Talea Hywege – Germany

My name is Talea. I’m from Germany and I spent 7 weeks with Surfpop as a volunteer.  To be honest, it was one of the best decisions I made to fly all the way to Cape Town and join the Surfpop Family. In those 7 weeks I met the nicest people and made memories I’ll never forget. To have the opportunity to work with the children was a blessing, because they are full of joy and good vibes. Even if you have a tough day, as soon as you see them you have a smile on your face and all the bad energy is gone. And it’s not just about teaching them, they also teach you about life. Surfpop has the perfect mixture of spending time with the children in the water and in the classroom, as well as exploring the city and improving your own surf skills. I woke up every morning with a big smile on my face, because the next day full of adventure had started. Thank you Céline & Bongi (Daniel, founder of Surfpop) for making these 7 weeks one of the best times I have had.
