This is legendary Ivo Cação near my home town! I have been trying to get him back down here for ages. This time Zavial was the excuse, but it was almost flat. We scored Tonel today tough! Warm water and all, check it out!
The wonder kid was ripping in trunks, getting some nice barrels and airs. Marlon and Gony were on it too, they think Ivo is Bruno Aleixo, he is a funny cat that´s for sure and a hell of a surfer too!
Bruno is from Coimbra, near Figueira da Foz (Ivo´s birth place and mine). Same accent…
The tide was wrong and the wind sideshore, the banks weren´t perfect, but great waves runned across this point of Buarcos beautiful bay. It was the first day of Liga Meo Surf at Figueira da Foz and the boys were on it warming up for the event.
Check out this little slideshow of the action:

I was born here and lived in this cool street full of old taverns. Lunch time was at Tyrone, where I and Marlon had sardines for days (7 euros with wine and all).
A bit congested and not feeling that good, scored this rare bird yesterday. I wasn´t impressed, but the swell direction wasnt the best. Fishermen call it Sequeador, not Esquiador, thanks for the correction Nicolau!
They say Carwin Williams was the first to surf it, about 25 years ago. It´s got good fish and perceves. Went for a swim to try to get some water footage, but just got smashed. At least it helped my blocked nose.

Surfed Ponta Ruiva afterwards and it sucked. Fortunatly met Mr. Agostinho who talked story and drank porto while i drank medronho. I had worse.

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:
