Who we are
We are a family of surfers in Ericeira with over 30 years of surfing
SINCE 2005, WE’VE HELPED THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS CATCH THEIR FIRST WAVE IN ERICEIRA…
The Extra Surf School comes to Ericeira as a partner of the prestigious surf brand Rip Curl.
We were the first surf school with a surf shop in Ericeira, to satisfy all the needs of the surfers who came to this wonderful village.
Founded by Vasco Dias, local surfer, Extra Surf School is based on his more 30 years of surfing background and knowledge. Vasco’s passion and knowledge of surfing will come across in your surf lesson and you get that expert instruction and excitement.
This is a surf school that was born to teach you to face all the challenges and makes Surf an integral part of your life.
We want surf to become your battery charger that will leave you healthy and light day by day.
With the long experience and knowledge of surfing, we have managed to maintain our values that we want to have in our surf classes, differentiating ourselves from the other schools. We are of the oldest schools of Ericeira, which continues to work with small groups and with different levels of surfing.
We are demanding with the choice of our team, so we can provide the best surfing lessons in Ericeira.
For us fast and effective learning of our students is a common goal!
Our values is to teach surfing not as a mass sport, but as a personal fulfilment through the gratifying contact with the sea and the wonderful sensation of sliding on the waves.
We believe that surfing goes beyond the sport itself, so we strongly insist on ecological and social components as well, in terms of relationships and ways of being in life.
We privilege the principle of reciprocity, we have great satisfaction in seeing our students happy and fulfilled.
