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!
Slep in Carrapateira to watch Doris show. Glad it wasn´t Hercules otherwise our vans would have been trashed really bad. We slep by the rivermouth, not a sensible thing to do… The sky had stars and the temperature was mild, didn´t sleep much thinking about Doris, sorry Bianca.
Woke up at 6:30 and headed to Pias Baixas. The swell was massive, but nothing compared to the Hercules 3 years ago and the 2003 one.
It was stil nice to hear the waves pounding the barnacles during the night. The south coast had some waves, but the winds were bad, wen´t to Chinicato for lunch and then a well deserved nap.
