Brothers Nuno and Edgar, born in the fishing town of Peniche and surfers from a very early age, opened Special Surf 78 in 2011.
They returned to Peniche after pursuing academic training in Sports and Physical Education in Leiria, committed to laying down roots in their birth town, and opened an innovative surf school, Special Surf 78, an inclusive school for everyone with professional instructors who can cater for a wide variety of needs and any learner.

Nuno and Edgar specialized in Special Education with the specific aim of being more inclusive. This allows them to welcome people with all sorts of special needs at their surf school.
Nuno and Edgar are committed to their activity and to using didactic and educational knowledge while teaching surf, along with values of companionship, solidarity, and sustainability, so Special Surf 78 remains a landmark school in Peniche.
