Malama Surf Experience is a project that offers empowering experiences for women through many activities in which surfing first and then yoga are the central axis to inspire all the participants. For this summer they have 3 experiences that begin this June.
MIMI, MOMMY, SURFER AND WOMAN WITH THE SOUL OF A WAVE
The Woman with the Soul of Wave in charge of this project is Mimi, mom, surfer, IT consultant – Program Manager and citizen of the world. Born in Seville, she has lived 13 years between England and the United States. Her greatest inspiration is her 9-year-old son with whom she surfs, snowboards, skates and a thousand other things. Mimi is the creator of MALAMA Surf Experience, her personal project thought of female empowerment through surfing, yoga, personal knowledge, ecology and many other activities aimed at the relationship of women with themselves, with the tribe of women and with nature.
CREATING A SURFING COMMUNITY WITH WOMEN AT THE CENTER
Malama’s experiences began being only for women , Mimi felt that there was a need for experiences for women, that is why Malama surfing has women as its center, but as Mimi says “I am a mother and I felt the need to be able to do these experiences with my son, that’s why we have experiences of mom + boys or girls, mom + complete family or woman + man , because you may want to live this experience with your partner, friend, brother, etc.”
Something that adds value is that the experience creates a community and usually ends up sharing a phone number, contact, offering help and that is, Mimi tells us: «It is something very nice because we realize that a community of women is being created , after the experience we call each other, we help and support each other. Even some of our collaborators have come out of an experience that has served to get to know us» .
In addition to physical activity, they later have moments of internalization and sharing of emotion and feeling.
MALAMA IS A SURFER WHO TAKES CARE OF PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT
«MALAMA is a Hawaiian goddess who has to do with the ocean, with the environment, she is a goddess who was a good surfer and besides surfing she was a person with values and a great sense of family care.» For this reason there is no better name for this project that exudes love and sisterhood towards women, which carries the intrinsic values and surfing tradition in her DNA. Because we are all surfers, it doesn’t matter where you come from, when you get into the water you connect and that does you good, that heals, that gives you power. As Mimi says that a few years ago she did a surf camp for women in Brazil«A woman can, can challenge herself, can heal, be calm, I want women to know that they can know that they can do what they want and these are the values of Malama, Empowerment, perseverance and resilience and that is why I wanted to create Malama for apply all this with surfing»
In short, if you go to a Malama experience, you will be able to surf, do yoga, eat well and healthy, connect with other women who love the sea, who want to meet other women, who respect other colleagues who can be mothers, housewives, Entrepreneurs, managers, any woman who wants to experiment, sea, calm, tribe and family will have a good time in a Malama moment.
