Sliding Society


Went to Faro for this longboarding contest to have some wine with old friends, the waves sucked, but who cares even met new ones like João Lima and Diogo Gonçalves. Almost made a tatoo with Catherina Cardoso too, ahah! Check out the action.

Thanks Necas for the nice event, always nice to go back to this little island. Congrats to the winner Olimpo and Maria Rosário.

Tiago had told me this fantastic story when he and this Israeli surfer surfed perfect Coxos by themselfs. Turns out Yoni was the guy and between finishing his doctor internship in Israel he flew here to score this swell.  Check out his story!

Brek: How long have you been surfing?

Yoni: 20 years.

Brek: Do you remember your first good ride?

Yoni: I sure do .. I got barreled in the Maldives when I was 13 the wave felt like 6 foot it was probably one foot.

Brek: What is your regular spot?

Yoni: Country beach , Tel Aviv.

Brek: Any message you want to leave?

Yoni: Respect the locals, and if you are a local and see a new guy that is respectful in the line up , give him a wave sometime , you might make his trip…

Carve Magazine: Print is not Dead


Despite some haters, english media is spreading my love. Young gun João Mendonça is featured in this spread from the latest Carve mag issue. Epic day at Z-point, fuckers!!! Seems like the last hawaian season was worth it. Didn´t make it out of the barrel, but check out this kid´s flair:


This was supposed to be an ad for Billabong, but some back stabbing killed the deal, who cares, I got fish to catch.

No Peniche Closeouts Here

nic against the grain

Portugal waves have been heavily criticized, first it was Nazaré and now it´s Peniche´s Supertubos… Well, I didnt got either places, the name of the game here is variety! I stucked to Sagres and Ericeira as you probably know from Stab magazine.

problably the best wave in europe

Here´s some photos of my Meo Rip Curl Peniche Pro week:

And there are many waves in the north too… The islands maybe too…

Bumped into Diogo Appleton in the Gliding Barnacles festival in Figueira da Foz. A cool cat. This little waves finnaly rolled through Cabedelo. Tommorow´s forescast is looking good!
