This year´s … Continue reading Gliding Barnacles: Day Shift

Gliding Barnacles: The Night Shift

On the road to somewhere was this year´s Gliding Barnacles festival tag line. Got there a little later than usual, but just in time for the night shift. This edition had night surfing going on, one of the many creative ideas that architect Miguel Figueira puts down. I could hear Amy Hewton´s screams in the … Continue reading Gliding Barnacles: The Night Shift

It´s A Narrow Open Road: Part IV

Figueira da Foz is where I was born and my dearest place. Think I´ll never forget it´s long waves peeling off in the distance, one after the other as I walked back home from school at Rua do Pinhal. I love Algarve, where I live, the short winters and beautiful weather make me feel like … Continue reading It´s A Narrow Open Road: Part IV

Print Is Not Dead: Pacific Longboarder

In the ultra modern age of the 21st century plates are square or even triangular. To be honest, I am pretty conservative when it comes to food, it´s not that I am against brazillian wax, but gourmet, design and sushi... Anyway, found inspiration for my Pacific Longboarder magazine piece in this old plate of mine, check … Continue reading Print Is Not Dead: Pacific Longboarder

Perceves Deslizantes

Another epic festival in my birth place Figueira da Foz, Portugal. Beau Young, Lola Mignot, Jordan Spee... from America to Japan, good guys.

To be alive is to undo … Continue reading Perceves Deslizantes

It was the first day of Liga Meo Surf at Figueira da Foz and the boys were on it warming up for the event. Check out this little slideshow of the action: … Continue reading Buarcos Freesurf
