Camp hosted at Brazil's famous Praia do Rosa
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 14 January, 2015 - A company called Brazil Ecojourneys has created a getaway for the LGBT community - a surfing camp just for lesbians and their female friends. The surfing world by many accounts is not the most LGBT-friendly in the world, so it makes a ton of sense that someone would create a surfing camp like this.
From the camp's creator: "I surf all the time, and I'm usually the only lesbian out there, surrounded by heterosexual men. I see how there really aren't many opportunities for gay women to get together and learn to surf in a friendly environment," said Marta Dalla Chiesa, owner of Brazil Ecojourneys. "Here's the chance for a group of women of all sizes, ages, skill levels and nationalities to come together to learn a beautiful sport and enjoy an amazing vacation together."
