My name is Joana Andrade and I am a professional surfer from Ericeira, Portugal. I started competing on a national and European level in 1996 and was at the top of the rankings for years. Nowadays I am a surf coach and a shaper. Last year I started a new challenge: surfing big waves. I am the first Portuguese female surfer to have a go at XXL waves and therefore you could call me a pioneer. From now on I want to focus on surfing big waves in Portugal and the rest of the world.
