It´s A Narrow Open Road: Part IV

Figueira da Foz is where I was born and my dearest place. Think I´ll never forget it´s long waves peeling off in the distance, one after the other as I walked back home from school at Rua do Pinhal.

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

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
