SURF ACADEMY – GOOD SURF GOOD LOVE, WHERE I CAN BE HONEST TO THE CULTURE
AND TRUE TO THE LIFESTYLE.
“Hello everyone! My name is Inês. I was half-time a country girl, living in commerce and agriculture, with family in the countryside. But soon, found that I would have to live near the sea. Been living now at the seaside, for more than 25 years. I’ve become passionate about Sports and Surf, and all my personal and professional life was built around this love, since then.
I started to surf 28y ago, have been Tennis and Triathlon athlete, National Surf Champ in 2000, and a Sports Teacher for more than 22y by now. Surf Coach for 24y now, have created my own method – The METSIT and Surf Academy – Good Surf Good Love, where I can be honest to the culture and trustworthy to the lifestyle”.
THE STORY: LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT
“Since I started to surf, back in the 90’s, everything I lived has in some way been influenced by the surfer lifestyle. The books, magazines and articles I read, the many I haven’t read yet, the casual way i choose to dress, the foods i eat, the house I live in, the car I drive, the friends I hold close, the travel destinations… Every time i’m in the line up instead of being somewhere else… not one drop of water feels out of place. I just know this calling – i am exactly where I am supposed to be. Many times alone in the line up, but always always faithful to my heart.”
Passionate about sports since an early age, forever in love with the ocean, student of all things health, Inês has cultivated a fierce passion for water sports and its mechanics of movement. She is an embodiment of the surfing lifestyle at its best, most unique expression:
She has been a surfer for the past 28 years, has taught sports for the past two decades, and has taught all levels and ages for the past 21 years. To further support her passion and knowledge of the ocean, Inês studied Physical and Sports Education and became an official college teacher at age 23. Later, she returned to University to pursue a post-grad degree, this time in surfing. She hasn’t looked back since.
With Inês, you get the real deal. An honest teacher and an avid student of the sport, with multitudes of knowledge and experience. In a nutshell? Imagine a lifetime doing what you love most and wanting to tell everyone about it. That’s what’s motivated her to teach and coach thousands of ocean novices, enthusiasts and athletes, without ever sacrificing the true essence of this lifestyle.
