Management & OtherSurf InstructorsSurf Photo & Video

My name is Linn, 31 years old, and I’m an adventurous girl who loves travels and surf, and to live close to the beach and ocean. I’m a surf and ski addict who’ve been traveled the world, competing, writing, shooting and exploring.  I now want to move back to Portugal and Peniche, and I would love to work at your restaurant and bar.
I’m from Sweden, but my base is in the small surf town Ericeira in Portugal, and now I want to relocate to Peniche.

 

I’m studying through distance, part-time, at the university in Sweden – Certified International Travel consultant and Travel producer, Travel & Tourism management. School is on hold during summer, and I would love to work with you.

 

I write to you because I am applying for the job in your restaurant and bar, that was advertised on Surf-jobs! I have many years of experience from working in restaurants, bar, hotel and reception – as a waitress, bartender, bar manager, hostess, kitchen assistant, chef and receptionist.
I know what is all about, delivering good service and work with customers, and I would be very happy to be a part of your team, with my knowledge, positive attitude and great energy.

 

 

I grew up on the west coast of Sweden – and I’m born and raised as a skier. So, I’ve been living in a ski resort further north in Sweden, Åre, and in several ski resorts in the Alps and US. I traveled and worked for a couple of years as a ski guide and at ski shops.

 

2014 was the year I first tried out surfing, in Portugal, and I got hooked to live a life among the waves and next to the beach.  Since then I’ve been traveling to surf in Central America, Europe and Asia.  But my home is now in Portugal where I love spending time in the water and on the Portuguese coastline.

 

I’ve been working at several surf camps and surf hostels in Norway, France, Spain, Portugal, Sri Lanka and Philippines, as a social host, camp manager, kitchen assistant, chef and bartender.
I have also been working in many other bars, restaurants and shops in Sweden and Norway.

 

 

Besides working in the service industry- I also do writing, I I’ve was studying journalism and marketing.
I’ve been working freelance for the surfing company Lapoint Surfcamps, where I work on their Swedish website with copywriting and content writing, social media marketing and translating texts. But now during these hectic times it’s on hold.
And translations for NF Academy, a Portuguese football company, and in customer service and as a travel consultantfor travel agency Thabela Travel in Cape Town, South Africa.

 

I’m involved with the Swedish Surfing Association where I’m a part of the board, and helping out with marketing and events.
I’m also ambassador in surf for a company who inspires girls in watersports and winter sports – InspireUs – who works for equality in sports.

I believe that qualities as responsibility, good social skills, be aware, independent, positive, flexible, disciplined and orderly are very important. I am a good team player, with a positive vibe and friendly smile! I spread a good energy and laughter.

 

I look forward to hearing from you soon!
Best regards,

 

Linn Oredson
