ANTÓNIO CALADO TRUEB‘The great surfer is not the one who surfs the biggest wave or can perform every trick, but rather the one who is capable of surfing in any sea.’
Since I was born and raised in Vila Nova de Milfontes, I ended up by creating a strong connection with this land. When I was eight years old, I joined SurfMilfontes where, apart from developing a strong connection with the sea, found out a sport that instantly became my great passion. Since then, I’ve been practising Surf every time I can, sometimes along with friends, others alone, always having my board as an old partner.What fascinates me about surfing is the possibility to set out a direct relationship with Nature and the feeling of peacefulness conveyed by the sea. Surf is like a shelter from daily routine, an opportunity to chill-out and switch off from the outside world – more than a challenging sport I accepted it as a lifestyle.In 2018, I became the managing partner of SurfMilfontes, combining a childhood passion and a life project. The eagerness to make the difference and stimulate this town are the main points that had a great influence in the acceptance of such commitment.Talkative and curious by nature, I enjoy travelling and making new friends. I feel particularly intrigued when meeting people from other parts of the World, with different experiences and who, just like me, are ready to listen and share a good story!
