Maybe you have already heard from Wake Up Stoked which is a great kitesurf blog founded by Miriam Tymiec, a travel addicted kitegirl who works as a graphic designer all over the world (depending where her wind chasing journeys lead her …). If you want to know more about Miriam’s lifestyle as a digital nomad and in particular about her new project together with her brother – the Wake Up Stoked camps – then you should definitely read on …
Lately I talked to Maroean Mones who is the founder and owner of Girlzactive, a company who organizes women’s only kiteboarding camps and boardsport events all over the world. While working in the corporate banking/financial world after university she took her first kitesurf lession in 2013. Finally she asked herself “Is this all?” and officialy started Girlzactive in November 2014. She did the kite instructor license, teaches and organizes the Girlzactive trips together with her team. Currently she lives all over the world while her house is in Utrecht/Netherlands.
It was really amazing to hear the thoughts of a women who just DID it – she decided to take a risk and followed her heart – and now lives the surfing lifestyle everyday. Which doesn’t mean that this isn’t also a lot of work, it’s even the opposite!
