I was surfing the the point at Ponta Ruiva when my friend Mealha told me Chipa Wilson was going crazy in the beach break. I heard Wasted Talent mag crew was around so had my gear at the car. Caught a wave in, got my housing ready and went for a swim. Got to shoot … Continue reading The Unexpected Wasted Talent Movie Premier In Lagos
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
Spent this beautiful day among friends, waves and dogs. Maroln Lipke and Luca Guichard got 1st and 2nd. Amazing sunset. Nice Ice tea and watermelon. Good job with organizing this event Francisco Canelas! The nortada finally stoped and we had fun waves all day. A bit crowded, but it´s summer... “No more stupid … Continue reading Open Vale Figueiras

Rain squalls and burgers could be the title of this post. Chasing pro surfers is weird enough... Woke up at Sagres came back home, off to Aljezur, raining, raining. Shit. Somewhere over the rainbow there were some pots of gold as usual. Alex Botelho and Ivo Santos were on it. I will be on it … Continue reading Marlon Puppy: Can’t You Take a Joke ?
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 … Continue reading Perfect Chapter?
Catched up with Lee Ann Curren once again. She had a great crew coming here this time: two skaters and a longboarder. I got to shoot her at Praia da Rocha and Arrifana, small and big surf, always super fun! Here´s a couple pics, check it out.
