Experience is life’s greatest teacher, but before we ventured into the world on our own, we first listened to our mothers. From saying our first words, to waiting for our turn, and to saying sorry, the most important life lessons were learned at home.
What if our mothers also taught us how to do a proper cutback or duck dive? Next-generation surfers like 7-year old Kai Alcala and 9-year old Alana Blancada Rietenbach have their moms to thank for more than just the alphabet.
We caught up with some of these stylish surfer moms and learned what they thought of surfing, motherhood, and all the joys in between.
