Portugal Surf Guide

Portugal Surf Guide

Mindshaker Servicos Informaticos

Portugal has over 800 km of coastline with a constant flow of Atlantic swell and that makes it an excellent surfing destination. In Portugal it is not necessary to travel far to find a wave to enjoy the best of surf and harmony between man and nature, and it is possible to combine surfing with the best the country has to offer.
With the Portugal Surf Guide APP you will discover all this and more: the best waves, it’s location, waveform characteristics, how to get, where to eat, where to sleep, where to learn to surf, among other features.

Moments Surf

Moments Surf

Moments Surf

In the world of surf, photographers and surfers are not properly connected. 75% of surfers don’t have the chance to have professional photos taken of themselves, while 95% of the photos taken by professional photographers end up without being used or sold. Needless to say that there’s a huge gap between them and there really shouldn’t be.

That’s why we created Moments.Surf. A global platform that connects surfers to photographers.

We use an exclusive algorithm to located, identify and connect surfers to photographers creating exciting opportunities for both. Photographers can now upload their photos to Moments.Surf and surfers all around the world can buy them and share it directly on their social network.

More than just a market place, we behave like a social network for the surf community, offering waves forecast, shared agendas for photographers and direct dialogues between surfers and photographers.

Moments.Surf, we connect surfers to photographers.
