SURFER’S CODE

Lava Girl Surf follows the principles and teachings of Shaun Tomson’s Surfer’s Code. Born of the collective wisdom of the surf community, the Code is a powerful source of inspiration in the face of extraordinary challenges of every day life.

  • I will never turn my back on the ocean: Passion
  • I will paddle around the impact zone: No short cuts
  • I will take the drop with commitment: Courage, focus and determination
  • I will never fight a rip tide: The danger of pride and egotism
  • I will always paddle back out: Perseverance in the face of challenges
  • I will watch out for other surfers after a big set: Responsibility
  • I will know that there will always be another wave: Optimism
  • I will ride and not paddle into shore: Self-esteem
  • I will pass on my stoke to a non-surfer: Sharing knowledge and giving back
  • I will catch a wave every day, even in my mind: Imagination
  • I will realize that all surfers are joined by one ocean: Empathy
  • I will honor the sport of kings: Honor and integrity
