Maranga Surf & Travel was founded in 2002 and, in many ways, represents a culmination of the life experiences of Connie and Lando, its founders. Both of them passionate Windsurfers, they have always felt drawn to the water (and adventure sports), operating various Camps on the French Atlantic Coast before opening up their own business. Finally, in 2002, after many years searching, the two found the perfect house in the perfect location: the Surfvilla Seignosse. Quickly, the passion project found its name as well: MARANGA – this term derives from Hawaiian culture and means “to come together”. And that has been our motto to this day, because at the Villa-Chilla everyone is welcome!
Only a short while later Connie and Lando also managed to found a little surf-camp in Morocco’s number one surfing-town, Taghazout. Maranga has been welcoming guests here since the Surfhouse’s very first winter, and it is now bookable all throughout the year. Omar has been our associate and companion since day 1.
