Cycling and bike travelling is my life and passion. I travelled south and Eastern Europe, Morocco and wide parts of South America by bike. I guided tours in the Alpes, at Algarve and now in Lisbon. I never owned a car but always had a bike. I like to share this love for biking. It keeps you in sharp, helps you to know your place, is good for the environment. Sometimes is the fastest way and always the best way to reach where ever! I like to share this love for biking. I got a bike-garage you´re free to use, I do tours around Lisbon you’re welcome to join and I got a few bikes to borrow. I write stories, take pictures and collect impressions from my trips and travels. I´m not a racing champion but I ride thousands of kilometers every year. And I ́m not a mechanic but once I fixed a broken wheel with a screwdriver and two rocks. I ́m just a guy who spends all his time next to his bike. Whatever you’re looking for, I can’t promise to help you, but I would love to try.
3 SURFERS SCHOOL
3SURFERS Surf School is situated right in the centre of the village of Ericeria. Our School is born of a common dream of three friends: to share the knowledge we have acquired from years of practising the art of surfing.
Our main objective is to practice and teach surf in the best ways, so our students can learn to surf, or learn to surf better. Our school is different. Because it is owned and run by local surfers from Ericeira, we have a deep understanding and knowledge of the area. We know the best surf spots, and choose the best places to surf, depending upon the weather and surf conditions.
Our goal is to share our knowledge & passion of surfing, so that others can enjoy it as we do. Whether beginners or improvers, we strive to provide an unforgettable, unique experience and window into the great world of surf culture.
Each of our surf instructors is qualified and certified by the Portuguese Federation of Surf. Each holds a “Cédula de Treinador de Desporto”, provided by the Portuguese Institute of Sports and Youth. These professionals work hard to connect the surf culture with nature in order to build a unique and unforgettable experience for all its students.
Also, and in accordance with the law, we have personal accident & civil responsibility insurance.
3SURFERS is situated in the centre of the village of Ericeira, 38 km northwest from the centre of Lisbon, 20 km from Sintra and 9km from Mafra. Located in the Mafra district, this area is also internationally recognized as the “Mecca of Surf” in Portugal & one of the best surf destinations in Europe.

I’m the guy that will drive you through the coast during the trip.
Born and raised in France in a Portuguese family, I came in Portugal in 2017 after a long travel through Asia.
Beginning 2018, I graduated as a surf instructor for sharing my knowledge and my passion to other people.
This same year, I went in Sri Lanka to teach surfing and meet a new Asian culture that I didn’t know yet. After this trip, I decided to open an hostel in 2019 in Ericeira called Lagun Ericeira.
After 4 years of joy and meeting great people, I wanted to give more options to my clients that became friends. For that reason, WavesFinder came out.
WavesFinder will allow you to surf through the north or south coast whenever you want during your trip that you will choose.
