2020 Calendar

It´s been a while since I do this calendars, probably 6 years now, skipped last year though (beer septicemia)... This year I am making them right and they are going to arrive in time for sure. Still fixing colors in a couple, but I think it is looking great already. I want to make 2020, … Continue reading 2020 Calendar

Russel Brek

There should be a comma in the title. I wouldn´t mind the name Russel though, kiwi Russel Crow is a cool bloke and this kid... what a bout Russel Bierke? Maybe the most talked surfer of the moment, right? His clip FLOWSTATE is setting the surf world on fire, for sure! Well, I met him not … Continue reading Russel Brek

Crème De La Crème

I started logging some years ago after I saw Gato Heroi surfing at the Salinas Longboard festival, back in the day. It was not easy for me to make the transition after 3 decades of carving on little thrusters. I was only riding single fins at the end, but still I struggled. The finesse needed … Continue reading Crème De La Crème

In Between Magic: Searching For Eurico Romaguera

You never know where the serendipitous journey of following perfect surf will take you. And if you are following Kiko´s footprints on this blue planet you better embrace some chaos on the way. Eurico Romaguera aka Kiko is a classic surfer who doesn´t like dawn patrols. He is allergic to kooks and bad taste in … Continue reading In Between Magic: Searching For Eurico Romaguera

The Unexpected Wasted Talent Movie Premier In Lagos

I was surfing the the point at Ponta Ruiva when my friend Mealha told me Chipa Wilson was going crazy in the beach break. I heard Wasted Talent mag crew was around so had my gear at the car. Caught a wave in, got my housing ready and went for a swim. Got to shoot … Continue reading The Unexpected Wasted Talent Movie Premier In Lagos

Orang Gudang

I love living in the Algarve, kook territory nowadays... I don´t get to shoot pro surfers that much. I really don´t care because I like to take pics of empty waves, seascapes, etc anyway, but it was allright to hang out with Marlon, Gony and specially guest Tanner Gudauskas for a change though. This guys … Continue reading Orang Gudang

Lourenço

Quick selection of photos from 2 days of unusual hurricane surf. We rarely get tropical storms in this parts, usually it is northwest swells, sometimes west. The last comparable one was recorded in 1851! Lorenzo was southwest/west, that is why it didn´t hit Nazare right. Down here was fantastic though, wedges, reefs and pointbreaks working … Continue reading Lourenço

Gliding Barnacles: Day Shift

The concert´s change of venue from Figueira da Foz to Cabedelo beach just made us surf more. Day and night, partying until 3/4/5 am. Most of the guys crashed here, in the vans,  tents, hangar, etc. Barbecues; small market including Gato Heroi´s shapes, shorts; Surf Brewing beers...  At taste of paradise. Or hell. This year´s … Continue reading Gliding Barnacles: Day Shift

Gliding Barnacles: The Night Shift

On the road to somewhere was this year´s Gliding Barnacles festival tag line. Got there a little later than usual, but just in time for the night shift. This edition had night surfing going on, one of the many creative ideas that architect Miguel Figueira puts down. I could hear Amy Hewton´s screams in the … Continue reading Gliding Barnacles: The Night Shift
