Finally my new housing from Wave Solutions Water Housings is ready. Thanks Nunito for the great job. It will used with a Nikon d810 and a 24mm or 85mm lens. Can´t wait to test it.
I only ordered the shutter buton and the aperture wheel for it, but if I need I can ad butons on the back plate. That´s one of the advantages of buying this in Portugal, the other one is in case of repair, it´s much easier to send it to Ericeira than Australia, etc.
Don´t know about the color in case of loosing it in the surf, maybe a gopro on it with those red inflatables will help.
Way out north there was this fella I wanna tell ya about. Goes by the name of Eurico Romaguera. At least that was the handle his loving parents gave him, but he never had much use for it himself. See, this Romaguera, he called himself “Kiko”. Got a chance to shoot him logging around Sagres a couple of weeks ago, a cool cat.
The intro text was copied from Big Lebowski movie, one of my times favourite, but check this dudes style, totally legit!
We were tracking this mistery swell that never turned up… Super bad call, it had been pumping a couple of days ago. By the way he lost his wallet, checked the water temperature somking a cigarette and he was very selective with hot girls.

This is legendary Ivo Cação near my home town! I have been trying to get him back down here for ages. This time Zavial was the excuse, but it was almost flat. We scored Tonel today tough! Warm water and all, check it out!
The wonder kid was ripping in trunks, getting some nice barrels and airs. Marlon and Gony were on it too, they think Ivo is Bruno Aleixo, he is a funny cat that´s for sure and a hell of a surfer too!
Bruno is from Coimbra, near Figueira da Foz (Ivo´s birth place and mine). Same accent…
The tide was wrong and the wind sideshore, the banks weren´t perfect, but great waves runned across this point of Buarcos beautiful bay. It was the first day of Liga Meo Surf at Figueira da Foz and the boys were on it warming up for the event.
Check out this little slideshow of the action:

I was born here and lived in this cool street full of old taverns. Lunch time was at Tyrone, where I and Marlon had sardines for days (7 euros with wine and all).
Went up to my city of birth Figueira da Foz to watch the Liga Meo Pro Surf event. The waves were good on the first days. Catched up with my friends Eurico Gonçalves and Miguel Figueira from the SOS Cabedelo organization. This poilicians are trying to build a wall in front of Cabedelo´s wave, that´s why we are saying: NÃO, NÃO, NÃO!
Later in the day we had the privilege to party to the Djs João Maria and José Ferreira. Good vibes as always in this magical place. Had a blast with my new camera too, check out the pics!
Marlon and Melvin Lipke organized this little cerimony to hand me my new friend funded Nikon D810 camera at Mellow loco Bar in Lagos! Super stocked to be able to continue document our oceans moods, etc. Thankyou so much guys.
Every shutter auctuation made with this camera will be yours too. I promise I won´t drop it anymore!
