And here is… can´t remember her name, sorry. Let´s call her Uug. I met her climbing in Sagres. I like this portrait of her. It was inspired by Chris Buck.

Random Surfers: Johny Cabrita

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.

when you are friends with alex botelho you are cool
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.

not meia praia…
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!

morey eel sandwich
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!

People Who Don´t Surf

And here is Marquinho, a dude I know for a long time. Hes not a surfer, but a true waterman, always fishing at ilheu redondo, a small island in the Ingleses, the point of Carrapateira.

happy after a good catch of sargos

Marco needs to padle quite a while to get to his rock nowadays. The harbour where fishermen had their boats got destroyed some years ago.

a bit of climbing…

Its still a simple life in this parts, specially in this cold winter days. I am sure we wouldnt change this place for any in the world.
