Once an aussie told me: Mate, you don´t need to travel, you are from portuguese. That was a long time ago, before Macnamara and the Peniche Pro. Occasionally I might drive to Salinas or Hossegor and I can also hop on an airplane and go the the Azores, Madeira or the Cannary islands, Morroco… But just in Portugal I can shoot huge waves in Nazaré, perfect reef breaks in Ericeira and hollow beach breaks in Peniche, not to mention where I live, down south! Here´s some photos I have taken around this parts.

So many options. Need to face the cold and go to Ireland and Norway soon though…
