João Santos João Santos

I was born on the outskirts of Ericeira. I have always lived here. The sea has always been part of my daily life. 

About 30 years ago, I started to surf. First casually, with a group of friends, then more seriously.

At that time I never thought that I would make my surf hobby my profession. It has never been my intention to go into the competitive world of Surfing
For me, surfing for me is natural, free and without obligations or concerns.

In 2009, after working at many other things, the opportunity arose to take the the Portuguese Surfing Federation Coaching Course. Since then I have turned my passion into my profession, which I do with the greatest commitment.

I am Certified to Level 2, by the Portuguese Surfing Federation

My training included:

  • Sport Psychology
  • Sport Pedagogy
  • The theory and methodology of Sports Training
  • Professional Ethics and Deontology
  • The fight Against Doping
  • Exercise physiology
  • Sport Biomechanics
  • Nutrition, Training and Competition
  • Sports Traumatology
  • Sport for People with Disabilities
  • Organization and Management
  • Arbitration
  • Specific Didactics
  • Specific Training Methodology
    I take fitness seriously and keep in shape. To complement Surfing, I go Mountain biking every week & run whenever I can.
