SRF Vacations was always something I dreamed of starting to share my passion of movement, surf, sun, travel and making new connections with people. Before I opened my SURFSET fitness studio in landlocked Calgary, Alberta my husband and I traveled the world together exploring beautiful beaches and cities meeting amazing people and making lifelong friendships. We truly were living freely and fully. It is my intention to show each SRF Vacation guest how to do just that.  I am the co-founder, fitness/mobility instructor and surfer of SRF Vacations and I can’t wait to catch a wave and sweat together.

My favourite place to travel / surf

Honestly, anywhere I can catch a wave with great company. The most memorable place to surf would have to be JBay in South Africa and my most frequently travelled to surf destination (because it’s STUNNING!) is Hanalei Bay, Kauai.

My perfect day while I’m on vacation

Waking up with the sunrise without the need of an alarm clock, go straight to the beach for a run or to catch a few waves. Grab an amazing cup of coffee and delicious breakfast and spend the rest of the day either relaxing on the beach or checking out a nearby waterfall. Take advantage of a sunset surf session one last time and cap off the day with a coconut porter beer or glass of wine.

My Most memorable experience while leading a retreat

I’d have to say the best memories happened all in one day. We were leading a retreat in Mexico and we were doing a super fun, super sweaty circuit class and Whitney Houston “I wanna dance with somebody” started blasting on the speakers… the whole room stopped and started dancing and singing! That same day, I rode about 5-6 party waves with new surfers who’d never got up before! BEST DAY EVER!


What gets me stoked?

Can you guess? Other than spending quality time with my people, surfing, fitness and travelling, honestly just helping unlock people’s potential. Whether I am back home in my studio or leading a retreat, any chance I can help people find their true strength, I consider my life FULL!

The Wildest thing I’ve ever done

Too many to share and too small of a space to write hahah! Probably whale shark diving in Mozambique, Africa. Keep in mind I was actually terrified of fish in lakes before I decided to dive with these 15 meter friendly giants, but it was well worth it! Not only did it help me get over my fear the experience was incredibly rewarding.

Come on vacation with Mal!
