It´s been a while since I do this calendars, probably 6 years now, skipped last year though (beer septicemia)... This year I am making them right and they are going to arrive in time for sure. Still fixing colors in a couple, but I think it is looking great already. I want to make 2020, … Continue reading 2020 Calendar
Life is short. Thought it was time to go for a spin. The swell looked massive, maybe too big for Ericeira and too west for Nazare, but decided to roll the dice with my friend Sebastian Salty Frames anyway. Stoped in Alentejo to have a cofee and buy some bread and local chouriço. Stayed with … Continue reading Drive Thru: Chouriço Overdose
In the ultra modern age of the 21st century plates are square or even triangular. To be honest, I am pretty conservative when it comes to food, it´s not that I am against brazillian wax, but gourmet, design and sushi... Anyway, found inspiration for my Pacific Longboarder magazine piece in this old plate of mine, check … Continue reading Print Is Not Dead: Pacific Longboarder
Here is Kalani the newest addition to the Surfer Wall in the S. Miguel Arcanjo fortress in Nazaré. And my iconic pic of him duckdiving a monster wave below his fins. Crazy guy, but nice guy.

Went up to Nazaré one more time for the Capitulo Perfeito. It´s a contest where the barrel is suposed to be the king manouver. It´s kind of hard in pratice to run a competition like that... My "neighboors" Marlon Lipke and Alex Botelho didn´t adapt to the conditions and got out soon. The organization did … Continue reading Perfect Chapter?
While Macnamara and cia were motoring their way into some bombs last monday at Praia do Norte Kalani Lattanzi was out on a body board. He lost the board, tried to find it and eventually gave up, I think, and went bodysurfing for at least one hour. Surfing magazine runned a piece on him, … Continue reading Bodysurfing Huge Nazaré With Kalani
Check out my new calendar folks. It´s a mix of recent emotions, places and people I met. I am super grateful of being a photographer, it´s super fun! Enjoy it. Unboxing...
A Red Bull marketing guy asked me if there were diferent perspectives yet to be taken at Nazaré as we had dinner the night before two Billabong XLL big wave awards were set. I said sure. Everybody on the cliff was looking at me and my dolls in a weird way the next day. Sometimes … Continue reading Happy Ending: Perspective Making Of
