Catch the perfect wave!

A woman surfers life - presenting Jaimi Davie
This month I am pleased to feature an amazing young woman that lives her life in the now. The dedication and commitment she makes to catch the perfect wave is inspiring. I am honored and pleased to present Jaimi Davie for two reasons: she inspires me with her enthusiasm and passion for living her dream to the fullest and because I can say she is my daughter.

Jaimi lives near Todos Santos, Baja, Mexico. Her morning ritual is the beach, the ocean and catching the perfect wave. How to create a life around this personal dream is one that is not easy to know unless you are a surfer. She surfs La Pastora surf beach just outside Todos Santos and what Cabo locals refer to as their big wave spot. La Pastora sometimes gets double to triple overhead waves.

What does that mean? Big...really really big!

"Think the wave, feel the wave and do the wave!"

"The first and most important reason I surf, is simple, "FUN". I believe that is the one reason I do anything I love. Surfing has the added factor of fitness, being connected with nature, and my spiritual connection with myself.

I started surfing in the summer of 2001 in a small west coast town on Vancouver Island called “Tofino”. The water was cold, but by the time I caught my first wave I was hooked. That winter I decided that I wanted to be a good surfer. I took surf instruction classes, first aid and life guarding and then bought a bus ticket to Mexico where I lived on the beach for five months learning to surf and offering massage to the other surfers.

It has been 9 years since I caught those first waves. Since then, I have traveled and worked in NewZealand, Australia, Hawaii, Mexico, Europe, all in search of another perfect ride. I have been to so many beautiful surf destinations, and I am always blessed with all the wonderful people I meet along the way.

I am now living in Baja California Sur, in a small town on the west coast called Todos Santos. I am one of a few women surfers that live full time in this community, and we are all very supportive of one another. That’s one of the wonderful things about being a female in this sport, all the girls have a great energy, and if I am not catching a wave then I am just as stoked to see my girlfriends get one. Another reason for living here in Baja is that I work teaching women how to surf. I get the unique task of helping someone catch their first waves. I get excited to know that I have introduced surfing to another female, there is always the perfect time to learn at whatever age.

Girls just wanna have fun!

I have carved out a life that revolves around the ocean. If I’m not surfing, I’m swimming, snorkeling, fishing, sailing, kayaking, or just hanging on the beach." says Jaimi smiling.

Living the dream....
