About us

We are more than a kite school

"MyWay" is our philosophy of life, which we would like to share and experience with you!

More or less by chance (what is "chance" anyway), our team around Matthias has been together for the past 20 years. How his idea for MyWay came about and how he got to know each and every one of us is accordingly a long story that he will be happy to tell you over a beer around the campfire;). However, one thing should be said in advance: we share a passion for water sports and nature, appreciation of simple and small things and the life of the moment.

Dirk

Bar manager

Once upon a time, Dirk was 9th in the world in kite racing, now he´s enjoying his days managing his own kiteschool in Sylt and Romo. For the winter he´s escaped to the beautiful lagoons at Gafanha da Nazare, where he shreds like a pro. Managing the bar and making you a happy and slightly drunk customer is his duty, so don´t judge him for pouring potent but delicious drinks.

The idea

The idea behind "MyWay - Kite&Surf" is not just another Kite and Surf School, but a whole lifestyle concept that offers an unforgettable stay. It combines sports, good and healthy food and unique events, paired with culture and many shopping opportunities. All services such as shuttle, accommodation and entertainment are offered by us in order to be able to provide a holistic, stress free package that starts at the airport and ends there after the holiday… MyWay Style!!

The internationally certified kite and surf school just one hour south of Porto (Portugal) attracts cool people from all over the world, who either travel alone, in groups or with their family and kids. In addition to a wide range of sports (Kite, Surf, SUP, Surfskate, Wakeboard…) we also set our focus on Fitness & Wellness (Yoga, Pilates, Personal Training, Meditation, Massage), what not only keeps you fit, but also brings people together. We furthermore want to differentiate ourselves through the rich offer for children, who are supervised by professional staff, while parents can pursue their hobby or simply relax. 

Safety and the highest quality in harmony with nature have top priority for us. It starts with the international team, consisting of passionate kitesurfers who are all crazy for the project and have relevant experience in their respective areas of responsibility. The station will have the latest equipment and only certified kite instructors who can teach in a variety of languages. Trained lifeguards ensure safety, monitor the action with motor boats and jet skis and, in an emergency, have the injured brought to the modern hospital with intensive care unit just 10 minutes away. We offer a special kind of childcare for our guests so that the parents can pursue their surf passion and their kids get supervised by professionals and introduced about many important subjects like Enviormental issues.
