Not everybody can be a champion lesbian surfer like Keala Kennelly or Cori Schumacher, but it doesn’t mean you can’t try! From May 9 - 16, Brazil Ecojourneys will host South America’s first lesbian surf camp. After successfully hosting a mixed LGBT surf camp, we felt it was time to offer women a week of their own in Santa Catarina, South Brazil.
Santa Catarina is a hidden gem known for its gorgeous beaches and mild climate. Thanks to the half-moon shape of the bay where the camp will take place, Praia de Rosa, there is great surfing no matter the direction of the winds or swells. An area long appreciated by the local LGBT community, in recent years it has become a popular gay and lesbian vacation destination.
While the week was created for lesbian surfers, it is open to all women allies, family and friends. For more information, contact Brazil Ecojourneys.
