to share with others. Yoga is also included. Besides learning how to surf, it is the goal of
Wavesisters to offer you a platform to network among each other and thus
to let the female surfer community grow.
Learning to surf among women
Experience has shown that women and girls are in a homogeneous - i.e. in a purely
female group - learn surfing faster and better than in a mixed group,
where boys ride the first waves much faster thanks to their strength.
The physical and mental conditions of the course participants are more similar and it is easier,
to strengthen each other. The self-imposed pressure to perform
is therefore considerably lower and the learning success and thus the fun of surfing even greater.
I had the idea to learn how to surf when I was about 16 years old. I had seen the surfers in the "Eisbach" in Munich, my home town. But I didn't know any surfers, didn't know where to turn to in order to learn it and was too shy to ask anybody. Therefore I first started climbing.
It took 10 years before I drove to the French Atlantic coast and tried to teach myself how to surf - without much success. Anyway, I tried it again and again because for me the ocean and waves meant fun. But only a surf course another three years later brought progress and my first real surf success.
Therefore I know: Every beginning is difficult but it could have been made easier. I have been surfing and doing yoga since 97' and have travelled and surfed across Europe as well as on the American continent and Asia. Since 2003, I've lived in Lanzarote spending a lot of summer time in France. Since 2005 I've been working as a surf instructor. I founded WaveSisters in the autumn of 2007.
Hi! I’m Amber and I’ve been coaching for 4 years now. I started my life’s journey in Cape Town South Africa - where I discovered my love of surf coaching but also my passion for helping to inspire people (women in particular) through moving their body. Whether it’s rock climbing (also a passion of mine), surfing or yoga, I believe physical movement can work magic for ones own self development - whether it be improving mental health, building self esteem or learning to have more fun.In December 2017 I sold everything and packed up my life in Cape Town, bought a one way ticket to Europe and started a new journey in the persuit of travel and adventure. I hope to inspire your love for travel and adventure through learning or improving your surfing here in Portugal. Come get stoked on life and surfing with me!
Hola, I am Oli 🙂 After traveling around the world and being part of different projects, learning about yoga, Qigong and energy healing, I landed at Wavesisters in Lanzarote and will be your Camp manager for Portugal soon. I love being in the water and have always been attracted by surfing. The first time I stood on a board, I knew I wanted to do it again 🙂 Surf and yoga are such a perfect combination. Here is the perfect opportunity to do both in a peaceful and beautiful environment. So girls, looking forward to practicing yoga and being in the water with you ! I'll also be hanging out around a lot and if you have any questions, just ask 🙂 See you soon
When surfing or surfing you experience pure joy! It is a demanding sport, but combines with a relaxed lifestyle. Thus the fun does not come too briefly!...
Hello, my name is Saskya. I started surfing 5 years ago in Portugal and directly fell in love! To keep surfing every day and living a life by the ocean I recently became a surf instructor which now brought me to Lanzarote and the Wavesisters where I teach you surfing, enjoying a warm winter and beautiful waves on this special island. I'm looking forward to share my passion and some waves with you, see you soon!
Hey I'm Suse! I did travel around the world quit a lot, but November 2015 I decided to move from Cologne to Lanzarote. Because arrived here, I straight felt in love with the mountain range "El Risco", the huge natural beach of Famara and tiny, remote and sandy village of Famara. The atmosphere is fascinating, life very connected to ocean, sand, wind and nature. At the wavesisters camp I 'm your camp manager. I'm not a real surfer yet, but at my old 55 years of age I will start surfing, having this great opportunity now! 🙂
I don't really remember how I got addicted to surfing. I have always loved the beach, the ocean and travelling. Then, one day around 2011, I joined my first surf course. Surfing is part of my life ever since. I use every holiday - long or short - for a trip to enjoy the waves. Because of my constant "search for waves" I went to quite a few corners of Europe and my travel wish list is still long.
I am the helper at WaveSisters and pick you up from the airport, take care of the car and make sure that you have a cosy bed, sand free wetsuits and wax on your surfboards.
