Schlitterbahn New Braunfels and Schlitterbahn Galveston hosted the very first National Women Learn to Surf Day on Wednesday, 07/12. I was glad that my girls (ages 11 & 13) and I were invited to be a part of it. We received lessons from mom/daughter surfing champs, Cathy and Morgan Seabert, who were amazing. We surfed on the Boogie Bahn, which is actually the very first inland surfing ride ever invented.
All ages were represented, from the young to the young at heart, as more than 2 dozen ladies were selected for each park. We cheered each other on as each of us took a turn on the Boogie Bahn. Everyone was so supportive and encouraging.
The Boogie Bahn has been around since I was a teen, but I’ve never had the courage to try it. After all these years I can finally say that I’ve tried it (I have the tattoo to prove it 😉 ) and I was actually decent at it (that’s me in the pic). It had me feeling like a kid again and wanting to come back for more. I’m hoping next time to maybe master a spin.
If you’ve never tried your hand at the Boogie Bahn, I highly recommend it. Private lessons are available as an add-on to your Schlitterbahn ticket. For $25 you’ll receive a lesson before the park opens, between 9 am – 10 am. You can sign up here.
