We spoke with Krissy Montgomery, also known as “Surf Momma,” the owner of Surf Sister to find out more.
Tell us about your history at Surf Sister.
Krissy Montgomery: Surf Sister was created in 1999 to offer a safe, fun and inclusive environment so women felt more inclined to take up the sport of surfing.
I came into the business in 2002 after a drawing of mine ended up in the hands of the old owner. She loved the drawing; it became the company logo and I was hired on as an instructor. Within a couple of months, I became the manager and eventually purchased the company in 2009.
