The action guy
Gonçalo started surfing with his brother Miguel at the age of 12. They would spend all their summer vacations surfing and became so addicted that the owner of their surf school eventually gave them a spare key so that they could surf whenever they wanted, all year round. Together with his brother he travelled all over Portugal competing in national surf competitions.
Gonçalo also loves to travel to warm and tropical places, to discover new cultures and surf perfect warm water waves. He is an adrenaline junkie who is always searching for where the action is, the action junkie. In the water he loves trying out as many tricks and maneuvers as possible.
He is our surfing guru, making him our ideal surf school manager. He is responsible for all the lesson organisation and ensures that we have the best qualified instructors. As a surf teacher himself, he has specialised in teaching kids surf for many years and the love his funny character.
