ORDER A BOARD, SURF WITH US
OR STAY HOME

One of the things you need to know is, that surfing is part of the Portuguese life since the 70´s, especially in the middle of the rich families of Cascais. Even today our best surfers (taking one or two exceptions) are all rich kids from privilege families. Witch also means that the surf industry in Portugal is controlled by the same people. It was only in the 90´s that surfing started to get more accessible to everyone else (we stolen our first board in 92) and beaches started to see surfers in the waves from north to south.

In the last 5 years surfing as been growing in popularity not only as a sport but also as the lifestyle it represents. Bringing the ASP 2009 World Tour to Peniche and the biggest wave in the world catch in 2011 by McNamara in Nazaré, putted Portugal in the mainstream media as a destination of waves and surfers. And now BAAMMM, everyone wants to be a surfer, and the surf industry is making millions selling you the lifestyle in packages, products and stuff that is really unnecessary, if you just love the ocean and want to enjoy the waves.

But well, welcome to Portugal. The rest everything is good, beaches are beautiful, waves are good, weahter is good, food is amazing and the locals are friendly (obviously there is always one jackass in the water that thinks he owns the line up).

Send an email or meet us in Lisbon if you want to know more about surfing in Portugal. Enjoy it and take care.

TIAGO

The only true surfer around here, Tiago (or Rob Da Silva for friends) is really the one making us surf better and better everyday. A very nice, mellow and easy going guy, he is what every mom wish for their daughters. With a true love for surfing since he was a kid, he spends most of his time, showing the city and beaches to friends visiting, surfing and shaping. He is also responsible for the dinners and an expert in substances that make you high ;)
RICARDO
RICARDO
This is the man you need around here, to get things done. A lot of things wouldn´t happen if it was not for him. A crook and a car lover (mechanic), he surfs to take the stiffness from his back and the smoke from is lungs. A true friend, is always there when you need. But if you disrespect him, you better say good bye and walk out fast.
LANATA
LANATA
Acting like the right arm of Mr Benga, Lanata, is the one taking care of all the money stuff, and responsible for making everything organized. A psychologist and a human regulator, she is the one helping us not to loose our heads sometimes. A lovely girl, that can turn very fast into a tuff one. We forgive her because she cooks amazing.
JOSÉ
JOSÉ
This big guy is a reference in the surfing scene in Portugal, not because is a surfer, but instead because of his love for the ocean and recycling. Producing fins from recycled materials José is our hero and a good friend. If you have the chance to meet him, make sure you have time to listen to him and you won´t regret.

LUIS MARTINS
A good friend, this guy is the one you need, if you want to put some ink in your skin around here. Spending more than 8 years as a sailor in the historic portuguese sailing ship Sagres, is the real deal. A skater at heart, and a surfer in his free time, its always easy to find where he is when not tattooing.

A foreign affairs expert, makes her the perfect ambassador of the Crooks, no matter where she is. A good nothern surfer and a cool girl, it´s easy to connect with her instantly (the truth is that her crooked smile helps a lot). Always managing to travel to Lisbon everytime she can, it´s in Copenhagen that you will find her easily. So, just let her know, if you are around.
