Hey, I am Carina Duarte

Surfing is the way I express myself

I have been in the ocean all my life, an interesting thing is that none of my family does any type of water sports!

The water is my habitat, I transform myself when I’m in the water and surfing is the way that I express myself. I have been a professional surfer for several years and nowadays I’m a professional surfcoach and I love teaching and sharing my knowledge so others can enjoy surfing, understand the ocean and being safe in the water will be practicing such an amazing sport that connects us to nature.
