Buy The Ticket Take The Ride

Lagos, Algarve, a surf city that (almost) has no surf: Party, party, party, repeat. Take a ride to the nearby west coast and have a surf. Get smashed later that day and tell everybody how sick Cordoama was. Smell the absinthe. Get a tatoo saying Cheiras a Lagos. Dunno if it´s because this is the … Continue reading Buy The Ticket Take The Ride

Duct Tape Invitational: Portugal

Got a ride to Ericeira for this. Thing. Legend Joel Tudor likes weed, I heard. I also heard this was about style. Well, if I wasn´t there I wouldn´t believe it: the master drinking cheap beer... Waffles and hotdogs as food!? No wonder the winners were "not so stylish" competitive surfers. Thank God awesome surfers … Continue reading Duct Tape Invitational: Portugal

Getting The Shot

Me and Sebastian aka Salty frames planned to meet early at Cordoama´s Miradouro. From the top of this cliff we waited for the offshore to kick in. The swell was bigger than expected and breaking everywhere. It´s weird to look at waves from this height, but the spit coming out from a couple of gems … Continue reading Getting The Shot

Drive Thru: Chouriço Overdose

Life is short. Thought it was time to go for a spin. The swell looked massive, maybe too big for Ericeira and too west for Nazare, but decided to roll the dice with my friend Sebastian Salty Frames anyway. Stoped in Alentejo to have a cofee and buy some bread and local chouriço. Stayed with … Continue reading Drive Thru: Chouriço Overdose

Broken Camera II

Broke my camera again. It was a while ago and this time didn´t have the guts to make another crowdfunding, my mistake... Started painting my pics while it was being repaired instead. Did this little exhibition and all at A Travessa restaurant. Thanks for the friends and family that turned up and António for the … Continue reading Broken Camera II

Broken Camera

In a way I am glad I broke this electronic beast. It has forced me to challenge my brain with this pastel thing I am doing. Maybe you don´t know, but I painted before I got into photography, mostly abstract and collage stuff. It´s amazing when you combine diferent skills. Having a blast. Even wrote … Continue reading Broken Camera

People Who Used to Surf: Brad Flora

Met this punk last year at Ericeira, he comes from the east coast of the USA and has an unique style, wich is not very common nowadays. Love his boards paintjobs, crazy airs and careless attitude, specially surfing some slabs around Ericeira. The reason this kid is in this categorie (people who used to surf) is … Continue reading People Who Used to Surf: Brad Flora

Mazari By The Sea

A sunny day with the seductive Mazari in one of the most terrible March months in almost a century. Waves were tiny, but the light was beautiful and the temperature was mild here in the Algarve. She got her 5mm wetsuit on, but I wished she had taken the bikini. Even with this rigorous winters I am … Continue reading Mazari By The Sea

Boy Toys

Me and my mate Jerome just got some new surfboards from The Retro Movement shaped by the charismatic Dan Costa! Both are 7'2 and were inspired by a Devon Howard stick. Check out what he has to say about eggs on Surf Splendor Podcast.     https://youtu.be/Z-tOYq1W034 One of my favourite aspects in surfing has … Continue reading Boy Toys
