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! You stay in a beautiful boutique style surf villa with wide ocean view just 5 minutes walk from the idyllic white sanded beach ‘ Cabanas Velhas’.
Stay in a beautiful luxurious lodge with magnificent ocean views just a few minutes walk form the beach. Enjoy the wide ocean view from one of the terraces and take a dip in the large pool to refresh. Our boutique style surf villa is well equipped and has everything you need for a comfortable holiday, The small but lively village Burgau has a few really good restaurants and a white sandy beach ideal for a stroll or sunbathing .
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 16 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!

We have 300 days a year of sun. Perfect for long, lazy days filled with sun and plenty of good waves to surf on either west or south coast depending on your level.

Back home, and still can’t get the smile of satisfaction off my face 🙂 My ChicksOnWaves yoga and surf week was amazing!! From the first moment we arrived it made me realize that life is good 🙂 AND I finally mastered the art of catching, getting up AND riding a bunch of waves. I’m hooked, surfing is amazing and this trip was just the beginning of a new direction! Thank you to everyone that was involved! See you again next year!
