David has a vast experience within the surfing world, not only as an experienced surfer but also as a Tourism expert, Surf Instructor, Local Guide, Dining Guru, and all-around point man. Born and raised in Lisbon and living in Cascais for the past 6 years, David has the local knowledge of where the best waves are, the best parties and restaurants in town and the best Lisbon attractions. Surfing since he was 13 years old and teaching people how to surf for the past 10 years, gave him the know-how to be a successful Founder & General manager of Surf Cascais. He has the Portuguese Surfing Federation Certificate for Surf Instructor and a Degree in Hotel and Tourism Management.
Bica is one of those people who feels, breathes and lives sport. He is the one teaching and surfing during the weeks, and competing in triathlons during the weekends. He is an energy machine ready for all kinds of sports.
With his big smile and easygoing humor, the surfing is guaranteed to be fun and easy learning.
When you get that first wave, standing up & screaming of happiness, that’s when you see him at his the happiest too.
Pascal, better known as ''Pasquelito'', he is a true morning grumpy person, but always with a smile after his first sip of coffee. Finished his degree in Business Innovation and decided to take some time off and come to Cascais to teach surfing. His first steps teaching were in Marrocco, where he did his ISA instructor course.
With a degree in Sports and always the biggest smile in town, Diogo was the best acquisition that we could ask for! He has been part of the team since last year, but this summer started to be one of our regular teachers.
