Vacancies

Following below are the vacancies that generally are available every season, but take note that we don’t update the status on the go, so some of them might be occupied already. However we’re always looking to meet new people, so your (open) application is always welcome!

Although most of us are Dutch, our vacancies are in English as, in a way, we’re an international collective and love to have mixed nationalities in our crew. Please be aware however that most vacancies, apart from Surf Instructors, require you to speak Dutch as well!
