Hi Fly’s staff recently headed off to surf school for a team-building exercise. The event was organized by the airline principal sustainability partner – the Mirpuri Foundation, and held at Sintra’s stunning Praia Grande, famous the world over for its waves and golden sands.

The class was provided by Soulspot surf School with Big Wave Rider, and Mirpuri Foundation ambassador, António Silva on hand to give the Hi Fly team a few professional tips.

The Hi Fly team were given talked through a few basic moves on the beach before taking to the water to test out what they had learned.

Speaking about the event Ana Agostinho from Mirpuri Foundation said: “It was great fun for all involved. These guys work hard all year so it was nice to see them get a little time to relax and enjoy these beautiful waters. But alongside the fun, there is also a serious message.

The recent ‘Flying the Change,’ campaign was created to Hi Fly staff to raise awareness of the need for ocean conservation in an action-packed, creative and fun way. It was designed to highlight the beauty of the oceans and remind people how important they are to the future of all life.”
