I prefer to surf at Praia da Rocha or Sagres, but Lagos has got some characters and some quite good surfers too…

Finally met Veronique from Casa Mae Lagos. It was a long day. I went to Carrapateira to harvest some perceves in the morning then shot Marlon Lipke surfing the biggest sueste in decades. Even stoped by Kisa to watch Joao Cabrita show!

Waited for the rockstars to show up for hours, waves was shit. The gods around here have this sense of humor, Zavial had been pumping a few days ago… Hash works for this big americano mag you know, was with this hot surfer and all and I was willing to show him around.

stranger

This stranger told me: “Arrifana is nice Dude!” I thought it was too big, too onshore, too empty. Ok. The dude abides. Let´s go Sebastian (my german photographer mate)!

Ahaha! Waves were fun! Leon was catching a ton of them, Marlon, Gony… The gringos! We hunged out, etc. Real cool dudes. It´s a shame I let go of my boar. It ended up in the bars in Lagos where I pitched my story.

People Who Used To Surf: Paulo dos Pardais

Paulo dos Pardais aka Paulan was one of the surf pioneers in the Algarve. He sailed the seven seas and was great diver, a true waterman you can say. He opened the first surfshop in Portimão having my uncle António Cândido as a finance backup. He´s still a businessman having Malibu pro runners store and running Algarve Selvagem tours. Check out this pics from his golden years!

LX: Phantom 4 pro

I am joking again! Who needs a drone? Shot this pics of Lisbon from the window of the airplane I catched in Madeira island. Way cheaper! The down side is that when it crashes you go down with it.
