Fishermen

Have you ever thought of this? We are relaxing waiting for set waves and this guys are hustling to catch a sargo, robalo or dourada. They need to pay for gas, bait and hopefully sell some, at least feed their family…

People Who Don´t Surf

And here is Marquinho, a dude I know for a long time. Hes not a surfer, but a true waterman, always fishing at ilheu redondo, a small island in the Ingleses, the point of Carrapateira.

happy after a good catch of sargos

Marco needs to padle quite a while to get to his rock nowadays. The harbour where fishermen had their boats got destroyed some years ago.

Its still a simple life in this parts, specially in this cold winter days. I am sure we wouldnt change this place for any in the world.

Massimo: I am 32 already, I surfed since i was 19 off and on. I was passing winters
in Tenerife and some surf trips to Portugal and Fuerteventura…

Brek:  Do you remmember your first good ride?

Massimo: Absolutely I was at the Forte dei Marmi peer with a bic 7.2 I had to drive
25 min with the scooter to get there….It was a green tiny right and I remember i was
looking backwards all the way to be sure that was a green wave, I was really not
sure what I was doing.

Brek: What´s your regular spot?

west coast.

Brek: What type of surfboard do you ride?

Massimo: Eeeeeh……. Depends a lot from the conditions when I arrived in June one
and half year ago, I was surfing only a 9.0 longboard then after the summer I saw
the conditions and I decided to get back to smaller boards, I got a single fin 6.0 now is dead… At the moment i have 1 twin, 1 single, 1 truster and 1 longboard, it´s fun to change.

Brek: Have you had any trouble in the water?

Massimo: Just once in Ponta Ruiva ,I had an unfriendly chat with a guy that lives
here, haven’t meet him yet- I am sure is fine was nothing really hardcore, sometimes it
can happen i get a lot of waves and people get pissed.
