That’s right ladies, surf’s up! It’s time to rock those waves while shaping that body and enjoy a free night in paradise while doing so (see Skinny Mom special promo code below). This location isn't your average wave-riding experience, this one takes you back to the birthplace of surfing, where the water’s warm, the waves are perfect and the sun is always shining. It’s time to take a once-in-a-lifetime fitness vacation to SwellWomen, a surf and yoga retreat located in beautiful Maui, Hawaii.
SwellWomen encourages all of their guests to 'follow their bliss,' whether that bliss comes through surfing, yoga or just being in the tropical environment of Maui. They offer both SwellWomen and SwellCo-ed Retreats.

So what makes SwellWomen so ‘swell’?
The SwellWomen Experience: This SwellWomen Experience is for women of all ages and skill levels who are looking to learn, or seek out new thrill adventures while meeting a whole new group of friends! Guests stay at The Sheraton Maui Resort and Spa, and get surf instruction from Goofy Foot, the most popular surf school in Maui. In addition to gaining surfing experience, guests have the pleasure of enjoying everything a Hawaiian vacation has to offer, such as lounging on the white sand beaches or snorkeling in the ocean!
Yoga and Wellness: SwellWomen guests get to experience yoga classes taught by expert instructors geared to all levels of ability. Not to mention, these yoga classes come with a view of the Pacific and neighboring islands. It’s simply breathtaking. In addition, guests will also receive a massage to relax and rejuvenate as well as other spa services to soothe the mind, body and spirit.
Swell Difference: Follow the SwellWomen philosophy of, “Live Bliss. Live Life. Live Aloha.” The Swell Difference is an awesome blend of all the activities offered at SwellWomen with a focus on wellness including; spa treatments, yoga classes, healthy meals and snacks, luxurious accommodations and of course, surfing.
SUP: SwellWomen is one of the few Women’s surf vacations around the world that offer stand-up paddle boarding to their guests! This water activity is a great core workout and is used as a cross trainer for surfing. In addition, SUPing, like surfing, both originated in Hawaii so why not learn these sports in the exact location that they were birthed.
SwellCo-ed: The Co-ed vacation is meant for both men and women to enjoy. Again, it is geared toward all levels of expertise, and is perfect for couples or groups of friends!
