SHE was thrilled to bits, and very humbled, when we received an email from one of our recent guests; she was writing to share her thoughts and experience on the trip. Hannah travelled with her Mum and sister on our SHE surfs Mothers' Day trip in May. Here's what she had to say about her time in Bali with us:
"SHE surfs showed me an entirely new side of Bali – one that I can’t wait to return to. Going into the trip, I wasn’t sure six days could really provide the rejuvenation and relaxation that I needed, least of all be enough time to get me surfing with confidence. But with Suzanne, Frengki, and Putu there to walk me through it, I came out the other side ready to quit my job, move to Bali and surf full time instead!
Frengki and Putu have the kind of intuition you see very rarely, and it plays out on the water beautifully. From the first wave they were able to immediately recognize the mental obstacles that were keeping me from having the perfect ride. The technical and mental confidence that came with each wave under their instructions washed that away within the week and I came out a calmer, more confident surfer. To be fair, three massages and two hours of yoga certainly didn’t hurt!
Suzanne was a fantastic host, leading us from sunset drinks to truly inspired restaurants, all off the beaten “Bali Bible” track. The holiday catered as easily for Mum as it did for Amy (24) and me (22), and combined the best ingredients for a great time away – equal parts action and relaxation. SHE had our itineraries at hand from day one, with a quick debrief every night that allowed us to start the day with no worries but to focus on the task at hand. Sunrise yoga, sunset surf and the hours in between to ourselves with nothing to plan, by the third day I felt like I’d been away for a week. In fact, we were enjoying ourselves so much that after just two nights of rave Skype reviews from the three of us, our Dad and two brothers started looking at flights to try and piggyback onto the end of our trip!
I couldn’t recommend SHE surfs highly enough, as an avid traveller, and now keen surfer. SHE provided the perfect mid-year getaway, and Suzanne’s company made it all the better, joining our trio as though she’d known us for years. It’s been a month since we left, and I’m already enlisting my girlfriends for round two!"
SHE thinks SHE has the best job in the world; SHE spends time doing what SHE loves with women of all ages who inspire us with their willingness to embrace the challenges that come with surfing. SHE couldn't be more grateful to share these experiences. So glad you had the best holiday Hannah!
If you're thinking about learning to surf, improving your surfing, or just taking time out to have a different type of holiday, join us in Bali this year. SHE knows it will change your life.
