2014 World Cup – Ziphius way / Behind the scenes

With the good weather that Portugal had this past week, we couldn’t help but take advantage of it: Ziphius hopped on the pool for some tests! But with a plus. The World Cup was just a couple of days away so we decided to ally work with fun and football – another passion of the Ziphius team. With a little customization and an Adidas Brazuca ball, we played as Portugal and Brazil.
You might’ve watched the video result already. Now we deliver you the behind the scenes. 🙂

Will Garrett McNamara do it again?


All eyes are on this big waves surfer, as he returns to Nazaré on Wednesday, a place he already considers his second home, perhaps to overcome the record beaten a year ago and make history again. Our eyes, as well as Ziphius’ are on him too, especially since it loves the sea so much! Will Ziphius get the chance to “run” into him  again during the next three weeks McNamara is staying in portuguese territory? We remind you that Ziphius and McNamara had a little encounter back in November, and that they took this photo together.

He’s hitting the waves of Praia do Norte over the weekend. The forecast indicates they are going to be big, which is a pretty damn good start.

Ziphius showcasing at Portugal’s Global Entrepreneurism Week

Ziphius will have a special participation in this year’s Global Entrepreneurism week happening in Lisbon from the 18th to the 24th November.

Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world’s largest celebration of the innovators and job creators, who launch startups that bring ideas to life.  It happens all around the world, connecting all these people together. It will take place in Lisbon and Ziphius is going to be part of it.

Our aquatic drone is a good match to this event since one of the main themes is the ocean! Various people from the field are going to take part in it, including Garrett McNamara (this year’s ambassador), the admirable record breaking surfer, who is said to be very curious about Ziphius. 🙂 On Ziphius behalf, there will be António Câmara (president) and Edmundo Nobre (CEO).

You’ll be able to watch Ziphius on the following schedules:

11:15AM – Ziphius demo

12PM – Discussion about entrepreneurship in the ocean sector

Join us on the 18th at the Nautical School Infante D. Henrique in Paço d’Arcos. Full schedule here.

See you there!
