Worked as a lifeguard here and met some cool people. I keep coming back, great vibes, great view. The infamous lagos beach bar parties are great too!

I prefer to surf at Praia da Rocha or Sagres, but Lagos has got some characters and some quite good surfers too…

Sequeador: I Have Had Worse

A bit congested and not feeling that good, scored this rare bird yesterday. I wasn´t impressed, but the swell direction wasnt the best. Fishermen call it Sequeador, not Esquiador, thanks for the correction Nicolau!

ski time

They say Carwin Williams was the first to surf it, about 25 years ago. It´s got good fish and perceves. Went for a swim to try to get some water footage, but just got smashed. At least it helped my blocked nose.

Surfed Ponta Ruiva afterwards and it sucked. Fortunatly met Mr. Agostinho who talked story and drank porto while i drank medronho. I had worse.

this is for you hash

Waited for the rockstars to show up for hours, waves was shit. The gods around here have this sense of humor, Zavial had been pumping a few days ago… Hash works for this big americano mag you know, was with this hot surfer and all and I was willing to show him around.

stranger

This stranger told me: “Arrifana is nice Dude!” I thought it was too big, too onshore, too empty. Ok. The dude abides. Let´s go Sebastian (my german photographer mate)!

Ahaha! Waves were fun! Leon was catching a ton of them, Marlon, Gony… The gringos! We hunged out, etc. Real cool dudes. It´s a shame I let go of my boar. It ended up in the bars in Lagos where I pitched my story.
