The Surfriders Ericeira is, as the name already implies, all about surfing and the pure feeling of freedom that comes with the surfsport and a life by the ocean. We open the doors and invite you to become a part of the Surfrider community while experiencing the portuguese surfing lifestyle like a local. ​


We are surfers by heart; grown up at the best surf spots of Portugal and know the portuguese coastline like nobody else. And because surfing means everything to us, we decided to share our passion for the waves and the ocean and found Surfriders Ericeira in 2016.


Because we traveled a lot ourselves, we know how important it is to feel welcome. That´s why we do everything to make you feel home away from home. ​ If you like to get a little impression whats going on at Surfriders Ericeira, meet our team and see our galery.
