Born and raised in Porto, Tiago discovered surf a long time ago. He has always been attracted to the ocean, not only to its waves but also to its dynamics and ecosystems. This drove him to a Marine Biology Bachelor's Degree and teaching surf lessons at Linha de Onda just for fun. He ended up realizing that it was incredibly rewarding to share his passion with others and so he looking forward to doing it with you!

"Excellent Surf Experience for teenagers "
We selected a 7-days Surf Camp for our 16 and 14 year old daughters. The possibility of selecting the dates for the surf camp according to our needs was excellent. The accommodation was conveniently located in Porto and transportation to and from surf school was provided. Breakfast was good and kitchen facilities were very nice. The surf School is located 2 min. walk from the beach and they have surf boards for all levels. Instructors are very nice and orient each surfer individually. They take pictures and videos from some sessions which is very much appreciated.

"Best first surf experience!"
Had an amazing week with all the guys at Linha de Onda! Everyone is so friendly and encouraging and I learnt SO much, every lesson I had was awesome and the beach is super close to the school. Even though I arrived a complete beginner, I definitely improved a lot, all thanks to the expertise of brilliant coaches!
The hostel is lovely, and within easy walking distance of Porto city centre. Loads to do and see in the city, the free walking tours that go to the hostel are great.
Would highly recommend!
