João Santos

I was born on the outskirts of Ericeira, where I have always lived. The sea has always been part of my daily life. Surf came into my life about 21 years ago, as a joke, with a group of friends. Never did I think I would make this hobby my profession.

I did not set out to follow the competitive world of Surfing, essentially because Surfing for me is natural, free, without obligations or concerns.

After some professional experiences, in 2009, I took the opportunity to take the Coach Course by the Portuguese Surfing Federation. Since then, I have turned my passion into my profession, which I do with the greatest taste and commitment.

To complement the practice of Surfing and to keep in shape, I practice Yoga weekly and run whenever I can.


We were all raised in the Ericeira area, and are knowledgeable about the place. We share one thing in common, the taste for surfing and making surfing our life.


To transmit and teach surfing, instilling the spirit of surfing through respect for others and the lifestyle that Surf gives us, never forgetting the commitment we all have to nature.
