"Osborne has done a great job of presenting the basics--everything
from how to exercise to what to take to the beach. The book won't
replace getting in the water and good instruction, but it does
offer advice on overcoming fear or hesitation and is reassuring on
one important point: all surfers begin as kooks. In fact, even
seasoned surfers sometimes goof up and look like kooks again.
They've learned to laugh it off and paddle back out. Osborne shows
how you can do the same."-- Andrea Gabbard, Author, Girl in the
Curl, A Century of Women in Surfing
"SISTER SURFER does a great job of both explaining how to surf and breaking down the barriers that prevent women from experiencing the sport. A great read that will surely empower and motivate surfers of every level and ability."
-- Raul Guisado, author of The Art of Surfing
"Sister Surfer is spot on with EXCELLENT advice for women who want to learn to surf. Girls, read this book before you take the plunge. You'll be glad you did. Now GO SURFING!"--James MacLaren, author of Learn to Surf
"Mary Osborne has the knowledge that can only be acquired by those who were raised in the ocean. We grew up surfing the same beaches and she is always one of the best surfers in the line up. Anyone looking for advice about the ocean and surfing can definitely find it here."-- Dan Malloy, pro surfer
"Mary Osborne is in love with surfing, and I am in love with Mary Osborne. She's a fine surfer, a great instructor and a capable water person."--Dorian Paskowitz, author of Surfing and Health and founder of the original surf camp
