The engine of Calhau is originally from mainland Portugal. He spent his youth traveling the world as an architect and surfer before finding his “home” here in Madeira in 1992.
Born in Madeira Island, Filipe lives close to the Maiata Beach. He knows the sea and island really good. Providing a safe and unique experience in surf on Madeira. His goals are for everyone to be successful and be safe in the water. And of course to enjoy the surf with us.
Locally born, he is the regional champion in bodyboard for several years in a row and knows our home “break” better than anyone. He spends most of his time in the water and lives right at the beach. Our “Duro” is like a fish in the water, you can expect to learn a lot from him.
