Guincho Surf School.While surfing a wave we are to relate ourselves with something more than just water moving in many different ways and forms. The waves are pure energy in a liquid state so soon in can provide pleasure and fear, joy and frustration, victory or defeat but always a feeling of inner satisfaction after each surfed.

This very direct relationship with nature and its many sensations makes surfing is something so special that only those who do are able to feel it.

This is our passion will more than 20 years, being a very important part of our lives. Enabling the discovery of this new experience to others and prepare them to deal with the sea in its various conditions led us to found in summer 2000 the "Guincho Surf School."
