Worked as a lifeguard here and met some cool people. I keep coming back, great vibes, great view. The infamous lagos beach bar parties are great too!

I prefer to surf at Praia da Rocha or Sagres, but Lagos has got some characters and some quite good surfers too…

Another epic festival in my birth place Figueira da Foz, Portugal. Beau Young, Lola Mignot, Jordan Spee… from America to Japan, good guys. Live music at the beach, free beer, barbecues, rocknroll and art at the garage… Djs. Everything. Checkout the pics:

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!

the winner takes it all

Spent this beautiful day among friends, waves and dogs. Maroln Lipke and Luca Guichard got 1st and 2nd. Amazing sunset. Nice Ice tea and watermelon. Good job with organizing this event Francisco Canelas!

 

 

The nortada finally stoped and we had fun waves all day. A bit crowded, but it´s summer…

a rare bird

Here is Elisa, had no idea she painted a couple of pictures I took in Indonesia some years ago. Phil Goodrich has painted one for me before, but this was such a nice surprise. It was good to leave Algarve and drive through Portugal, catching up with old friends like Miguel Ruivo (Elisa´s boyfriend), Tiago Oliveira, Eurico Gonçalves, etc.

cross stepping between tourists

Enjoying the silly season in Praia da Rocha with top friend Mazari Zoio. Waves were small, but spirits were high. The trouble was rubbing your shoulders with the bathing tourists in front of you. Had a surf and then shot this talented lady. No leashes allowed!

 

My Vespa keys mystireously disapeared and reapeared after this session, hmm. Stranger than fiction…
