Another epic festival in my birth place Figueira da Foz, Portugal. Beau Young, Lola Mignot, Jordan Spee… from America to Japan, good guys. Live music at the beach, free beer, barbecues, rocknroll and art at the garage… Djs. Everything. Checkout the pics:

Bumped into Diogo Appleton in the Gliding Barnacles festival in Figueira da Foz. A cool cat. This little waves finnaly rolled through Cabedelo. Tommorow´s forescast is looking good!

His style fitted perfectly into this event´s concept. Not really, just had to write something.

Stranger Than Friction

cross stepping between tourists

Enjoying the silly season in Praia da Rocha with top friend Mazari Zoio. Waves were small, but spirits were high. The trouble was rubbing your shoulders with the bathing tourists in front of you. Had a surf and then shot this talented lady. No leashes allowed!

 

My Vespa keys mystireously disapeared and reapeared after this session, hmm. Stranger than fiction…

Bad Call

_BRK7712

Way out north there was this fella I wanna tell ya about. Goes by the name of Eurico Romaguera. At least that was the handle his loving parents gave him, but he never had much use for it himself. See, this Romaguera, he called himself “Kiko”. Got a chance to shoot him logging around Sagres a couple of weeks ago, a cool cat.

We were tracking this mistery swell that never turned up… Super bad call, it had been pumping a couple of days ago. By the way he lost his wallet, checked the water temperature somking a cigarette and he was very selective with hot girls.

I think he meant the bear.

Fort of São João do Arade

By chance I happenned to bump into Manuel Dantas, Neorion skipper, in my home town Portimão. He is a keen longboarder so I have been showing him around. Never thought I would get this shot of him surfing this rare wave though.

Intresting I got him to surf this “wave” in front of Fort of Ferragudo. He is a history fanatic like me and has recommend me Martin Page and Rainer Daehnhardt.

Manuel is preparing another oceanic crossing so we will be in touch for a couple of days more. Who knows if I will join him too, hope I have the guts to leave my love.
