Living in Aroeira, right next to the beach I naturally became big fan of watersports and 7 years ago I got addicted to Kitesurf. Nowadays I make my job on this amazing sport and love to teach it to other people.

Marketing and Sales Manager I was born in a small town in the interior of Ribatejo, since early I became interested in extreme sports, but only a few years later I discovered kitesurfing. Combining professional experience with my passion for kitesurfing has been the unique experience.

I was raised close to the Lisbon Coast and right next to the beach. This proximity to the sea has influenced me as a child, and I started to kitesurf in 2004. My passion turned soon into a job by associating it with the desire to travel and explore other parts of the world. In 2008 I achieved IKO kitesurf instructor qualification and open my own kite centre in Portugal.

“Eternally grateful”

“...And here I am. Sand under my nails, salt in my hair, with serious wind addiction, proper kite junkie. What would I do without you Gusty Kite? I'm eternally grateful!”

“Professional and great fun”

“I booked an afternoon kite-surfing experience last weekend for nine of us, as a stag-do activity. In advance Pedro was extremely helpful over email. He sorted out transport for us. Unfortunately there was no wind, so he offered a surfing lesson instead.

The instructors were fantastic. Enthusiastic, friendly and offered good advice. 3:1 is a good student:instructor ratio. Water temperature was fine for two hours in a thin wetsuit (which they provided). Value-for-money was excellent.

I would highly recommend Gustykite, and Lisbon in general”

Neil Rickards

“Kiteschool fantástica!”

“Viemos a Portugal para aprender kitesurf e contactámos algumas escolas para obter informações. Nenhuma delas foi tão profissional e simpática como a Gustykite.
Alguns dias antes, fomos contactados pelo nosso instrutor com todas as informações necessárias.

As condições realmente eram muito boas e o instrutor foi muito profissional e tomou todo o tempo necessário para ensinar os primeiros passos com o kite tanto em terra como na água. Por isso, não só aprendemos os conceitos básicos do kitesurf, como também foi muito divertido!

Tivemos um grande momento com a Gustykite e gostaria de recomendar a todos os nossos amigos. Por isso, se realmente quiser aprender kitesurf este é o lugar ideal!”
