We just wrapped up our second annual Montauk Sessions in Montauk, NY! An awesome group of ladies came out to be a part of our weekend warrior surf clinic. The northeast dished out a day of rain, a day of rain/sun, then finally on Sunday came SUNSHINE! The waves went from challenging to fun, and despite the crazy weather we all had a blast. When the waves were too choppy and big, we went Stand Up Paddling on Lake Montauk. The lake offered a protected bay out of the wind, where we could get the hang of the the SUP boards and practice paddling techniques. After the paddle we hit up the famous Surf Lodge for some great food and awesome mojitos! On Sunday, the surf was perfect for everyone to really push their surfing skills to the next level. Everyone conquered fears, perfected turtle rolls and got awesome long rides! The sun and perfect little peeler waves lasted thru Monday and Tuesday, so the ladies scored some super ultra mellow days.

Big, Big Thanks to all our sponsors who helped make the Montauk Sessions a success!

Thank you Kristy and Cat for your encouragement as I wrestled with my fear following the weekend's nor'easter.

I have never been out so far past the outside break and the size of the swells, for me, were overwhelming.

Thank you both for your enthusiasm and hard work in pulling the weekend together.
