What you'll do

I will be waiting for you at Porto's local beach (meeting point) to start our surftrip to a nearby Porto surf spot. We'll search for challenging waves in uncrowded beaches, since this experience is targeted for intermediate to advanced surfers.

North of Portugal coastline offers also excellent surf spots, although not yet so famous, that in truth is an advantage for you! ;)

At the spot, and before head into the water, we'll analyze together ocean conditions, remember safety procedures, and surf etiquette.

During your experience, I'll guide you in the lineup, through the best banks, in order to make you get the most of it.

At the end you'll be able to find that you got some great waves, but above all, you'll enjoy an amazing great energy of being surfed out, inspired by the opportunity to surf a new spot.

Once back in the meeting point, we can hang around, take a beer at the local shop by the beach and soak up their surfing atmosphere.

*Whenever possible I will provide pictures of your experience for free! Under request, I can always hire a professional surf photographer, for you.
Other things to note

In partnership with World Surf League

World Surf League approved
This experience is hand-picked by the WSL, home of the world’s best surfers.


As the governing body for the sport of professional surfing, the World Surf League (WSL) oversees a global tour of men’s and women’s shortboard, longboard, big wave, and development tier competitions, and has crowned annual world champions since 1976. Its members include more than 2,500 of the world’s best surfers, and millions of fans around the world. Supporting pros and beginners alike, the WSL believes that the more time we spend in the water, the better the world will be.

Where you'll be

Due to COVID-19 we'll avoid the main local spot, frequently crowded, and with lack of waves during the summer. We’ll head to the best day spot for surfing, regarding your experience, (from intermediate to advanced surfers) and current swell conditions. Seek for the best surfing spot, empty line-ups, with total attention and safety.

Let’s trade some waves together ;)

Joao provided a top level surf guiding experience. He showed me two spots that were working and let me choose. Joao has a deep knowledge of the local area and is well connected to/ respected by the Porto surf community. Premium service.

I had a blast surfing with João. If you are a surfer traveling to Porto, this is a perfect experience. João will pick you up in his car with equipment and local knowledge of uncrowded surf spots around Porto. Rather than spending half of a day renting a car, gearing up, and trying to figure out where to surf, just book this experience. João is a great guy and a pleasure to surf with. I would do this again in a heartbeat, and wish this type of experience was available in more places.
