The Founder: ED AMORIM
Hailing from the warm waters of Santa Catarina, Brazil, surfing is Ed Amorim’s life. Ed Still recalls the first time his father pushed him into a wave, igniting his passion and inspiring him to start competing at age 11.
Many years later Ed has a solid professional competitive surfing career behind him, including a National Title in 2001. Ed was on tour with the WSL (World Surf League) for many years and has appeared in numerous surfing magazines and media.
As a competitor Ed trained hard and gave his best in every challenge, striving for greater achievements and success. Turning a dream into reality saw Ed undertake further studies at university, completing two degrees, Business and Marketing, and Tourism and Hospitality.
From 2005 to 2011 Ed worked with the WSL as the commentator for Spanish and Portuguese languages. His love for the sea has also led Ed to complete a Dive instructor course and a Commercial Boat Skipper course, further expanding his knowledge and understanding of rocks and rips in the ocean. Most importantly Ed is a certified advanced Surf Instructor recognised by Surfing Australia and the International Surfing Association.
