I shoot events too. It´s not because of the money, I like people. This time I did this photos for my friend João Luis Soares 50th birthday. It was a fantastic soiré with lots of smiles, here are some of the pics I took, check it out:
Waited for the rockstars to show up for hours, waves was shit. The gods around here have this sense of humor, Zavial had been pumping a few days ago… Hash works for this big americano mag you know, was with this hot surfer and all and I was willing to show him around.
This stranger told me: “Arrifana is nice Dude!” I thought it was too big, too onshore, too empty. Ok. The dude abides. Let´s go Sebastian (my german photographer mate)!
Ahaha! Waves were fun! Leon was catching a ton of them, Marlon, Gony… The gringos! We hunged out, etc. Real cool dudes. It´s a shame I let go of my boar. It ended up in the bars in Lagos where I pitched my story.
Hash: We are making an article on this coast Brek!
And here is Eurico Romagura aka Kiko, the first of this new serie. Kiko is a great surfer from Coimbra, Portugal. A MS surfboards and Rythm rider and nice looking too. He´s off to Bali soon to the Deus Ex Machina Fest, check him out!
Its still possible to find it here. Almost no surf schools at the beach this time of the year, a lot of kooks everywhere, but thats part of the game I guess. More and more northern europeans buying properties here, prices going up. Expats, hippies…
Despite the tourism reaching this once desolated part of Portugal at least the country is still country.

Stressed, ate and drank too much, got busted by the police sleeping in the car at Zavial twice, but ended up hanging out with Lee Ann again. Marlon and Luca turned up too, it was a great family show, almost.
Here are the shots of the mini 1 and a half day long trip to Sagres. My head aches…
