Our Surfari Girl’s Feedback:

I thought that this camp was lots of fun. I liked paddle boarding, because the water was so clear and you could see everything. I loved Jenny's cooking, it was so yummy. The day trips were exciting, I liked to see all of the surfboards being made. Of course I loved waking up and going surfing every morning. Hanging with all of the girls was fun and entertaining.

I liked how welcoming everyone was on the first day. I hadn't surfed much before but all the instructors were great and made me feel super comfortable with my surfing abilities. All the guest speakers were really cool and I thought the meditation was fun. The bonfire was also really fun. It was really awesome how we got a lot of cool stuff everywhere.

Surfari Girl B

I thought that Mary's camp was very fun and a wonderful experience. I loved the food, thank you again Jenni (heart symbol), and being so close to the best beach in Ventura CA. The instructors were very helpful and made any stay very fun. I also loved it how we got to surf and paddle board and do a bunch of cool stuff in the water. Plus, the goody bags and trips downtown were so fun and amazing. There are too many things that I liked to mention. 🙂

Surfari Girl C

I loved everything that we did this week. I really liked being able to surf later in the day. I also liked being able to paddle board and frolick. Everyone was super sweet and I enjoyed making new friends. I had a really great time doing all of the extra things you had set up like the trip to Patagonia and the art class. I enjoyed everything and I am going to sign up next year too! 🙂
