Enjoying the silly season in Praia da Rocha with top friend Mazari Zoio. Waves were small, but spirits were high. The trouble was rubbing your shoulders with the bathing tourists in front of you. Had a surf and then shot this talented lady. No leashes allowed!
My Vespa keys mystireously disapeared and reapeared after this session, hmm. Stranger than fiction…
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.

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).
Drove to Cordoama to shoot Gony Zubizarreta. It was his last day here and the waves were pumping. Took a few from top then… bang! Dropped my Nikon D800 to the ground. Kaput. I think the mount is f+cked, the images come out blurred. I am selling it for parts.
buddy marlon feeling it
hulk in heaven
Please help me to get another camera and do what I love again. You can buy me some prints (send me an email) or donate some money here:
A bit congested and not feeling that good, scored this rare bird yesterday. I wasn´t impressed, but the swell direction wasnt the best. Fishermen call it Sequeador, not Esquiador, thanks for the correction Nicolau!
They say Carwin Williams was the first to surf it, about 25 years ago. It´s got good fish and perceves. Went for a swim to try to get some water footage, but just got smashed. At least it helped my blocked nose.

give the man a cig
Surfed Ponta Ruiva afterwards and it sucked. Fortunatly met Mr. Agostinho who talked story and drank porto while i drank medronho. I had worse.

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!
