Happy Birthday to Us... Las Olas is 10!

November marks Las Olas Surf Safaris for Women's 10th year of introducing women to surfing. Since 1997, we've taught more than 2000 women to surf thanks to glowing referrals from past guests and reviews like the recent one in the Malibu Times. They called us their #1 surf camp.

Even though Las Olas is growing up, that doesn't mean you have to. Our mantra is still "We make girls out of women."

It's a great time to join us and see what it's all about. And if you're an alumnae, we'd love to see you again. Sessions are full until April, so contact us soon for your spot later this spring or in 2007/08.

Las Verdes Tees Off!

Women from as far away as Southhampton, NY and Vancouver, BC joined us on the greens to celebrate the swinging success of our maiden voyage of Las Verdes Golf Safaris for Women. New golfers strolled onto the fairway at Quail Lodge in Carmel Valley, voted by Golf for Women magazine as one of the most women-friendly resorts in the USA. LPGA instructor Katherine Nino and her excellent teacher's aide, Lisa Sherman, guided the group through rounds of golf followed by rounds of cocktails. Naturally, each evening they were chauffeured back to Carmel-by-the-Sea's lovely Cypress Inn to dine and catch up on the day's events.

After three days of on-the-course instruction, our brand new golfers lined up their own tee times back home - the first sign of a healthy addiction.

Helen Gifford, of Southhampton, NY, didn't want to leave. She said, "If it weren't for the fact that my new set of clubs and golfwear were arriving home the same day as me, I'd be changing my flight to stay and play with the other guests who extended their vacation."

Somebody's going surfing!

You may recall, Athleta women's sportswear catalog Win a Surf Safari contest last summer. You may have even entered in the hopes that you would be treated to a week of sunny surf in Mexico. And you probably bought your bikini and packed your sunscreen in preparation for the day Athleta announced the winner. Well, that day is here, and if your name is Carol Wasp, personal trainer from Rocky River, Ohio, you're going surfing!

Carol will ditch chilly Ohio weather and join our Las Olas Surf Safari for Women just when she needs it most. "I never enter anything and was so surprised I won!" says Carol, "I'm looking forward to it."

We're looking forward to Carol's first safari, too. If she thinks winning was a pleasant surprise, wait until she catches her first wave.

This coming Spring, we'll be giving away two more safaris. Log onto and join their mailing list. That way you'll be the first to learn about their Spring '07 contest or call us at Las Olas (831) 625-5748 for more details.

Congrats Carol - see you in Mexico!
