It’s often said that Surfing is a way of life – that’s certainly true for Josephine and Ricardo who run the Azores Surf Centre on the island of São Miguel.

Their mission is a simple one: they love to surf and they want to share that passion with visitors to their island. Their philosophy is one of respect for the ocean and the oceanic environment around the Azores. The centre is situated on Santa Barbara beach of north coast of São Miguel. During the summer months, the north coast tends to offer more consistent conditions for both beginners and experienced surfers to enjoy a successful surfing holiday. All abilities can be catered for and all equipment provided; you just need to bring your bathing suit, towel and sunblock.

We’ve recently started working with Bernardete and her team at the Vila Nova Surf Centre on the island of Terceria – another exciting activity to add to our Terceira Family Holiday.
