Noun

Pachamama Surfhouse is the dream of two guys who love a simple life of surfing, yoga, nature and travelling. 

Both driven by the same emotions and passions, they decided to change their lives a couple of years apart: Matti started travelling already in 2019, when, after quitting the company he was working for, he found a new job in a Surfhouse in Spain. Iaia arrives as a guest, in the same Surfhouse, in 2020 but continues to work remotely for a consultancy company. It was there that we met and we have not left each other since. We spent a year of pure freedom together, starting to dream of opening our own place. What until a few moments before seemed like something far away became more concrete when on one of our trips we arrived in Ericeira, Portugal, and fell in love with it. 
With the help of a friend and a friend, who were instrumental in the realisation of the project, we took courage, deciding to quit our respective jobs, to finally make our big dream of opening our own Surfhouse, a mirror of our values and our vision of life, a reality.

In 2022, we set off in the van in search of a home, finding it after a short time (when they say that nothing happens by chance). We started working hard, until on 8 April 2022 we threw open the doors of Pachamama Surfhouse, laying the foundations for what would immediately become home to so many people, a Tribe full of positive energy that grows more and more every year.

Iaia

Hi, I'm Iaia

I'm a yoga teacher and I decided to dedicate my life to surfing, yoga, nature, friends and travels. I couldn't have made a better choice!

When people tell me "how brave you were to drop everything and leave", I'm like:  "I just take my board, get in the water, watch the sunset. This is not brave, this is just living!"

I can't wait to share all of this with you :)

I left my home in Italy and I quit my permanent job to chase waves around the world. I've now create my own reality entirely dedicated to surfing, together with my adventures' friends, Iaia, Cami and Borbo.

I'm not good at writing stuff about myself but I can tell you this:

the logo

This is our Pachamama.

A strong woman embodying the powerful Mother Earth.

Her arms form a triangle aiming to the sky, which represent both the wind and the cycle of growth that lead to a higher state of being.

The arms also hold the sun, symbol of warmth and knowledge. (and good weather! 😜)

She stands above the crest of an ocean wave, representing our connection with the sea, water sports and nature. (Or maybe she is just ready for some surfing? 😎)
