Surfers Wall: Kalani Lattanzi

Here is Kalani the newest addition to the Surfer Wall in the S. Miguel Arcanjo fortress in Nazaré. And my iconic pic of him duckdiving a monster wave below his fins. Crazy guy, but nice guy.

Magic

Leaving my hole a bit lately. I´ve been hanging out in Ericeira with the Magic Quiver crew in Ericeira, shooting rockstar Eurico Romaguera. Isolation can put a bullet in your head. The waves weren´t neither big or small, by the opposite... A bit crowded too. We had to search. Appleton gave us a hand and … Continue reading Magic

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 … Continue reading Sliding Society
