Instructors

Ricardo Pires
Ricardo has a calm and idiosyncratic connection to surf. For him, surfing is not just a sport, it’s a life fulfilling experience. With his surfing, he shows that reaching harmony is a tireless quest where you need to find the moment in your favor and be able to grasp it to express unity. One move can make a thousand waves. Ricardo truly believes in it that surf means to him an enormous and sincere gratitude. Since surf dazzled him, in the age of 14 with a magic 5´10 board that belonged to his best friend Mica, he’s been riding the waves around Ericeira.

Location

This surf camp will take place at Ericeira, Portugal. Ericeira is located on the westernmost tip of continental Portugal, 40 kilometers northwest of the capital, Lisbon. The town has strong seafaring traditions and has a rich history as a stepping stone for legendary explorations, adventurers, and voyagers.

This old fishing community of Ericeira is picturesquely draped across sandstone cliffs, floating above the Atlantic Ocean. The traditional whitewashed town is popular with Portuguese tourists seeking a quick weekend getaway and is equally renowned for spectacular ocean vistas and excellent seafood restaurants.

Ericeira is one of Europe’s prime surfing destinations and was designated as one of nine World Surfing Reserves around the globe. Wave riders from all over the world come here for the great waves of all levels, from beginner beach breaks such as Foz do Lizandro to world-famous reef breaks like Ribeira de Ilhas.
