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.
The intro text was copied from Big Lebowski movie, one of my times favourite, but check this dudes style, totally legit!
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.
“A wiser fella once said, sometimes you eat the bar, and sometimes, well, the bar eats you.”
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.
Here is Maria, daughter of Joao Rosario, former portuguese spearfishing champion. Beware. She was into sailing, but started surfing full on an year ago. Its a blessing to have her big smile in the water.

Catched up with Lee Ann Curren once again. She had a great crew coming here this time: two skaters and a longboarder. I got to shoot her at Praia da Rocha and Arrifana, small and big surf, always super fun! Here´s a couple pics, check it out.
