What People Are Saying…

Really has outdone our expectations - Warm embraces, kindred spirits, really there to help. It all felt familiar pretty quickly, although we only had 1 group lesson and 1 private one (with an associate of Mary's that is). We put in faith that everything would work out with our minimum budget and little time (we live an ocean away and came on a hunch) and got so much in return. Seemingly effortlessly Mary made sure things were right for us. Thank you and your team for inspiring us so much!

Don’t let them tell you, you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Mary Osborne’s Surf & Yoga retreat in Ventura is the perfect fun, nurturing and safe environment to learn how to surf! You too can get up on that surfboard!! Thanks to Mary and her wonderful staff.

Mary Osborne’s yoga and surf camp was life changing! Living in Ventura watching all the guys in my life surf I always felt like the watcher. I was so nervous to get out there, and her class gave me the confidence to conquer my fear! She and her crew were knowledgeable and always right there when just when you needed them. I caught waves and stood up right away- Best Day Ever!! This is priceless in my book.

Mary made my bachelorette weekend the best weekend ever. No thanks to my lazy bridesmaids who didn't want to help, Mary stepped in and took care of everything! She welcomed us with a wine tasting and cheese plate when we arrived. Her wine guys were super fun and brought an array of different wines from the north coast to Ojai valley. The champagne and food never stopped coming and the hospitality was off the charts!
There was coffee and breakfast right when we woke up. She even took us out on a sunset boat ride around the harbor which was the best thing ever!
She went above and beyond and took us surfing and the activities never stopped! Mary's personality is vibrant and fun loving. She will cater to whatever type of weekend you are looking for.
The girl is a rare find! If you're looking to have a quiet getaway weekend or a raging party time, Mary makes it happen!
