Super proud of my dear friend Loïc Wirth doing this great imagery! I met him here in the Algarve a few years ago, he´s a Sagres fanatic like me. Last year he brought a big crew to film at the southwestern tip of europe, but the ocean went flat…
Check his new movie trailer, this guy is getting better and better!
Spread the love guys!
“O invisível aos olhos
Por estar dentro de onde existir amor
Obrigado por nos ensinar a voar…”
Went up to Nazaré one more time for the Capitulo Perfeito. It´s a contest where the barrel is suposed to be the king manouver. It´s kind of hard in pratice to run a competition like that…
My “neighboors” Marlon Lipke and Alex Botelho didn´t adapt to the conditions and got out soon. The organization did a great job, but the waves weren´t big, barreling or ripable… Me boys got lost in the line up looking for barreling waves that mushed out.
Alex didn´t know what to do, specially after surfing this place in the 15 to 20 foot range last week, Marlon on the other hand carved his way into defeat in style. Bummer, check this clip of my brief return to the new meca of Portugal´s surfing!
Super session here down south mates! Vasco, Yannick and Marlon lit it up here in the sunshine coast of the Algarve. Hotter than July dudes! Yannick´s wim hof´s pratices (or girlfriend)kept him late, but was shredding has usual.
For those who don´t understand shit about portuguese, this guy Eurico Gonçalves has been travelling the world with his mate award winning arquitect Miguel Figueira trying to save waves. I recently catched up with them here in the beautiful Algarve during a seminar they were invited to and spent some quality time with my family and shared some nice waves with this guys too. Check their thing here: SOS Cabedelo.
Travelling in the barrel with my mates hooting from the channel brough me back the joy of surfing. This trip has been a game change for me, sick of professional surfing, spoiled kids, etc. I still enjoy shooting guys charging, but I think am going back to the roots. Can´t wait to get a classic surfboard under my feet.
Thanks Gonçalo Ruivo from Mikumba Fish Boat, Twothirds, FCS, Gilles Vieira for lending me his Surfboard and Sujud for filming me.
