Surf & Pilates "Amazing Success"


This week sixteen girls from all over Europe took to the waves of Southern Morocco, during the Girls Only Surf & Pilates week. The trip was run by Europe’s number one surf travel company, Errant. Rising each morning to the Saharan sun, the girls took time out before breakfast to work on their Pilates with top London-based Pilates star, Amy Swanson. “The blend between Pilates and surfing is not to be ignored. To thoroughly warm up the spine, using surfing related movement patterns, and learn about body mechanics has proven to be hugely beneficial when taken to the water.”

After a big healthy breakfast, the girls loaded up the vans in search of surf along this bountiful coastline, with world-class waves such as Killer Point, Anka Point and Devils Rock. Returning late in the day to a three course meal, cooked with the freshest ingredients Morocco has to offer.
Ash Howe from Northamptonshire comments “The Pilates sessions were an ideal way to get warmed up before surfing all day. Although Morocco is only a short flight away, the whole trip has felt like a real adventure, because the culture is so different and the surf so good”
On hand to coach the girls was pro-surfer Celine Gerhart from Gul wetsuits. “Celine was a great surf coach, she had a unique way of picking up on the smallest elements to improve my surfing. She really helped me understand where I should be on an unbroken wave and her enthusiasm for the sport is infectious.” commented CJ from Aberdeen.
Joining Celine was top female surf coach Zoey Cotton and professional long boarder Chris Thomson. Both on hand to provide detailed coaching using the latest video techniques.
The holiday was rounded off with a trip to a local Souk, the girls took to the stalls with great gusto, haggling down the prices of all those rugs, clothes and shoes.
