Here’s why surf’s not the only thing that’s up in Portugal

Hi Ridge, can you tell us a bit about yourself?

“I am a professional big wave surfer and content creator from the island of Maui. While surfing was always my passion growing up, it wasn’t till I graduated college that I began surfing big waves and taking it more seriously as a profession. Through content creation I really enjoy sharing my experiences in the ocean with the world.”


How long have you been surfing for? How many times have you been to Portugal?

“I’ve been surfing for about 22 years. My parents were pushing me into my first waves at the ripe age of 3 years old. The first time I visited Portugal was in 2020 to surf the big wave spot, Nazare. Since then I’ve gone two more times, specifically to surf that spot.”
