    "To put it in a nutshell, the surf camp with Chicks on Waves in Portugal was one of the best holidays I have ever had. It was so much fun to be out there in the ocean surrounded by unspoiled nature, feeling the power of waves underneath my board, and the sun in my face. And even better, I could share this experience with like-minded and open-hearted women who became close friends in just one week. Together, we had a great time no matter where we were or what we did; catching waves, relaxing on the beach, practicing yoga, indulging in delicious food, or chatting for hours under a clear starry sky. (Okay, there were a few mosquitoes there, too, to keep us company, but they dont count.) A big thanks goes to our surfing instructors who never lost their patience when we kept falling off the board, and happily joined us in our excitement when we finally managed to stand on it! And an even bigger thanks to Katrien for organizing the camp and making this holiday possible. You did much more for us than we had expected! We will surely be back!"

    "Back home and still cant get the smile of satisfaction off my face. My Chicks on Waves 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. Im 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!"
