ABOUT US


PORTO SURF COMPANY

The basic idea of the Porto Surf Company was to create a place in the north of Portugal where beach lovers, surfers and friends of urban experiences and culture can find a common place to go and enjoy a relaxed holiday in a family atmosphere. To achieve this we have created two locations in Porto: One directly in the center of the city and the other right at the beach, 25 kilometers further north.

OUR STORY


THE BEGINNING

The PORTO SURF COMPANY (PSC) is founded by the three surf buddies Hugo Taipa, Stefan Strauss and João Cavalho. For decades they have not only been on the surfboard themselves, but also live and work in the world of surfing. Each of them has set his own individual focus, such as competition surfing, the organization of surf competitions, writing surf books, running a surf school as well as the organization and implementation of surf camps and surf trips.


TODAY

Today PORTO SURF COMPANY is managed by our international team, comprising experts for water sports like Surfing and SUP, professional instructors, passionate surfers, nature lovers and tourism experts as guides and competent service staff.

We attach great importance to the holiday of our guests and participants while making their stay as perfect as possible. Whether in the surf course, on our tours  or in the surf lodge –  we bring commitment, passion and expertise to our work to assure an unforgettable surf AND vacation experience. We take pleasure in what we do and we are proud of what we jointly achieved.
