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.
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.
Hash: We are making an article on this coast Brek!
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.
Got to shoot Pauline Ado for a couple of days down south, France was cold she said. She suffered a bit: first car acident, rocky dirt roads and empty scary pointbreaks. I am glad Remi, his boyfriend didnt punch me. Surf Girl says they want to publish the pics! Thanks Pedro João for the pics.
Got a litlle involved in this clip from OSK and I got to say I am pretty happy about the results. Serious cameraman work, great editing and a nice script resulted in a well sent message. As Alex said, it´s there and it´s growing (the surf scene). Check it out:
Sorry about the post title, but it´s one of my favourite cinema takes from the movie A Serious Man when the junior rabi tells something like: “you have to look with new eyes…”, etc. That´s what I am doing editing this ex b stuff I had on my hard drive. Looking at the parking lot.
