National Women Learn to Surf Day at Schlitterbahn Waterparks!

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Schlitterbahn Waterparks.

I’m so excited that Schlitterbahn New Braunfels and Schlitterbahn Galveston will be hosting National Women Learn to Surf Day this month!  Lessons will be taught by surfing champs Cathy and Morgan Seabert at both the New Braunfels and Galveston parks.

My favorite part is that I’M INVITED!  The one thing I’ve been too chicken to do at Schlitterbahn all these years is ride the Boogie Bahn.  Ok, there are really two things, but I’ll tackle the SkyCoaster another day. Really my fear of the Boogie Bahn is the embarrassment of not knowing what I’m doing, but if I’ve got the experts there to teach me I’m gonna learn.  I can’t wait to see my girls (ages 11 and 13) try it out too.

If you want to get in on the fun you can email at social@schlitterbahn(dot)com and put I WANT TO SURF IN NEW BRAUNFELS as the subject.  They will draw 2 dozen winners on 07/09, who will each be able to bring a guest.  If you’re chosen you’ll learn to surf in the morning and then you can stay and play in the park all day for FREE.  Here’s all you need to know about this event.  I hope to see you there.

National Women Learn to Surf DayWednesday, July 12, 2017

Schlitterbahn Waterparks will be celebrating National Women Learn to Surf Day with lessons at both New Braunfels and Galveston parks.

National Women Learn to Surf Day will feature inland surfing champions/mom & daughter duo Cathy and Morgan Seabert. Both will be on hand to teach women how to surf on the park’s inland surf ride, the Boogie Bahn, as a way to raise the profile of women in this sport and celebrate Women of the Wave.

Background: Schlitterbahn New Braunfels was the site of the invention of inland surfing, and now the ride has expanded to locations – including cruise ships – around the world.  Every week world Champions, Cathy and Morgan give lessons to aspiring surfers, but most are boys and young men.  To attract more women to the sport, Schlitterbahn has declared July 12 as National Women Learn to Surf Day to encourage girls and women to take their turn on the world’s most perfect wave.
