What you'll do
This experience is for adequate surfers - the ultimate Nor Cal surfing experience! Join me on a insider access to a town that has endless secrets in both surfing and lifestyle. We'll start the day at my favorite cafe in town, meet each other, talk story, and figure out our best spot for the day. Each day is unique, so according to your surf level, the conditions, swell direction, and tides, we'll pick the best place to have a blast. After a morning coffee, we'll head out to the beach close by and surf til we're exhausted. My surfing experience will allow me to give you tips and techniques to improve in our session. I'm stoked to meet you and have an adventure!
Hi surfers, welcome to Santa Cruz! I am a former pro surfer born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 13 years ago I moved to Santa Cruz to live, work, and most importantly, surf :) I currently work for the WSL, World Surf League as a commentator and analyst and am a yoga teacher on the side. On a daily basis I am hanging around the amazing town of Santa Cruz, traveling and looking for great surf. Join me for an epic experience!
