Advice for new surfers: Keep the fins away from you!!
I’m a local surfer that began regular surfing at the age of 13. In my student days, on my free time, I was always on the water or out looking for waves.
After working for a few big companies in Health & Safety, I decided to follow my passion of teaching surfing. So, I quit the nine-to-five job and began giving lessons, full time, in a local surf school. Here I developed the skills to teach surfing and I later graduated as a certified surf instructor. After this point, I decided to create the Luhu Surf Co. with my friend Luis.
My local knowledge, surf and teaching experience will be perfect for you to start surfing or to further develop your skills.

The North Coast Natural Park is one of the thirteen natural parks of Portugal, it encompasses the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in the municipality of Esposende, half an hour by car, north from the city of Oporto. The park, with a 16km coastline, was created to preserve the dunes and the wildlife between the mouth of the river Neiva and the Village of Apulia – where we are.
This piece of coastline is formed by extensive sandy beaches, dunes and pinewoods, with many surf spots, most of them are beach breaks and some point breaks as well as reef-breaks.
The area is also known for great food. Most of the restaurants here continue to offer the best of the traditional Portuguese cuisine with several customary dishes of the region made of fresh fish, meat and delicious pastries – with a very friendly price!
