casual backflip.
The team's instruction ranges from coed group lessons and competitive coaching sessions to two- or five-day women’s weekend surf clinics. When they're not teaching surfing, crew members commit themselves to alternative teaching programs in yoga and standup paddleboarding, helping surfers to conquer the water with their bodies as well as with their very buoyant hearts. The twins' Costa Rica program also helps women and families hone boarding skills abroad while becoming fully immersed in the Costa Rican culture.
