Surfcamp

This isn’t just another surf camp. Chicks On Waves is more… We will welcome you to our  world and make you feel at home. You will meet open-minded souls sharing the passion for the ocean. Soak up the sun and salty air and relax . We will make sure you will love every minute of it!  All women over 18 years looking for a healthy and sportive fun week can join! We run the weeks on 2 locations, the lodge and the villa. Read on and decide which suits you best.

Lodge

At the end of an off-road track, just a few km’s away from Salema,  you wil find the beautifully located One Life Lodge which over looks the ocean and is only a 10 minute walk from a secluded beach called Praia das Furnas.  The house is self sufficient running on wind and solar energy, it is also unique.  Watch dolphins passing by from the sun loungers on the terrace after a surf, and enjoy the sound of the ocean and nature. For nature lovers only…

Villa

This superb villa is situated in the picturesque fishermen’s village Salema. Enjoy the wide view on to the ocean from one of the terraces and take a dip in the pool to refresh. The house is well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable holiday. The small but lively village has a few really good restaurants and a pretty white sanded beach ideal for a stroll or sunbathing. For those who love a little bit more luxury…

Motivation

Surfing with other women is so much fun. We cheer for each other when we see our friend on a beautiful wave… When I started surfing 13 years ago at the age of 25 I often found I was the only female in the water. By organizing these surf weeks for women it was (and still is) my mission to get more women surfing and get women surfing together. Women of all ages can learn to surf and we can learn from each other. We are looking forward to share the stoke with you!
