Surfing Mums: kids want to go surfing, too

Australia is one the greatest surfing countries. Soccer is the most popular sport in the land of cangurus, but water sports have millions of enthusiasts.

That's why there are several surfing organizations in Australia. One of them is Surfing Mums. Yes, you've read that correctly. Surfing Mums aims to unite mothers all over the world in the passion for the sport.

Although they don't own priority in the line up, these mothers encourage other to build strong relationships on and out of the beach. Also, women tend to share thoughts, tips, ideas and experiences of being mothers.

Surfing Mums was started by Vanessa Thompson, from Byron Bay, in 2008. The network of mums has reached 500 members and has traveled to other countries, such as USA and Ireland.
