The idea of this project and the development of this school, came from an old dream we have and also from the enormous passion of surf and all it can make us feel.
We could say so much but, for us, surf is not only a unique emotion that each individual experiences each time they are in tune with the natural and fleeting energy of a wave, as well as an unparalleled way of life.
We know that the true meaning of things,must be experienced time and time again in order to tuly feel them.?We are here to share, teach and provide experiences and unique moments to all those who want to join us!
Fitted with all the necessary elements, we bet on a personalized education for a follow-up and development of excellence in the world of Surf.

Shortly before Aljezur, turn left at the intersection towards Vale da Telha. After a short steep climb, turn left again. Follow the road through the Vales village and on the next fork, keep right. Pass the Hotel Vale da Telha and on the large roundabout, take the second exit on the right. Some 200m ahead – and you have arrived!
