Surf Coaching, Yoga & Adventure
Why ISIY loves Surf with Amigas
Both ISIY Founder & Director (Stacey) & Brand Ambassador Director (Cydney) attended a retreat with Holly Beck Obermeyer, so they can wholeheartedly refer people to her retreats for their fun atmosphere, surf coaching prowess and well-rounded experience of adventure. It’s not just about the retreat experience though! We admire Holly’s support with Waves of Hope over the years, with her commitment and effort to give this important non-profit organization more exposure. You can see how passionate she is about helping the local community during your trip; she has made a genuine commitment to sustainable tourism in the area. On top of this, she’s also committed to protecting the environment and reducing her footprint through her and her husband’s website HipEhabitat, in which they build eco-friendly homes and furnishings while sharing their knowledge with others.
Stacey first saw Holly back in 2001 on the cover of a girls surf magazine and has been a big fan her style of surfing ever since. Watching her surf up close on the retreat was a special treat! Listening to her stories about how she first started surfing and got better were inspiring too; Holly has that kind of mentality where she wants something and goes after it! Holly is super fun, intelligent and fearless - plenty to admire.
Lastly, Holly has a knack for drawing in the best instructors and people to help her make the Surf with Amigas retreats such an incredible experience for her guests. The women that take over when Holly can’t be there are rock-solid surfers, instructors and all-around awesome people to spend time with. You will have a blast!
