Algarve is nice. The sweetest weather you can have. When it rains you still can find a window to surf. In Sagres it can be harsh though. Yesterday I slept there with thunder storms and really cold. Half an hour drive to the east and it can be hot…
Cientists say it´s a mixture of complex micro climates. I like it, keeps me on my feet. There are all sorts of waves too: from ground swells from the north to windswells from Gibraltar we got it all.
Storm surf in the Algarve means sheltered bays and fun surf. This time I didn´t surf, too much rain and bacteria floating around. Checked Alemão and waited for Marlon Lipke to turn up and eventually made some photos of the boys, check it out!
Love this colors, the only place I have been that is close to this is Bali, but it´s now destroyed, anyway. The Algarve is mostly a golf retreat in the winter, only the odd kook foreign surfer here and there…
Sagres is ok, but I love my city. It´s the shopping malls!

Your mother is putting your wetsuit on, your father is carrying your board, it´s 1 foot onshore, but you got to go, it´s competition day. You need that pic for the facebook… Go straight to hell boy. Go straight to hell boy! Circuito Regional de Surf do Sul 2016 parody.
Gony and a couple of Canary kids showed up at our place last week. Strong offshore and nice banks made some really fun sessions. Marlon, Alex, Mouzinho and the Guichard bros eventually were there to show them the ropes. I just had to click.
The swell eventually came up with the rising tide.
Nothing epic, but I might use a pic for my upcoming book Trippin Down South.
After a while mastering composition, deph of field and other technical details decided to get in in the water with my fisheye setup. The waves weren´t that great, but it felt good to get worked out. Maybe a good training for the offshore days ahead, the clouds were epic though. Check it out!
Endless surf around this parts with new sand banks and unexpected waves. This time with Marlon, Miguel and Melvin. The best shot was Melvin´s unfortunatly can´t show you yet, maybe some mag cover soon.
