Welcome to Olya Raskina and Sveta Martynova's Windsurf Beauties camps. The upcoming camps are 16-30th of March in Cape Town, SA; 1-10th of May in Mauritius; 15-29 June at Five Square windsurf school in Dahab, Egypt.

We would like to introduce windsurfing to as many girls as possible and share our passion with them. We believe that windsurfing is the best sport for a woman, because it is fun, active, physical and bound with nature. It combines 2 basic elements: wind and water, which give you joy and freedom. Our goal is to help you learn, improve and advance in windsurfing.

Next Windsurf Beauties camps: 2-16.10, 20.11-4.12. JP NP Young Gun camp: 30.10-6.11 in Dahab, Egypt

Dear friends,
after a very successful mixed (girls and guys) summer camp that we've just had in Dahab at Five Square windsurf center, we are inviting you to join our Windsurf Beauties and Beasts camp ;))) from 2nd until 16th of October at the same spot. It was great fun to teach our girls together with the guys as they were so helpful and motivated that everything just went on perfectly well. We had a very windy week and lots of sailing, teaching planning in foot straps, jybes, fast tacks, water starts and other tricks.
At the end of the week we had our famous ROXY Fun race where both guys and girls were so competitive that at the start line we had quite a big mess of equipment. The "pro" group had to sail to the Lagoon, gybe around a buoy and come planning back to the center. The "beginner" group had their buoy next to the beach and all the guests from our center were supporting them screaming so loud, you could hear from Speedy.
Now we are getting ready for our next camp where we'll have a special daily program consisting of a warming-up sesh, 4h windsurfing, lunch, 2h more sailing, yoga, dinner, video analysis and parties.
We've got a few special events set up for the upcoming camp, which is a ROXY/QUIKSILVER Fun Race, a free diving lessons to all the participants (!!!!!!!) from a professional free dive master and instructor Julia and much more.
Yoga will be held by our favorite instructor Svetlana who's been practicing yoga for many many years and developed a special program that will suit every girl and guy who's windsurfing.
Our price for 1 week of the camp is 350 euros, 2 weeks - 680 euros. The rental of the equipment has to be payed separately and 7 days for beginners will cost 99 euros, intermediates and pros will be a very good discount on the rental. For more info, please write to Olya here: windsurf.beauties@gmail.com.

The next Windsurf Beauties camp will be in Dahab from 11 till 25th of June at Five Square windsurf center

We've just had a very successful, fun and extreme camp for girls and boys in Morocco. A lot of people came to join us, mostly all of them going to the ocean for the first time in their lives. It was a great adventure for every participant as they sailed, surfed and went swimming in great Moroccan waves every day from 1st until 21st of May. This is our group of the first week of the camp.
For the first time guys joined our camp as all of them were very motivated to try and learn wave sailing. Though they tried hard, some girls were even better both at jumping and riding waves, like Sasha Avetisova who went for a very nice jump on her second day of wave sailing ever.
This is Sergey Eroshenko who came all the way from Japan to join our camp and improve his wave riding skills. His cutbacks look much better now, that's for sure. ;)
The girls from intermediate group had a very hard time learning to pass the shore break for the very first time and come back in good 1 - 1,5 meter waves. It was a mission for everyone and they tried, learned and succeded. Sofia Panova (the photo under) is sailing since 1 month, always on the flat water of Dahab, but here in Morocco she overcame her fears and learned how to pass the shorebreak.
This is our group going out surfing on the Secret Spot in Morocco.
We surfed and sailed on many different spots, but the best one was right in front of our apartment in Sidi Kaouki. Thanks to the owner of the windsurf center there, Felix, we had an amazing time, great windsurfing and surfing, the best company and so much fun..hard to describe..)))))
Some stretching before surfing and..here we come))
Felix showed us the best spots for surfing and windsurfing in Morocco. This is one of them called Imsouane.

It was always a pleasure to sail and teach in Sidi Kaouki. Our home spot.))
Amazing sunset over Secret Spot.
Morocco is such a beautiful and amazing country with lots of incredible spots, great people, food and fantastic landscape.

Our camp was as usual full of activitives, such a jogging and stretching in the morning, windsurfing and surfing during the day, yoga in the evening and lot of trips.
This is our intermediate group in Essaoira.
For all the info about upcoming camp in Dahab from 11 to 25th of June, please, contact Olya here: windsurf.beauties@gmail.com. 1 weeks of the camp costs 350 euros, 2 weeks - 680. 7 night in Panda hotel (single, 3 stars) is 322 dollars, 7 nights in Ganet Sinai Hotel (single room,3 stars) is 343 dollars. + you will need to book a flight to Sharm el Sheikh and book windsurf gear which is due to be payed extra. see you in Dahab, windsurf beauties team.

Windsurf Beauties camp won't happen in March in Dahab

Dear girls,
we have to cancel our windsurf beauties camp in Dahab in March due to your security reasons. So far it has been totally safe and peaceful in Dahab, but the political situation in Egypt is getting worse, things are totally out of control, so we cannot take the risk and make the camp in March. We are hoping that Dahab will stay as safe as it has been and eventually everything will get back to normal here in Egypt. Then we will go back to our beloved Dahab and keep up with the camps here. At the moment we are running windsurf beauties camp with a few participants improving their skills every day. The wind has been amazing, blowing every day.
Today we had a light south wind session with a lot of new freestyle moves to learn. We had a lof of fun, as it was so warm that some girls were sailing in bikinis.
Some girls came here to try windsurfing for the first time and they loved it. Right now we are planning to make the next camp in Marocco where everyone will be able to learn how to sail in waves. It will be a great time in the ocean.
A very famous Ukranian windsurfer Sergey Gunko teaches yoga now in our camp. He know so many different ways to make girls relaxed after the windsurf session that they ask for yoga every single day. ;) It's a perfect mix of exercise and relaxation.
Soon we will provide all the information about the camp in Marocco, so stay tuned. All the best!
