The Event

EDP Surf Experience was a project designed to create an opportunity for children in institutions and public in general to participate in free surf classes, yoga and art workshop classes.

Encouraging the practice of sport was the main objective of the EDP Surf Experience initiative, aimed at children from social institutions and those who wanted to try surfing. From the 7th to 14th September it was possible to experience the feeling of surfing the first waves with the help of EDP in Carcavelos beach with the truck “Let’s Go”, offering surf lessons, drawing and painting workshops and yoga classes.

At EDP, we believe that the development of creativity has a positive impact on the self-esteem of young people and the practice of Yoga provides a healthy mind, and therefore, everyone present, had the opportunity to try it for free.

Given the current circumstances, EDP had to reinvent and be closer than ever to the public, and so we decided to create this new event and always be aware of the safety measures towards the fight against COVID19.
