Izzy and Coco are the founders of Surf Diva Surf School, the original surf school for women, and it is their aloha attitude, their supremely contagious sense of fun, and their incomparable style (both surfing and fashion, of course) that has helped make women's surfing one of the fastest growing sports in the US.

What everybody's saying about SURF DIVA SURF SCHOOL

"Surf Diva taught camaraderie and chick power. Best of all, they got women . . . addicted to that rush of riding a wave. There is nothing like it." -Los Angeles Times

"When I finally stand up, Izzy goes nuts. "Take it all the way in!" she screams, and I do. All the Divas, scattered around us in the water, start whistling and applauding.... I am so proud of myself, I could cry."--Jenna McCarthy, Shape

"Surf Diva is the Starbucks of female-only surfing clinics."-Newsweek

As featured on the Today show and MTV, and in Time, USA Today, the New York Times, Elle, Marie Claire, Women's Sports and Fitness, and InStyle.

In 1996 twin sisters IZZY TIHANYI and COCO TIHANYI founded the Surf Diva Surf School, the original all-girls surf school, where each year they teach thousands of women and girls to surf.. Izzy and Coco live (to surf) in La Jolla, California.

Synopsis:

From the founders of the original surf school for women, Surf Diva is both a witty, irreverently written lifestyle book and an informative how-to guide. Written with the Surf Diva School motto firmly in mind--"The best surfer in the water is the one having the most fun"--Surf Diva inspires women to suit up in neoprene and claim their share of male-dominated waves. Whether it's finding a welcoming beach or selecting the perfect surfboard, recovering from a wipeout or simply basking in the spirituality of the ocean, this book shows and tells you how to be a surfer with incomparable style and a healthy dose of beach attitude.

Offering advice from professional surfers, testimonials from surf students and instructors, and tips on how to stay safe while also having fun, Surf Diva is perfect for budding female surfers or any woman who has ever dreamed of catching a killer wave.

PRAISE FOR THE SURF DIVA SURF SCHOOL

"Surf Diva is the Starbucks of female-only surfing clinics; it's the model for scores of women's classes that have popped up around the world."-NEWSWEEK

"Surf Diva packed a real surf experience into two days. They taught camaraderie and chick power. They projected attitude, but not testosterone . . . Best of all, they got women . . . addicted to that rush of riding a wave. There is nothing like it." -LOS ANGELES TIMES
