Pioneering Women’s Pro Surfer Nancy Emerson Back After Decade ‘Downunder’
Nancy Emerson’s Aloha Surf Clinics have return to the Hawaiian Islands after a highly successful decade ‘Downunder’. With more than 30 years of experience teaching, surfing and competing around the world, Emerson has shown more than 50,000 clients how to ride the rolling surf – from small children to movie stars. Now she is back in Hawaii offering wave-riding aspirants a personalized surfing adventure at a selection of island paradise locations.
Emerson is the longest operating and most experienced female surf instructor in the world, boasts the cleanest safety record in Hawaii, and has proven that learning to surf is so easy that her golden retriever off-sider, Cherokee Moana, had it wired by four months.
With access to myriad surf spots that are tailor-matched to the individual’s ability, Aloha Surf Clinics cruises the islands to escape the crowds on a personalized surfing adventure. Promising more aloha to your wave-riding, Emerson’s clinics offer a unique opportunity to escape the harried, high-turnover surf lessons of Waikiki.
Emerson believes learning to surf is about immersing yourself in a lifestyle rather than riding a quick wave to shore. Team up with this pro surfing pioneer and her surf-shredding dog and you’ll be wave-riding Hawaiian style.
Catering to individuals and small groups with full day clinics, Aloha Surf Clinics covers the complete surfing spectrum: shortboarding, longboarding, bodyboarding, stand up paddle surfing, and elite level coaching for both men and women, young and old.
Three-day clinics start at $275 (plus tax) and you can add as much or as little additional trip planning as you like, including a local’s insight to the best restaurants, spas, shopping, and island touring. One-day clinics are also available.
"Through many years of surfing and teaching, my approach to surfing is that of a complete lifestyle, not just an activity," explains Emerson.
"My instructional technique is founded upon a holistic approach that takes into account the ever-changing nature of the ocean and the equally fluid nature of life and the individual.
"I want your experience with Aloha Surf Clinics to be a positive one that stays with you for life, not just an hour."
Emerson’s enormous contributions to surfing worldwide were officially acknowledged in 1998 when she was inducted into the Na Wahine Hanohano O Ke Kai (Women’s Hall of Fame of the Ocean), in Honolulu, Hawaii. Emerson was ranked among the Association of Surfing Professionals World Top 8 during the years of 1978 & 1979.
