Our company is based on the common idea of creating a place in the North of Portugal, where surfers, beach lovers and friends of urban experiences and culture can unite and find a place to enjoy together a surf holiday in a relaxed and family atmosphere. For this we do have two different locations in Porto: One is located in the center of Porto and one is located right at the beach, 25 kilometers further north.
