My name is Manuel Ferreira and I am the founder of Green Wave Cascais – Surf & Outdoor Experience. I am 22 and I was born in Lisbon. I studied Business and Management in Southampton, United Kingdom.
At only 6 years old I had my first experience on a surfboard with my dad’s support. Since then, I have never stopped. Besides surfing, I also started in my early youth doing windsurf and stand-up paddle. I have got at least 15 years of knowledge, learning and respecting the ocean.
Since my early youth I have had contact with the business world. I made part of many different kind of teams in areas like energy, banking supervision, sports and leisure. At 16 years old I have started working as surf instructor supporter in different surf schools from Guincho to Carcavelos. Since then I have developed a lot of activities with groups of children, students and adults. I was involved in the organization of surf trips around Portugal.
I am very communicative and a dream chaser. Since my young age I have always aimed to be the leader, creating winning teams and moreover overcoming barriers.
