Empowering Women To Surf Their Best
With more and more Women in the water, there has never been a better time to be a female in surfing. The Surf Box is a platform that encourages, supports and fosters the growth of Women surfers from all around the world.
Founded in 2016, The Surf Box aims to assist Women to reach their full potential in the water, whether that is simply becoming more confident in the ocean, or learning how to do performance manoeuvres.
All of the content on this site is created in a way that places females at the forefront of the sport. The Surf Box creates and maintains a community of Women who want to dive head first into their passion of surfing, to ask questions, and to improve their skills.
Meet The Founder Ruby Meade
Hey I'm Ruby, founder and content creator for The Surf Box. I'm a 25 year old, surfing and fitness enthusiast, who grew up in the quaint surf town of Raglan, New Zealand. I spend most of my time here, but travel often to find the next best wave and adventure.
I have worked as a surf coach for the past 7 years, spending time pursuing this cause all over the world, where I spent significant time in Central America working solely with Women wanting to take their surfing to the next level.
My passion for surfing, the human body and people led me to complete my bachelor's degrees in both sport, movement and human performance and in teaching pedagogy.
I started The Surf Box not just as a way to transfer my skills and experience, but also as a way to build up and connect with a community of like-minded people. Life for me is about connection, and I simply cannot think of a better way to connect than through the sport, my passion, of surfing.
My coaching philosophy is simple. Firstly, having fun should be the number one priority, for everyone. Secondly, learning skills correctly from the start and creating strong foundations is the key to longer-term surf success.
And lastly, but not least, all coaching should be carried out in a way that develops self-belief, empowerment, and enthusiasm in the surfer, so they can continue to progress through the rest of their surfing journey, irrespective of whether a coach is there or not.
