Do You Want To Surf?

Categories: All, surfing, women's surfingAuthor:

Betty Belts Surfer Mary Osborne has some good advice for those who want to start surfing.

She is well qualified to as author of the book Surfer Sister.

Here is a blog she wrote as an introduction for those interested in the world of surfing.

It’s truly amazing how surfing changed my own life. Connecting with the vast and mysterious ocean almost every day is something I would not trade for anything now. My Betty B. Shop (and Headquarters) is located just four blocks from the beach and I can even see the ocean from here.

I love it.

Mary Osborne: Unintentional Icon

The lovely, always smiling Mary Osborne was the very first athlete I wanted on my surf team when I got started with Betty Belts in 2003.
I asked her “Mary, I’m starting a surf team, will you be on it?”. And luckily she said gladly and we’ve done a lot together since. The man I love who introduced me to Mary so many years ago, David Pu’u has reactivated his stimulating blog and started writing stories on each of the amazing young female surfers (the Betties) who are ambassadors of the Betty B. Brand.
Here is Mary’s Story:

Betty Belts Surfer Mary Osborne Interviewed in USA Today!

Categories: modeling, pro surfing, surfing, women, women's surfingAuthor:

Congratulations to Mary, for getting this well deserved attention by one of our country’s biggest daily newspapers.
Mary Osborne was the very first surfer to join the Betty Belts Surf Team way back in 2003 and I’ve watched her career explode over the years.


By Sal Ruibal, USA TODAY
