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.”
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).
It´s always nice to see your photos on paper, either it´s on a wall or on a magazine. Thanks Surf Session for somehow surviving this new times and Lee Ann for turning up!

The second slideshow of Por Detrás das Lentes at Kisa Real Italian Food was from photographer João Cabrita. Another sucess with lots of visitors in a laid back atmosphere in the center of Lagos, Algarve.
Next one will be friday 28th of April at 7H. Don´t miss the street photography of my mate André Silva.
I don´t eat pizza´s or pasta, but the anti pasta is yummi!
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:
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!
