    SUP instructor Nick

    Nick is a certified surf instructor of the British Surfing Association and keen SUP (Stand up Paddleboarding) enthusiast.
    Having spent a lifetime around the ocean sailing/windsurfing and surfing in various locations a few years back Nick decided to launch a stand up paddleboard school in Portugal after realizing the enormous potential for this fast developing sport for almost anyone any age whatever skill level.

    With a passion for life and people from all different cultures he realized his dream to work with people and introduce them to this new and exciting sport.
    The transition from surfing to paddle boarding was an easy one with the added advantage of being able to go out even when the waves were flat and just cruise with friends exploring this amazing coastline.
