João started his surfing career in 1980, on the northern surf beaches of Matosinhos, Porto, Azurara, Moledo do Minho, Maceda, Cortegaça, Esmoriz, and Espinho. In 1994, he had to leave his career as a competitor and began a new phase of his life, as a surfing teacher.

"Excellent rest with perfect people in amazing location! "
I liked simply everything, starting with the almost wild beach, cool instructor Tomas and finishing with the atmosphere at the cozy place I lived 3 nights! Highly recommend cause I'm planning to come back one day for sure :)

"Perfect experience!! Highly recommend it"
We had a great time with João and Joana! They welcomed us like childhood friends, and took us out to eat and sightseeing in Porto and the coast . Hostel facilities are very good, everything is available, and it feels like home. The school has a good structure for lessons, with all equipment needed for beginners.
