What: 
National Women Learn to Surf Week will feature inland surfing champions/mom & daughter duo Cathy and Morgan Seabert. Along with other world champion women surfers, the duo will be on hand at several of the events to teach women how to surf on the park’s inland surf ride, the Boogie Bahn, as a way to raise the profile of women in this sport and celebrate Women of the Wave.

Background: Schlitterbahn New Braunfels was the site of the invention of inland surfing, and now the ride has expanded to locations – including cruise ships –  around the world. Every week at Schlitterbahn there are surfers giving lessons to aspiring surfers, but most who take lessons are boys and young men.  To attract more women to the sport, Schlitterbahn is once again celebrating National Women Learn to Surf Week  to encourage girls and women to take their turn on the world’s most perfect wave.
