Organized for the first time in 2012, Sagres Surf Culture is an event that was firstly born out of the urgent need to reflect about the state of surf culture in Portugal, bringing together players from several areas: from art to sustainability, and including history, creativity and public intervention. With its central location at the Memmo Baleeira design hotel in Sagres, municipality of Vila do Bispo, in the heart of The South West Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Natural Park, this whole magnificent setting has been a profound inspiration for the event, helping with the strength of its natural beauty to create the unique ambiance that has been experienced and that has touched both the participants and the public. The event is free to attend and each year a growing number of people has come to witness key note conferences, music, films, exhibitions, concerts and conversations under this spirit of sharing and friendship. A plethora of unique personalities have been included among the invited guests. Artists, thinkers, creators, but first and foremost surfers who share a passion for the ocean.
