The Surfer should surf and the teacher should teach
WE’RE LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT MIX OF TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE AND PURE LIVING,
TO BE ABLE TO GIVE YOU THE MOST HONEST SURF EXPERIENCE
BORN IN AN EMPTY LINE UP
The Good Surf Good Love brand harkens back to a time of empty line-ups. A few lifetimes ago, when we wanted to share this unique lifestyle, tell the whole world about it, but not many would give it a try. Much has changed since. Everyone has embraced the culture.
Today, everyone understands why we wanted to be at the beach and nowhere else. Closer to the sea, in tune with the waves, at one with nature and living. That’s where we want to take you.

We’re looking for the perfect mix of technical knowledge and pure living, to be able to give YOU the most honest surf experience. It’s all about being authentic and the real culture. The real portuguese culture and the real surf culture!

Technique meets fun
Honestly, there’s nothing flagrantly different about teaching Surf. It’s pretty much like any other sport. Think gymnastics, tennis or football. What do they have in common? Physical mastery and practical knowledge of the body. That’s what we focus on. We help you build control of your body and, step by step, introduce new variables to the environment as you move along the learning curve.
Rinse, dry, repeat
So how do we learn just about anything? We practice. Practice is a repetition of an action with the goal of improvement! And how do we practice efficiently? Have you repeated the right movement enough times? Leave the theory up to us. You might not immediately notice it, but repetition is also about perfecting new emotions and storing
