Tomás Valente

Free Surfer / Profissional Surfer

With SURFISIO I started to feel more confidant while surfing, because we work to avoid injuries that may occur when we try more risky maneuvers, like aerials. When I get injured I know I have the best rehab treatment available, and feel more relieved to work with them , since they have experience with many other different athletes.

António Silva

Free Surfer and Big Wave Rider

I met SURFISIO back in 2011 because I have a low back chronic injury and the pain just didn´t go away. I had a tailor-made programme with SURFISIO, concerning physiotherapy, acupuncture and specific training that allowed me to travel to Indonesia and surf there for 3 months without any pain or discomfort. Since then I never had back pain anymore and I don´t skip any SURFISIO training, because I feel confidant and prepared either to everyday surfing or tow-in surfing. They are always available to help and advice, during and after injury.

I’ve been working with SURFISIO since 2013, and I felt this would be good for me in terms of injury prevention and preparing/ recovering for training and competitive season. Having weekly sessions allows me to treat on time any problem that I might have, and with stretching and Chinese medicine I’ve been felling my body fit and ready to give 100% at all time.
