GUSTYKITE appears in 2003 in Guincho beach, the worldwide known windy beach, West of Lisbon. With almost no schools at the time we became the most recognized company in Portuguese market. The next years we follow the growth of the sport and become the most successful kitesurf school in Lisbon area, having hundreds of students per year.
In 2007 we opened new stations in Aveiro and Algarve and few more until 2010 with the first school in Angola.
A renewed website and image in 2008, and again in 2013, adapting to the new upcoming technologies and more demanding customers, and new schools appear both in Portugal as abroad becoming an international kitesurf company.
The project gets new blood in 2017 with more people in management, both on the beach as in back office, to keep it up to date and efficient. A brand new website is presented, our Courses get small tweaks to improve customer appreciation, and the business gets focused in Lisbon area, where we were born, 14 years ago.
Living in Aroeira, right next to the beach I naturally became big fan of watersports and 7 years ago I got addicted to Kitesurf. Nowadays I make my job on this amazing sport and love to teach it to other people.
Head Instructor - Senior Instructor for 11 years As most Australians my connection with the sea is super strong since I was a kid. 11 years ago i discovered kitesurfing and since then my greatest passion is to make learning this sport a pleasant and thrilling experience.
Marketing and Sales Manager I was born in a small town in the interior of Ribatejo, since early I became interested in extreme sports, but only a few years later I discovered kitesurfing. Combining professional experience with my passion for kitesurfing has been the unique experience.
I was raised close to the Lisbon Coast and right next to the beach. This proximity to the sea has influenced me as a child, and I started to kitesurf in 2004. My passion turned soon into a job by associating it with the desire to travel and explore other parts of the world. In 2008 I achieved IKO kitesurf instructor qualification and open my own kite centre in Portugal.
“...And here I am. Sand under my nails, salt in my hair, with serious wind addiction, proper kite junkie. What would I do without you Gusty Kite? I'm eternally grateful!”
“Professional and great fun”
“I booked an afternoon kite-surfing experience last weekend for nine of us, as a stag-do activity. In advance Pedro was extremely helpful over email. He sorted out transport for us. Unfortunately there was no wind, so he offered a surfing lesson instead.
The instructors were fantastic. Enthusiastic, friendly and offered good advice. 3:1 is a good student:instructor ratio. Water temperature was fine for two hours in a thin wetsuit (which they provided). Value-for-money was excellent.
I would highly recommend Gustykite, and Lisbon in general”
“Viemos a Portugal para aprender kitesurf e contactámos algumas escolas para obter informações. Nenhuma delas foi tão profissional e simpática como a Gustykite.
Alguns dias antes, fomos contactados pelo nosso instrutor com todas as informações necessárias.
As condições realmente eram muito boas e o instrutor foi muito profissional e tomou todo o tempo necessário para ensinar os primeiros passos com o kite tanto em terra como na água. Por isso, não só aprendemos os conceitos básicos do kitesurf, como também foi muito divertido!Tivemos um grande momento com a Gustykite e gostaria de recomendar a todos os nossos amigos. Por isso, se realmente quiser aprender kitesurf este é o lugar ideal!”
