Drove up to Ericeira for a couple of days to see some old friends. The waves pumped and I took a few photos between havesting perceves. Happens that one pic of Tiago Pires came out nice, maybe because of the low perspective or the 50mm lens. It was chosen for Surfer magazine behind the lens, check it out!
And here is Eurico Romagura aka Kiko, the first of this new serie. Kiko is a great surfer from Coimbra, Portugal. A MS surfboards and Rythm rider and nice looking too. He´s off to Bali soon to the Deus Ex Machina Fest, check him out!
Uploaded a video about the 2016 Peniche Pro and big swell at Nazare during the same period. It was all shot with a Sony RX10 iii I am currently selling. It shoots 4k and 240 fps at full hd, check it out!
Paulo dos Pardais aka Paulan was one of the surf pioneers in the Algarve. He sailed the seven seas and was great diver, a true waterman you can say. He opened the first surfshop in Portimão having my uncle António Cândido as a finance backup. He´s still a businessman having Malibu pro runners store and running Algarve Selvagem tours. Check out this pics from his golden years!

Slep in Carrapateira to watch Doris show. Glad it wasn´t Hercules otherwise our vans would have been trashed really bad. We slep by the rivermouth, not a sensible thing to do… The sky had stars and the temperature was mild, didn´t sleep much thinking about Doris, sorry Bianca.
Woke up at 6:30 and headed to Pias Baixas. The swell was massive, but nothing compared to the Hercules 3 years ago and the 2003 one.
It was stil nice to hear the waves pounding the barnacles during the night. The south coast had some waves, but the winds were bad, wen´t to Chinicato for lunch and then a well deserved nap.
