How we got started

We are three guys who grew up with the sea breeze, waves and in between surfboards. This love story about the ocean, beach and surfing lifestyle turned more and more serious. We love traveling and that’s how we met several people from all over the world. On one of these journeys we discovered a lovely house by the beach, with some nice waves and, most importantly, introduced us to some wonderful people. Even though we were about 10.000 km apart, we felt home. Later, when the opportunity came we started Watermark Surf House in northern Portugal – Esmoriz and Espinho, just a few minutes from Porto.

In the north of Portugal you can count on a relaxed daily life, lot’s of natural areas, surf spots (beach breaks and point breaks) and a laid-back surf community.

We used all our past experiences as inspiration and try to set a familiar atmosphere with small groups and close relations, using surfing for common bonding. With this experience in mind, we developed a personal and fun surfing experience in a beautiful and not yet overcrowded area.
