    Description

    My name is Johanna. I am the owner of the Surf School and a Swimwear brand. I have started my journey 2 years ago in the Colombian Caribbean, reaching the point of visible growth. I am building my house in a rural neighborhood living with people from the area. I was born in Bogota where after finishing my studies I worked and gained experience in a national corporation. After 11 years I have decided to take the knowledge and make my own business with what I know to do best, living the beach life.
    I am a Surfer and a National Bodyboard Champion (2017) which gave me enough experience to make my own functional design of swimwear for women and teaching surf. I became an entrepreneur since I have seen the struggles of women in the sea with their swimsuits. My products are made in Colombia with local labor and materials.
    I am a nature lover, with interest in ocean, surfing.

    Our team will be in the middle of a small rural Colombian community where everyone knows each other, sharing their traditions, culture and cuisine.

We will teach you how to live in harmony with nature in the middle of the jungle.
