About us

About SurfaWhile

We are SurfaWhile: a young, sporty, ambitious and very enthusiastic team with a shared passion: travel. In 2015 Hans van Mourik and Olmo van Beurden started offering the best surf-related trips and because of the experiences of both men the link to language trips was quickly made. Every day the men of SurfaWhile are with great enthusiasm ready to tell everyone about this unique combination. Given their own experiences, both in terms of surfing and learning a language, the assistance to potential students becomes a lot more relevant and fun. Our travels have brought us to every corner of the world, allowing us to draw on a generous portion of personal experience. We are therefore happy to answer all your questions. If you have a question, feel free to ask it at the bottom of the relevant page or send us an e-mail.

I am a Journalist, Photographer & Musician from North London. I arrived at SurfaWhile after finishing my Masters in Ancient History at the University of Amsterdam. I aim to find and write about the hidden gems of the surfing world to inspire your next surf holiday as well as interviewing exiting talents in our international surf community.

Via mijn studie Tourism Management ben ik terecht gekomen bij SurfaWhile. Waar ik elke dag meer leer over het surfen, en het verkopen van surfreizen. Door het schrijven van artikelen over surfvakanties, ervaringen en prachtige surfbestemmingen zorg ik er voor dat jij goed voorbereid op surfvakantie gaat!
