There´s A Big Dilema About The Big Storm Emma

Emma was mixing pleasure with pain yesterday. The surfers were happy, at least the ones who don´t have beach businesses... Waves everywhere, including inside Portimão harbour. Portuguese Kai Lenny Arnaud Dussen was on it as well as Portimão Surf Club actual president Francisco Canelas. The policia maritima kicked the boys out of the water, but … Continue reading There´s A Big Dilema About The Big Storm Emma

This time … Continue reading Brendon Has Just Left The Building


Leaving my hole a bit lately. I´ve been hanging out in Ericeira with the Magic Quiver crew in Ericeira, shooting rockstar Eurico Romaguera. Isolation can put a bullet in your head.
