As for me, my name is Belmiro Mendes and I’m a Free-Surfer, certified instructor by FPS (Portuguese Surfing Federation) and also the founder of “Salty”. I have a Tourism Degree and I have been surfing for almost 20 years now (almost since I remember)… Over the last 14 years, I also dedicate my time giving surf, Stand Up Paddle and bodyboard lessons. Water is my life, having fun and sharing all I love is my philosophy, because things feel even better when you have the privilege to share what you love with people around you and that’s what Salty is all about… My goal is to share with you all this spirit of adventure, this love that I feel for the ocean and also this beautiful paradise that I am lucky enough to call home, all in one! So, let’s find out if you have what it takes to get ‘Salty’ ! Are you with me?
