Another epic festival in my birth place Figueira da Foz, Portugal. Beau Young, Lola Mignot, Jordan Spee… from America to Japan, good guys. Live music at the beach, free beer, barbecues, rocknroll and art at the garage… Djs. Everything. Checkout the pics:

“Life is trouble. Only death is not. To be alive is to undo your belt and *look* for trouble.” Zorba the Greek
Enjoying the silly season in Praia da Rocha with top friend Mazari Zoio. Waves were small, but spirits were high. The trouble was rubbing your shoulders with the bathing tourists in front of you. Had a surf and then shot this talented lady. No leashes allowed!
My Vespa keys mystireously disapeared and reapeared after this session, hmm. Stranger than fiction…
Way out north there was this fella I wanna tell ya about. Goes by the name of Eurico Romaguera. At least that was the handle his loving parents gave him, but he never had much use for it himself. See, this Romaguera, he called himself “Kiko”. Got a chance to shoot him logging around Sagres a couple of weeks ago, a cool cat.
The intro text was copied from Big Lebowski movie, one of my times favourite, but check this dudes style, totally legit!
We were tracking this mistery swell that never turned up… Super bad call, it had been pumping a couple of days ago. By the way he lost his wallet, checked the water temperature somking a cigarette and he was very selective with hot girls.
“A wiser fella once said, sometimes you eat the bar, and sometimes, well, the bar eats you.”
GB is a display of classic longboard surf by guests and registered participants, accompanied by cultural performances and DJs. Tonight D3O & FRIENDS will be performing at Auto Peninsular, check it out!
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!
