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. I love Algarve, where I live, the short winters and beautiful weather make me feel like … Continue reading It´s A Narrow Open Road: Part IV

It´s A Narrow Open Road: Part III

Upwards over the mountain, Sintra mountain. As I expected the wind kind of stopped up here. Thought about checking Praia Grande, rang monster tube hunter Nic von Rupp, but he didn´t anwser. No reception inside Indo tubes... Time to enjoy my country´s feelings. Lost myself again and ended up at Magoito beach. Just how I … Continue reading It´s A Narrow Open Road: Part III

It´s A Narrow Open Road: Part II

Get lost!!! Welcome to the dark side of the moon. This 100 km … Continue reading It´s A Narrow Open Road: Part II

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

This time … Continue reading Brendon Has Just Left The Building

The waves weren´t neither big or small, by the opposite... A bit crowded too. We had to search. Appleton gave us a hand and … Continue reading Magic

No Peniche Closeouts Here

Portugal waves have been heavily criticized, first it was Nazaré and now it´s Peniche´s Supertubos... Well, I didnt got either places, the name of the game here is variety! I stucked to Sagres and Ericeira as you probably know from Stab magazine. Here´s some photos of my Meo Rip Curl Peniche Pro week: And there … Continue reading No Peniche Closeouts Here
