Lagos, Algarve, a surf city that (almost) has no surf: Party, party, party, repeat. Take a ride to the nearby west coast and have a surf. Get smashed later that day and tell everybody how sick Cordoama was. Smell the absinthe. Get a tatoo saying Cheiras a Lagos. Dunno if it´s because this is the … Continue reading Buy The Ticket Take The Ride
Got a ride to Ericeira for this. Thing. Legend Joel Tudor likes weed, I heard. I also heard this was about style. Well, if I wasn´t there I wouldn´t believe it: the master drinking cheap beer...

Even wrote … Continue reading Broken Camera
Surf, eat, party, repeat, repeat, repeat. Catched a ride to my birth place Figueira da Foz (thanks Jerome) couldn´t miss this year´s Gliding Barnacles Festival. Time for T, The Parkinsons, some stylish loggers and cool people were gonna be there too, some too cool... Not to mention the barbecues, beer and wine, etc. Paul Mcneill … Continue reading What Does A Barnacle Do?
