Born where the waves are flat as pancakes, the first page of Gaylord's life has been filled with multiple worldwide surf or SUP trips and active life in the action sports industry. When he turned the 30s, the second page of his life opened to new perspectives. The decision was made: quit everything for Portugal, learn to become self-sufficient and with Sygma SUP school and his sustainable vision, it is now time for him to take action. He is doing his best to provide and develop the best eco-friendly stand up paddle experiences in the Algarve.

"A 100% positive experience"
Gaylord is a very motivating and gifted coach. He focuses on a positive and revarding experience for his guests and gives them a constructive and helpfull critique, whenever necessary. Gaylord raises your awareness for a respectable behaviour towards the other surfers in the water and even points out ecological subjects, what should bother everybody who likes to practice his sport in unspoiled nature. I couldn't get a better start! Thank you Gaylord.
