João Diogo (JD, Johny D) started his surfing career in 1980, on the northern surf beaches of Matosinhos, Porto, Azurara, Moledo do Minho, Maceda, Cortegaça, Esmoriz and Espinho. In 1994, he had to leave his career as a competitor and began a new phase of his life, as a surfing teacher.
Surfing Life Club is the pioneer surf school in Portugal. In its first years, it was recognized as “the original mobile surf school” on the Portuguese beaches, operating since 1994.
Travelling around Portugal searching for the perfect wave, JD met a lot of friends, like Bruno Rodrigues , Peste, Paulo, Afonso, Antonio Mamede, Sofia Valente. Now they are all part of the Surfin life Club team, as well as JD’s wife,  who also feel in love with her husband’s passion.
When JD went on his 1st surf trip around the world and cross Australia, he wanted to bring to Portugal the Australian motto "life is a beach", and opened  his surf school in Porto. It had a great success, and now it is almost 20 years.
Since that time, we've seen thousands of surf schools arriving to the Portuguese beaches, and surfing is now one of the 1st Portuguese hobbies to do in Porto. The dream became reality!

Porto is a city full of life, famous for its 6 bridges and the Porto wine. Come and meet our university city, the streets with centuries of History, and hang out in the best dance clubs and pubs. Considered World Heritage by UNESCO, it is also one of the top ten destinations in Europe, recommended by the Lonely Planet Book. It used to be one of the last undiscovered touristic European cities, but now things are changing. There are now direct flights from New York and numerous connections to and from the rest of Europe, including an increasing number of low-cost airlines.
A city with a valuable history and tradition. It is a highly atmospheric place that has become known for its monuments by renowned architects (Gustave Eiffel's - Dona Maria Bridge, Nicolau Nasoni - Clérigos Tower, Rem Koolhaas' - Casa da Música, or Siza Vieira's - Serralves Museum). Heres was born one of world history's legendary figures, Prince Henry the Navigator. You'll either see in new guidebooks that it is also the birthplace of that world-famous fictional character, Harry Potter – the author, J. K. Rowling, was living in Porto as an English teacher when she started writing her first book. These are just a few curious facts about this intriguing and majestic city. A lot to discover!
