We have an all women coaching team. Our women surf instructors are experienced, mature NW surfers whose combined surfing travel experiences span the World from the Pacific NW, to Indonesia, Europe, Mexico, Costa Rica, Hawaii, and Canada. They have over 100 years combined of surfing wisdom and experience.
All surf instructors are currently certified with CPR and First Aid. All have passed a lifeguard test, at some point in their surf careers. All instructors teach with Gath surf helmets and we provide them for all students.
In case of an emergency, a rescue surfboard and first aid kit are provided at every camp, lesson and event. We pride ourselves in having “raised the bar” in both qualified surf instruction and the safe way we conduct it. We love sharing our passion for life, nature and the beautiful Pacific NW Coast with our students. Come join us for the fun this summer!
Our company’s mission is to bring to the North Coast of Oregon and the Pacific Northwest, an opportunity for women, men, teens, and kids, of all ages to learn how to surf in a supportive, progressive, learning environment. Our goal is to empower each participant with the basic/intermediate skills and confidence to pursue surfing and its' healthful lifestyle. Our larger goal is to create a women's surfing community; networked and supported by individuals, private contractors, local/regional business partnerships and ocean conservation liaisons.
1. How long has the business been operating and how did it start?
M15901 started in 2005. With an epiphany after teaching two days of surfing lessons to women and girls of all ages, I stepped onto my new path and passion to teach surfing to women and create a NW community of women surfers, where none had existed before. This June, we’re celebrating our 16th season on the North Coast of Oregon with our unique program. We started that first summer with three Day Camps and a few lessons. Each year, with popular demand, we have expanded offering more surfing experiences to women of all ages, as well as men, teens and kids down to age 6.
2. What is your company's mission?
M15901 mission is to bring to the North Coast of Oregon unique surfing, standup paddling, NEW bodyboarding and Mindfulness yoga opportunities for women, men, couples, teens and kids of all ages.

Our qualified team of women instructors will provide knowledge for the students in water safety, basic through intermediate skills, and hands-on surfing, standup paddling and bodyboarding experiences with personalized coaching. Our goal is to empower each participant with the basic/intermediate skills and confidence to pursue surfing, standup paddling, and bodyboarding along with their healthful lifestyles. Our larger goal is to create a M15901 women's surfing community; networked and supported by individuals, private contractors, local/regional business partnerships and ocean conservation liaisons.

Our Girlfriend Getaway Surf Weekenders are by far our most popular experiences. We offer them once a month, throughout the months of June, July, August and September. Next would be our Day Surf Camps, a great way to sample surfing.

I have been told so many times by our clients that the experience we provided was transformative for them, that we use that as our motto; connection, empowerment and transformation awaits you! Surfing and its healthful lifestyle practices support and nourish a full and present moment life.
