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.

Spring Break is right around the corner.  If you don’t have plans yet you should consider either Schlitterbahn Waterpark in Galveston, who is celebrating their 10 year anniversary, or Schlitterbahn Waterpark & Resort in South Padre Island, who celebrating their 15 year anniversary this year!

Screen shot 2016-02-23 at 11.33.52 AM

The Galveston location has been voted the World’s Best Indoor Waterpark for 8 straight years!  They have more than 33 attractions and a Transportainment River system.  This year they’re unveiling the world’s tallest water coster, The MASSIV!

As with all of the Schlitterbahn Waterpark locations, South Padre has something for everyone.  It’s a 25-acre beachfront paradise where you can enjoy nearly two dozen world-class attractions, roar down 13 amazing indoor and outdoor water slides, or relax in their Seaside Pool.

One of the coolest things about South Padre Island location is that they also have a Trasportainment River system that connects 8 attractions including rapids, chutes and gentle currents to maximize your time in the water and eliminates line.

Their Beach Resort is awesome too.  Year round amenities include a heated swim-up pool, an indoor heated waterpark (open weekends and select weekdays), a carousel & more.  You can find their Stay and Play packages here.  What’s really neat is that they’ve found several ways to “go green”.  It has a retractable roof over the indoor waterpark that was built from an old greenhouse, lots of furniture that was built from salvaged trees pulled from road projects, and they use mulch from scorched trees that were recovered after wildfires.Screen shot 2016-02-23 at 8.02.05 AM

Based on my trip to Schillterbahn New Braunfels last year (you can read about that here) you’ll definitely want to take a waterproof camera or waterproof case for your phone to capture all of the memories you’re going to make.  We had such a blast last year, I can’t wait to visit Schiltterbahn this year.  Be sure to follow Schlitterbahn Galevston and Schlitterbahn South Padre Island on Facebook for all the latest info.
