Stranger Than Friction

cross stepping between tourists

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…

Wave Solutions Water Housings

Finally my new housing from Wave Solutions Water Housings is ready. Thanks Nunito for the great job. It will used with a Nikon d810 and a 24mm or 85mm lens. Can´t wait to test it.

clean lines

I only ordered the shutter buton and the aperture wheel for it, but if I need I can ad butons on the back plate. That´s one of the advantages of buying this in Portugal, the other one is in case of repair, it´s much easier to send it to Ericeira than Australia, etc.

Don´t know about the color in case of loosing it in the surf, maybe a gopro on it with those red inflatables will help.

Nice To See You

hot day

This is legendary Ivo Cação near my home town! I have been trying to get him back down here for ages. This time Zavial was the excuse, but it was almost flat. We scored Tonel today tough! Warm water and all, check it out!

The wonder kid was ripping in trunks, getting some nice barrels and airs.  Marlon and Gony were on it too, they think Ivo is Bruno Aleixo, he is a funny cat that´s for sure and a  hell of a surfer too!

stoked

Bruno is from Coimbra, near Figueira da Foz (Ivo´s birth place and mine). Same accent…

Finally met Veronique from Casa Mae Lagos. It was a long day. I went to Carrapateira to harvest some perceves in the morning then shot Marlon Lipke surfing the biggest sueste in decades. Even stoped by Kisa to watch Joao Cabrita show!
