  • Christian - Germany Surf in South Africa - june 2012

    I have worked for 8 weeks in the surf program and can’t believe that the time is over now. On one side the time runs so fast, but on the other side I have done so many things here, that it feels I have been here for a year. I have seen another world in the townships that I have never seen before, and I will go back to Germany with a lot of new experiences. I’m glad that almost all of them are positive and it was hard to say goodbye to my surf group. They became friends in the last weeks. I have met so many nice people at the hostel also. They made this stay an awesome trip.
