Finally my new housing from Wave Solutions Water Housings is ready. Thanks Nunito for the great job. It will used with a Nikon d810 and a 24mm or 85mm lens. Can´t wait to test it.
I only ordered the shutter buton and the aperture wheel for it, but if I need I can ad butons on the back plate. That´s one of the advantages of buying this in Portugal, the other one is in case of repair, it´s much easier to send it to Ericeira than Australia, etc.
Don´t know about the color in case of loosing it in the surf, maybe a gopro on it with those red inflatables will help.
Marlon and Melvin Lipke organized this little cerimony to hand me my new friend funded Nikon D810 camera at Mellow loco Bar in Lagos! Super stocked to be able to continue document our oceans moods, etc. Thankyou so much guys.
Every shutter auctuation made with this camera will be yours too. I promise I won´t drop it anymore!

I am really toutched by the gestures friends from all over have been giving me. From donations to just feeling my pain it´s been awsome. I am trying to raise 2k to replace my broken Nikon d800. Selling prints…
It´s 25€ for 30x20cm, 50€ for 40x30cm and 100€ for 100x70cm.
Thanks for helping me out Marlon Lipke, Gony Zubizarreta, Alain Vacheron, Al Mackinon, Pablo Martínez, Francesca Perini, Nic von Rupp, Álvaro Costa, Diogo D´orey, Sebastian, Antonio Renteria, Nuno Cardoso, etc.

Drove to Cordoama to shoot Gony Zubizarreta. It was his last day here and the waves were pumping. Took a few from top then… bang! Dropped my Nikon D800 to the ground. Kaput. I think the mount is f+cked, the images come out blurred. I am selling it for parts.
hulk in heaven
buddy marlon feeling it
Please help me to get another camera and do what I love again. You can buy me some prints (send me an email) or donate some money here:
Drove up to Ericeira for a couple of days to see some old friends. The waves pumped and I took a few photos between havesting perceves. Happens that one pic of Tiago Pires came out nice, maybe because of the low perspective or the 50mm lens. It was chosen for Surfer magazine behind the lens, check it out!
And here is João Cabrita, a lagobrigense small fella with a big heart. He´s been travelling a bit around the globe, but I had to translate this… He bought a camera similar to mine in Australia recently, we have the love of photography in common . Mate Craig Anderson was here yesterday allright, but Cabrita is a cool cat too, check him out.
Brek: How long have you been surfing?
Cabrita: I started surfing at age 12, i already surf for 16 years, uhh it seems a lot already.
Brek: Do you remember your first good ride?
Cabrita: Yes it was a kamikaze flowter on the Praia do Amado, and at the time I remember it being my first attempt at maneuvering and my friends used to play around with it.
Brek: What is your regular spot?
Cabrita: My spot is from Meia Praia to Aljezur, but where I feel right at home is at Meia Praia surfing with my friends and neighbors.
Brek: Have you had any trouble in the water?
Cabrita: Yes some, but nothing special. Sometimes it is difficult to live in a place with so much tourism, there is no order in the water, but nothing that an educated conversation does not solve. The worst sometimes is the other local surfers … ihihi
Brek: Where was your last epic session?
Cabrita: My last epic session? Hummm I do not know, the epic for me comes from inside. Being happy, smile and feel good, either if I am just flowing, barreling or doing turns.
Brek: What’s your favourite food?
Cabrita: My favorite food is Portuguese food, I can not choose, but maybe a bean soup from my grandmother Ilda’s with black pudding and chouriça inside…Good to fart. And sandes de moreia!
Brek: What else should we know about you?
Cabrita: I’m an ambassador of Pura Vida.
Brek: Any message you want to leave here?
Cabrita: Be Happy!
