History

 Founded on May 16th 2012, the SURFaddict – Adapted Surf Portuguese Association resulted from the project “Estado Liquido” and is the first adapted surfing association in Europe. Among its founders is Nuno Vitorino, a former Paralympic swimmer.
Goals
Its main objective is to transform the Surf a sport for all. The SURFaddict want to create a movement that allows people with disabilities to enjoy the sea, based on a simple principle: to train the surf schools and create between the surfing community, a great movement of volunteers.
This association has the ambition to defend the rights of practitioners with reduced mobility access to beaches and waves sports, in areas ranging from competition to environmental protection and national surf promotion to those practitioners.
“The SURFaddict want to change mentalities, become blurred the barrier of exclusion and strengthening relations (team spirit), providing physical and mental well-being and contribute to building self-esteem.”
