CHICKS ON WAVES

Surf Girl - - Indian Summer Travel Guide - More at www.chick­son­waves.com www.onelifelodge.com info@chick­son­waves.com

Or­gan­ised by surfer girls for girls, here small groups and per­sonal coach­ing make for max­i­mum progress in the wa­ter. Plus there are daily rooftop yoga ses­sions, stun­ning ocean views and healthy meals for all-round well­be­ing. Stay in the newly ren­o­vated bou­tique villa, ‘One Life Lodge’, which boasts six lux­ury en-suite rooms, breath­tak­ing sea views and a large pool to re­lax by. We spoke to founder and owner Ka­trien Kegels to find out more…

Is this for any surfer level?

All surfers of any age and level can join the re­treat. We surf mainly beach breaks with the begin­ners whilst the more ex­pe­ri­enced surfers en­joy the point/reef breaks.

Apart from surf­ing, what other ac­tiv­i­ties can guests en­joy?

There’s daily yoga ses­sions on our roof-top ter­race, you can ex­plore all the beaches, book a SUP tour, hit the re­ally nice hik­ing track out the front of the house, or we have re­ally good moun­tain bikes to ex­plore the area. Plus La­gos is a re­ally beau­ti­ful city and only 15 min­utes away.

What’s the best thing about One Life Lodge?

That you don’t need to think about any­thing… ev­ery­thing is ar­ranged for you which means you can to­tally re­lax. The lodge is an amaz­ing bou­tique villa with a beau­ti­ful pool, ocean view, re­lax­ing vibe and a sparkling team of surfer girls. The food is also de­li­cious and healthy – from smooth­ies, freshly baked warm bread, chia pud­dings and ba­nana bread to healthy fill­ing sal­ads on the beach and the Tues­day BBQ.

What kind of girls do you nor­mally have on your re­treats?

We have girls from all over the world, from US, Aus­tralia and Europe. Th­ese tend to be super happy girls who are open-minded and want to learn some­thing new (the surf­ing), love to be ac­tive but also en­joy time to re­lax as well. We get lots of solo trav­ellers.
