If you’re a surf fan, you will have heard the name Frederico Morais, better known as Kikas, one of the current top Portuguese surfers. The Blue Room is the brainchild of Morais and two of his friends, all of them Cascais natives. Teaching surf, particularly to kids (as young as six years old) is its main mission, but The Blue Room goes beyond a traditional surf school. Here, according to a manifesto of sorts posted on the school’s site, the goal is to “develop the human being, showing all the good sensations this sport has to give, encouraging a healthy lifestyle, the feeling of sharing and giving all the tools necessary for each student to take the most out of every wave”. There’s individual lessons, groups lessons for two to five people and a family experience pack, for parents and children. The school also organizes corporate events.
