Joana Andrade

Change your daily life

Throughout her career as a big wave surfer, Joana Andrade has collected the best techniques and tips to feel comfortable in the waves.

Joana felt to bring the experience of surf into a bigger spectrum on this retreat. She is focused on bringing the surf experience through her eyes, integrating some tools that she uses to surf the waves of Nazaré. Through her training, Joana understood that some of the tools that she uses to prepare herself for the big waves could be used in her daily life. She understood that those tools were important and made a change in her life so, others could benefit from them.

There's no need that you are a professional surfer or a very advanced surfer to use those tools. They are, in these retreat adapted to ALL Surf Levels & to ALL kind of women who resonate with them.
