Women all over the world are getting braver in the water. With popular female surfers such as Kelia Moniz, Alana Blanchard, Bethany Hamilton, and Alessa Quizon taking the lead, girls are getting more inspired.

Surfing is not just a great way to stay active, it is also an effective way to get rid of stress. Whether it makes people lather up their sunscreen on a tropical island or put on their wetsuit to conquer waves in the winter, the experience will truly be awesome.

Check out these surf schools that provide a safe and fun space for women who want to ride waves.

Siargao, Philippines

For people planning a getaway in a charming surf spot, Siargao is the place to be. Home to world-class surf break, Cloud 9, this mecca for surfers does not only offer its visitors perfect wave conditions, but also a great selection of food and things to do when not on the water.

Elaine Abonal, founder of Surfista Travels, women who surf in the tropical paradise of Siargao receive a lot of encouragement and cheers in the lineup. She added that in her home, women who surf don't just exist, they dominate.

Phillip Island, Australia

Phillip Island lies just off Australia's southern coast and is home to Girls on Board. This school, run by Jess Laing, provides surfing lessons for all people across all levels. So whether enrollees want to learn how to master the art of wave riding or just want to try out surfing for the first time, they are welcomed with open arms.

Laing used to be a competitive surfer. After being diagnosed with chronic fatigue at the age of 12, surfing became her therapy. She added that she initially started the surf school to provide enough support for girls to learn the sport.

Bali, Indonesia

People who would love to experience a surf and yoga holiday would adore Mind Body Soul Surf. The surf school, located in one of the best vacation spots in the world, has week-long packages which include yoga and meditation classes, surfing, cultural interactions, and sumptuous food.

Retreats are done in small groups to make it more personalized and intimate.

Lanzarote, Canary Islands

The Spanish archipelago of Canary Islands is not just special because of its rugged volcanic isles and pristine black and white sand beaches. It is also famous for surfing.

Calima Surf has been around for 20 years and is the first surf school in Spain. The surf school teaches surfing through sequential programs that are personalized to their skill level.

Additionally, it also runs an elite camp catered to adventurous women who are up for bigger waves. The camp offers a combination of local food, yoga, and surfing.

Thailand

Thailand is also famous for its world-class beaches and snorkeling sites, and not a lot of people know about surfing on the country's shores.

Run by Thai women along with surfers from Norway, Russia, Australia, and other countries, Phuket Surfer Girls make the beaches in Thailand more vibrant with their surfboards. Although people won't expect the best waves in spots such as Kalim and Kata beaches, these women still rip hard when the swell picks up.
