We are a group of local surfers and coaches who are witnessing a big change in our town and our sport. We decided that we want to make our contribution to making this change more positive.
We want more sustainable and quality surfing in Ericeira.
For that, we build a team of professional and local coaches, who together, create and develop surf programs to coach people to be better surfers.
This is our contribution – in this way we believe that we are creating a more sustainable and professional surf teaching market, bringing more quality and safety to surfing in Ericeira and interconnecting the community.
The backYARD team is made up of specialists in various areas in order to provide a multidisciplinary service. Is also a group of friends and locals from Ericeira who help each other and evolve together.
All our surf coaches are certified by the surf portuguese federation and all our personal trainers are certified with the special technical course of physical exercise.
It’s not a summer job. Our coaches have invested their careers in their activity and dedicate their professional lives to surfing and fitness.
As locals we know Ericeira and its waves like the back of our hands. Ericeira its our home and its wave are our backyard.
WHAT PEOPE SAY ABOUT US
We are a group of friends that grew up together in Ericeira. When we were kids, we learnt how to surf on the beaches close to our home. We used to call them our ‘backyard’. Since then, we have spent everyday surfing Ericeira ́s waves – we know them as well as the palm of our hand.
Although we are adults, we have continued to surf together and made the important decision to share our passion with others.
A SUSTAINABLE AND QUALITY SURF IN ERICEIRA
As locals we love how things were before; empty line ups and enjoying the chilled-out vibe in our hometown. These moments were priceless – but we know things have changed and there is no way to stop it.
If we can’t stop then we will make the best of it.
We will give our best to contribute for a positive change of Ericeira and surfing future.
We believe that together we can achieve more.
We love what we do.
