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.
I had a really amazing time at Watermark Surfhouse this autumn. It’s a great cozy place to stay and discover the endless opportunity of potential waves. The hosts and trainers Rui and Ricardo are really great guys. Friendly, warmhearted and competent. Since I’m an intermediate surfer those guys did a really good job in helping me to enhance my surfing…
Best surfcamp I’ve ever been to!
I’ve been to many surfcamps before, but this is by far the best camp so far!!! Ricardo and Rui are two passionate surfers and teachers who really enjoy hoating their guests.
Great surf holidays.
Went surfing with friends for a week, had an amazing stay! Very cozy and cute surf house featuring a great backyard for yoga and BBQs.
Sleep, surf, relax, repeat.
A friend and I just spent a week at the house and we had a really good time. We booked the accomodation & surf package and Ricardo made sure we had everything we needed.
