Lee said there were a mix of reasons why people were interested in going on holiday to countries like North Korea. "Some people will come because it's the one place their friends have not been to," she told CNBC over email.
"Others genuinely want to learn more about a country that is so mysterious to the world," Lee added.
"Whatever the reason, our clients are usually worldly, open-minded and adventurous travellers looking for more than an average vacation."
Zanella said that, currently, the surfing community in the DPRK was "close to zero. I heard there's one boy, named Kim, who received a board and lesson from some passing surfers." During the camp, locals will come and take part in seminars and surfing lessons, he added.
Lee's company already offers a range of tours and itineraries to North Korea, giving tourists the opportunity to do everything from watch the DPRK national soccer team in action to running the Pyongyang marathon.
The country is not known for its openness, with Human Rights Watch saying that North Korea "remains among the most harshly repressive countries in the world."
Lee said her company has to liaise with the government before trips are finalised. "When setting up a new tourism program, we need to go through an approval process with the DPRK government," she said.
"When we propose a new itinerary, we advocate for it and show its value. For instance, we argued for the opening of the Pyongyang marathon to foreign amateur runners," she added.
And while some plans were met with resistance, Lee said "In the case of surf, we got support immediately. The Koreans are as excited about this as we are."
Many people will be skeptical about a tour such as this, but Zanella has high hopes. "Surfing is a great vehicle for achieving cultural exchange in a fun and healthy way," he said.
"It creates a neutral ground on which people can stand, no matter where they are from, to face a vast and beautiful ocean together."
