Spent some time with the Balsemão family a couple of moons ago. Concha wants to be a pro surfer and her dad is keen on helping her. This was a quick session after school. The waves kind sucked, but the extreme weather was kind of cool, kind of.

daddy cool

Actually the swell was pretty big this day and from southwest. This spot rarely has any waves at all. It´s much more famous for windsurfing in flat water, slalom. It´s not far from Carrapateira where they are based.

Check out their familiy business, it´s a thing for vegans, animal lovers, etc called Monte Velho Eco Retreats. I recommend horse riding along the coast. I am not into yoga…


Good luck kid!
