João de Macedo

João, son of Portuguese parents, was born in June 1, 1977, in New Haven, Connecticut. He began his surfing adventure by bodyboard at age seven in Praia Grande, Sintra. Back then, he found his lifetime passion in Atlantic Ocean roughness. This passion inevitably became a career connected to the sea: he was the first Portuguese, and European, professional surfer to qualify to paddle in the WSL Big Wave Tour, wich he finished in the Top 5 back in 2012/2013 season. He graduated in Economy in the year 2000, and in the same year he founded "Surf Academy" ( in Praia Grande and Carcavelos; In California, he was the co-founder and project manager of the World Surfing Reserves ( João de Macedo is also known for paddling the giant waves of North Beach.



Ricardo Diniz

Ricardo Diniz

Originally from a fishing village in Portugal, Ricardo has travelled the world fast and furious as an offshore sailor and young entrepreneur. 

By the age of 24 Ricardo had approached over 4000 companies around the world. His day to day was about hitting up big companies for big bucks to fund big dreams. Most of them said NO! This tough, often soul destroying trek, proved to be essential in defining his passion for excellence and team work. A master of all trades, he can often be found on the oceans as a super yacht Captain, a Chief Engineer, or a solo sailor with clever ideas for unique projects. He is also a weather router and expedition manager for climbers, ocean rowers and sailors. 

As an accidental Life Coach he has hundreds of people around the world seeking his advice on a regular basis on topics from start-ups and business to relationships. For years Ricardo has passionately promoted Portugal globally through creative sailing and educational projects, now making him one of the most sought after speakers in schools, universities and companies. This year alone he has given talks at Liberty Insurance, Tetra Pak and Oracle. He was one of three speakers at the Star Tracker event in Lisbon, promoting global Portuguese talent. In recognition of his work and commitment to the oceans, the European Comission nominated him European Ambassador for the Oceans. Shortly after he was a finalist in Portugal’s Most Motivating Person Award. 

CNN, BBC, National Geographic and pretty much every single major portuguese media have generously covered Ricardo’s projects since 1996. Co-Founder and President of the Portugal Ocean Race, Ricardo is on a mission to create "the world’s leading around the world yacht race as the ultimate way to communicate Portugal’s incredible maritime and business potential to the world”. But he will tell you that it’s just “All about the people”, describing his work as simply “Cultivating Human Potential”.
