Genevievé - 'The Wavebreaker'

Growing up in South Africa, a country with such beautiful nature, sun, sea and sand is in Genevievé’s blood. She used to spend every school holiday sunbathing on a different beach, going to the lake for water sports or jumping off cliffs into crystal clear waters. If it took place in the outdoors – she was there!

When picking holiday destinations, a good beach bargain with sundowners is a must. Listening to the waves hugging the beach from morning to night while sipping cocktails is a favourite pastime. On off days she can be found in or next to the water or discovering new outdoor activities – these freckles don’t happen by themselves!

Genevievé is always up to date with the latest and best beach days, water sports and camping spots.
