Finally met Veronique from Casa Mae Lagos. It was a long day. I went to Carrapateira to harvest some perceves in the morning then shot Marlon Lipke surfing the biggest sueste in decades. Even stoped by Kisa to watch Joao Cabrita show!

my wave

I have been surfing this little wedge for 30 years now, sorry… Every now and then some small cats try to scrtach my feathers. I hope I hold on a couple of more years. My friend Zé dos Cães went crazy, Xana is dead, it´s only me now. The crowd is getting out of hand.

pico do molhe

Surfer magazine dudes called this the wedge, like newport beach. The sand politicians droped for years made it longer, but fun. All kind of kooks surf it, sup it and bodyboard it. It´s disgusting.

Spent a couple days in Ericeira for the best swell of the season. Here´s some random pics of trip, plus a video, plus the epic diner at Tasca da Boa Viagem.

Marlon & Alves Score Huge Tonel

BRK_1717

We drove to Sagres on the south coast of Portugal. The swell was west, solid, masses of water moving caressed by an offshore breeze. The tide was super low, just perfect conditions. Marlon Lipke and Francisco “Chico” Alves were on it and catched a few beautiful beasts until they got smashed and broke their boards.

Then it was off to Beliche to find some ramps.

Happy fools day guys!
