I have been surfing this little wedge for 30 years now, sorry… Every now and then some small cats try to scrach my feathers. I hope I hold on a couple of more years. My friend Zé dos Cães went crazy, Xana is dead, it´s only me now… The crowd is getting out of hand.
Surfer magazine dudes called this the wedge, like newport beach, they said. The sand politicians dumped here made it longer, but fun. All kind of kooks surf it, sup it and bodyboard it. It´s too much sometimes.
It´s not a place, it´s a boy. He´s no saint, Martim is just a kid having fun in the southwestern tip of Europe. This was today´s session, small waves, rainy, but fun. You would have fun too if you were 17 right?
Martim Magalhães is a kid learning to surf with former portuguese top competitive surfer Francisco Canelas. This day I catched a ride with them to get some waves with my singlefin and aterwards shot this pics. Nice kid, super coach, fun waves and nice ass.
Stoked that my picture got elected Surf Portugal´s Mag cover of the year! It was shot in my birth city with my local friend Ivo Cação, we went for a session just in front of our backyard and got this magic hour action pic. Yes he pulled it off!
