Ever want to learn how to surf in a safe environment with other lesbians and gay-friendly women? A company called Brazil Ecojourneys has created the getaway for you - a surfing camp just for lesbians and their female friends.

The surfing world by many accounts is not the most LGBT-friendly in the world, so it makes a ton of sense that someone would create a surfing camp like this. And in beautiful Brazil - very cool.

From the camp's creator:

"I surf all the time, and I'm usually the only lesbian out there, surrounded by heterosexual men. I see how there really aren't many opportunities for gay women to get together and learn to surf in a friendly environment," said Marta Dalla Chiesa, owner of Brazil Ecojourneys. "Here's the chance for a group of women of all sizes, ages, skill levels and nationalities to come together to learn a beautiful sport and enjoy an amazing vacation together."

Prices for the week range from $1,299 to $1,799. And just in case you're wondering, no Outsports doesn't get a cut of the camp and no they're not advertisers. We just thought the camp looked like a lot of fun. Check out their Web site for more details.
