Nice To See You

hot day

This is legendary Ivo Cação near my home town! I have been trying to get him back down here for ages. This time Zavial was the excuse, but it was almost flat. We scored Tonel today tough! Warm water and all, check it out!

The wonder kid was ripping in trunks, getting some nice barrels and airs.  Marlon and Gony were on it too, they think Ivo is Bruno Aleixo, he is a funny cat that´s for sure and a  hell of a surfer too!

stoked

Bruno is from Coimbra, near Figueira da Foz (Ivo´s birth place and mine). Same accent…

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.

early morning check

Check out this little slideshow of the action:

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).
