After Australia, Beatrice (Oda Johanne) and Magdalena (Sarah-Quita Offringa) parted ways and each headed to their homes. A week later Beatrice realized she needed to escape the winter in Europe and before Magdalena knew it Beatrice was at her doorstep in Aruba. Just in time for the windy season, and also the unexpected lockdown! Her six week trip turned into 3,5 months. With official contests being cancelled, the dynamic duo put all this extra time to good use and sailed their hearts out. Always trying to out-do each other and with seemingly unlimited energy they were on the water practicing a different discipline every day until dark. Follow Beatrice and Magdalena in Aruba, going for freestyle, slalom, foil, wave and kiting. It was a Lovely Holiday to remember!
“Follow Beatrice and Magdalena on their 5 week road trip up and down the coast of WA. They find awesome conditions for freestyle, wave sailing and through trial and error learn how to survive in the outback.
Especially that Australian wildlife… How fascinating!”
Once again: Guaranteed terrible acting.
But we hope to give you all a laugh during these times! ❤
After a hectic year of traveling and windsurfing, Beatrice (Oda Johanne) and Magdalena (Sarah-Quita Offringa) find themselves back where their windsurfing career started. Brazil!
Hold on as they go for off-roading Brazilian style before busting out their latest freestyle moves in Jericoacoara and Lagoa Grande. And also it seems they’re getting more and more synchronized! Obrigada Brazil for another lovely holiday yet again!
“After Brazil, Beatrice wanted to take her sailing to the next level and traveled to Bonaire to train. Her good friend Magdalena sees how beautiful Bonaire is and how much Beatrice has improved and decides to surprise her in Paradise.
Together they work on their synchro freestyling, improve their slalom sailing and discover the island. For their sightseeing trip, they indulge and rent a Mustang. They discover the iconic pink salt lakes, the impossibly blue sea on the south side and are pleasantly surprised by some hotties on the side of the road… or are they?
Both Magdalena and Beatrice had a blast on Bonaire and are already planning their next Lovely Holiday together!”
Thanks to our sponsors for letting us do what we love =)
Beatrice used to be one of the tourists that would come to Jeri to just enjoy the caipirinha’s and watch the windsurfers sail into the sunset. Until one day she was very curious to find out what the fuss was about this windsurfing and why these windsurfers would spend hours and hours on the water. She gave it a try and loved it! Now she’s trying to convince her friend Magdalena to give it a go as well. Magdalena really loves coffee so it could be hard to get her on the water. This is the story of 2 tourists trying a new sport, and before they know it they fall in love with it. And…. ACTION!
This year again Sarah-Quita Offringa met up with Oda Johanne on her yearly trip to Brasil. It was another amazing two weeks sailing at the lagoon, Jeri and Maceio. The cherry on top were two days of really fun swell in Jeri. Filming for “Lovely Holiday” was probably one of the most fun sessions in Maceio. For an hour we were sailing in our dresses and hats without harnesses trying to synchronize our moves. It was almost impossible because the waves in Maceio don’t come in one line.
So you may have noticed that our synchro shots are not so synchro! We also learned that backslaps after a failed forward are brutal without a harness. Other highlights of the trip were Magdalena (Sarah-Quita’s alter ego on the water) launching into her first double forwards, and Oda pushing to new heights on her pushloops on the big wave days! Brazil delivered once again!
