Last summer we had our first guests from outside Europe, Marianka was one of them from the USA and certainly not the last as the upcoming Zanzibar camp will have 7 different nationalities, USA is treathing us well, mainly thanks to this first explorer :) We asked her why Girlzacive? :
” Nowadays there are so many wonderful places to kite, and even more camps and groups out there that are willing to show you those places. So how on earth is it possible to make a choice? When I started to look for a coaching camp I had heard about Girlzactive from several people and had heard great things, so I started searching for their destinations. From Egypt to Brazil, to Tanzania, to Portugal. Esponende Portugal happened to be during a time I had off. As soon as I signed up I had great and personal communication with Maroean, the welcome feeling really ads and makes them so different from all the big ‘factory’ agencies.
I arrived a day after most of the girls and was worried I missed out, but when I arrived, I met this crazy, wonderful, hilarious group of women! Why was I so worried that it was “just a girls camp”? Here we’re a group of girls and women from all different ages but with the same mindset as me! Traveling, seeing new places, kiteboarding and being active. I spend a week with these crazy wonderful girls, spend long days on the water from paddleboarding early in the morning to long windy afternoons under my kite. I learned awesome new tricks on a kiteboard through the coaching of Maroean while she was pushing me to my limits and had the week of my life!
Girlzactive makes it easier for girls to travel alone and meet up as you will automatically meet a group of your newest friends no matter what language you speak! For sure I will be back and hope to see you as well.”
