Born in 1976 in Oporto, Portugal, Nuno "the captain" Viegas started surfing from an early age and became hooked on the sport and lifestyle. He began competitive surfing on the PRO Junior circuit at the age of 15 and his competition surfing continues to this day as he receives invitations to compete in masters events.
After years of travelling and life in the corporate world Nuno has returned to the passion in his life, free surfing, coaching some young surfers prepping them for competitions and he also utilises his surf judge qualifications judging a number of the Portuguese surf championships. It doesn’t stop there as Nuno also runs a boutique surf hostel in the western Algarve where he welcomes travellers and surfers from across the globe.
Nuno joined Northcore in 2015 bringing his skills and knowledge to the business leading our European marketing programme and heading up Northcore Portugal. He’s going to be out and about on the road again this year so if you see him in your local surf store please say hi as he’d love to speak with you.
