Celebrating Mermaid March means our Betty of the Month had to be a total merboss. Our very first OG Surf Team Rider, Mary Osborne is exactly that. A leader in Women’s pro surf with a career spanning over two decades, passionate ocean steward, and local role model teaching and inspiring girls and women to feel their power and stoke through surfing– we absolutely LOVE this Betty!
We we’re so pumped to catch up and see where Betty life is taking her, this is what she shared…
“My surf camps and surfari escapes have been a big success over the last five years. This year [in 2020], I’m changing my Summer surf programs to the Mary Osborne Surf Academy” and [am] ready to make my camps more intimate and truly successful for each surfer. My goal is … to ensure each surfer falls in love with the sport and will truly succeed. This means a much more hands on personal experience for each student, smaller groups, safer surfing conditions and truly passionate instructors.”
“I’ve been on the road non stop from last August 2019 to Feb 2020… I was able to go work on a Melissa McCarthy film in Atlanta doing stunt work for three months. It was incredible to be a part of a movie production and learn how stunt work operates. Following the film, I hosted a retreat in El Salvador, one in Costa Rica and Mexico. As of March I will be home in Ventura hosting groups visiting Ventura County, and most likely staying home till after my summer camps this Fall.”
