Buarcos Freesurf

The tide was wrong and the wind sideshore, the banks weren´t perfect, but great waves runned across this point of Buarcos beautiful bay. It was the first day of Liga Meo Surf at Figueira da Foz and the boys were on it warming up for the event.

I was born here and lived in this cool street full of old taverns. Lunch time was at Tyrone, where I and Marlon had sardines for days (7 euros with wine and all).

A kind of a surf friends gathering happened at Figueira da Foz this late August. It was supposed to be a competition in wich the best surf footage would win, but Gliding Barnicles was more about free loging and great rock roll concerts.
There were also art displays, a shape room, a bing surfboards stand and a second hand rockabilly market. The surf was super fun, reminding Trestles, by the way James Parry came along all from California, Michael Lay from England and Matteo Fabbri from Italy.
The long right hand points of Buarcos weren’t epic, but Cabedelo was super fun with great weather, friendly people and consistent surf. The boys were spoiled with sardines during lunch time and nouvelle cousins in the evening, cortesy of Casa Havanesa. At night Super Bocks were rolling at the event site, it was party time!
More stuff to come!
