About us

We are a surf school only for women and girls and their children.

Experience has shown that women and girls learn to surf faster and better in a homogeneous group than in a mixed group, in which boys, thanks to their strength, already ride the first waves much faster. The physical and mental conditions of the students are more similar and it is easier to strengthen each other. The self-imposed pressure to perform is therefore much lower and the learning success and thus the fun of surfing is even greater.

The children can participate from 6 years in the surf course, or if they are smaller (from approx. 2 years) we hold a care for them ready.

If you arrive as a family or as a couple and you have a man at your side, you can’t stay at the surf camp, but as an “external” you can participate in the surf course. We work together with other surf schools, where the accompanying man can attend a surf course.

Arrival

Arrival days at WaveSisters are Saturday and Sunday. In France only on Saturday. Other days require an agreement and are not always possible. The arrival and departure time is not important for us.
You don't generally need a rental car when you visit us. However, if you want to see more of the surrounding area, you should rent one. Ask us for more information. We are happy to give you tips.
The journey takes place on own direction. In France and Portugal we will pick you up at the bus stop. In Lanzarote we organize that you come to us from the airport. You can ask for more information or tips or come with your booking.

Surfcamps

Your holiday resorts are always tourist friendly and easy to reach, have a good infrastructure, but are not embedded in nature without mass tourism.
In all destinations we have apartments, chalets or houses for you and thus offer you more comfort than a camping site. All accommodations have 2-3 bed rooms; common living room; fully equipped kitchens; garden, balcony or terrace; and a close location to the beach.
All our accommodations are equipped with double or triple rooms. A single occupancy is therefore only possible if we have one course place left and can therefore only be assigned quite spontaneously. There is then a surcharge of 100€ to be paid.
In our surf camps you cater for yourselves. Usually, the WaveSisters buy groceries, cook and sometimes go out to eat together, making for quite a few social hours.
Our number of participants per camp is limited to a maximum of 15 people to ensure optimal learning. Our surf course groups have a maximum of 8 students per teacher.
Bed linen (and towels in Portugal) are available or can be provided in France on request for 10€.
The average age is 30 years (excluding children).
In the village there are several supermarkets and shops. An ATM is not too far away. Except on Lanzarote, where you have to drive 10 minutes to the ATM.
We have internet at camp or around the corner in town. So it is no problem to stay in touch with the world.

Course offering

Depending on the structure of the participants and the nationality of the team, classes are held in English or German.
The Surfari is intended for all advanced surfers who prefer to surf on their own and no longer want lessons, but still want to be in the company of other surfers. Of course you can go to the beach with the course group, but you have no more lessons.
We offer weekly courses with 20 hours theory and practice, including video correction. Surf equipment is always included in the price and is available for free use outside of the course hours. Our course times always depend on the surf conditions, tides and weather. Depending on the surfing conditions, tides and weather, other beaches will be served so that you are at your best at the best time. This makes us unique in this service and the learning conditions improve considerably! This is only possible with our small group size. Yoga takes place 3 times a week a 1,5std and depends on the surf course times.
We also take surf students who do not live with us in the camp into our surf and yoga course. One week costs 250€
On Lanzarote we also offer the option of accommodation and transfers only. There is no yoga or surfing equipment included.
Surf equipment is also available for free use outside the course hours. We have soft- and hardboards for all levels and women - wetsuits in all sizes and necessary thicknesses.
If you have the opportunity to come for two weeks, it makes a big difference to get into surfing and progress and it also makes it easier to relax on holiday if you are there longer. But if you can't, then it's not the end of the world. Better a week than no week.
We give lessons for all levels. Bloody beginners start at "zero" and we build up the surf skills slowly and continuously. For everyone else we'll see what you can do at the beginning of the week, and then we'll individually continue where you're going next or where you want to go.
Our course times always depend on the surf conditions, tides and weather. Depending on the conditions, other beaches will be served, so that you are at your best at the best time. This makes us unique in this service and the learning conditions improve considerably! This is only possible due to our small group size. Accordingly, we do not have a fixed schedule. We make a rough weekly plan at the beginning, but it can change.
Yoga takes place 3 times a week a 1.5 hours and is based on the surf course times. We prefer to do our yoga sessions outdoors. The yoga we offer is adapted to surfing and thus becomes an excellent balance. Whether you have never done yoga before or practice it regularly does not matter.
During the surf lessons we are happy to take care of your little ones. Depending on age, destination, weather, desire and mood, we have different ideas what we can do with the kids and look after them during your surfing time safely and with pleasure.
Everything that gets you moving, makes you feel good, helps you to get fit for surfing! If you like it, go swimming, preferably crawling. Or do something for the triceps, shoulders, general upper body strength. But before that doesn't get you in a good mood and you stop right away, it's better to do some sports that you like and keep doing, even if it doesn't fit perfectly with surfing.
Sun cream in the high factor, headgear, at least two bikinis or swimsuits - so that one is dry, beach backpack - beach bag is rather bad, a few warm/long garments - you never know. Bed linen and a towel for the bathroom are provided. Please bring beach towels. In France the bed linen/towel set costs 10€ or you bring everything with you. If you want to use the internet, bring an internet compatible device with you. The same applies if you want to exchange film or photos.
