Doris

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.

just look at the parking lot larry

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.

nice shot

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.

Fishermen

Have you ever thought of this? We are relaxing waiting for set waves and this guys are hustling to catch a sargo, robalo or dourada. They need to pay for gas, bait and hopefully sell some, at least feed their family…

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.

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.

buona sera

Brek: How long have you been surfing?

Massimo: I am 32 already, I surfed since i was 19 off and on. I was passing winters
in Tenerife and some surf trips to Portugal and Fuerteventura…

Brek:  Do you remmember your first good ride?

Massimo: Absolutely I was at the Forte dei Marmi peer with a bic 7.2 I had to drive
25 min with the scooter to get there….It was a green tiny right and I remember i was
looking backwards all the way to be sure that was a green wave, I was really not
sure what I was doing.

Brek: What´s your regular spot?

Massimo: Cordoama is where i Surf most but i move a lot along the southwest and
west coast.

Brek: What type of surfboard do you ride?

Massimo: Eeeeeh……. Depends a lot from the conditions when I arrived in June one
and half year ago, I was surfing only a 9.0 longboard then after the summer I saw
the conditions and I decided to get back to smaller boards, I got a single fin 6.0 now is dead… At the moment i have 1 twin, 1 single, 1 truster and 1 longboard, it´s fun to change.

Brek: Have you had any trouble in the water?

Massimo: Just once in Ponta Ruiva ,I had an unfriendly chat with a guy that lives
here, haven’t meet him yet- I am sure is fine was nothing really hardcore, sometimes it
can happen i get a lot of waves and people get pissed.
