“The LEARNING OF SURFING starts from the ability to HARMONIZE with the SEA ENERGY”,
Prof. Bruno Castello da Costa


Through a mild writing suitable for anyone with the slightest bit of interest in surfing, Prof. Bruno Castello da Costa presents his approach to the teaching of the sport in his book “DISCOVERING THE ESSENCE OF SURFING“. Aiming at surfers, enthusiasts and beginners, Prof. Bruno seeks to trigger awareness regarding the organic aspect of surfing, bearing in mind that the learning must contemplate that ‘live’ dimension of the environment.
