Beginner/Longboard Coach

Hello everyone! my name is Erica, I was born and raised in an Argentine coastal city called Miramar.

I love surfing and contact with the sea. It is the place where I spend most of my time and I would not change it for anything! It brings out the best in me, in the Ocean I am happy. Surfing my longboard is like dancing on the waves! I love working with a group of women, inspiring them to surf, breaking the fear and above all having fun. Creating a positive, warm and friendly environment: a very feminine unique characteristic.

Emily Dawson

Assistant Coach

Hi everyone! My name is Emily, and I am a coach at Chix Surf School specialising in beginner surfing and beginner On Land training coaching.

I was introduced to the ocean as a kid growing up around the beaches, and participating in nippers. I absolutely loved surfing and playing around with my brothers in the ocean, from when I was a toddler to now. It is, and has always been, a place that calms and grounds me, as well as challenges me, but it never fails to put a smile on my face.
