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!

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!

Crowd 9

I have been surfing this little wedge for 30 years now, sorry… Every now and then some small cats try to scrach my feathers. I hope I hold on a couple of more years. My friend Zé dos Cães went crazy, Xana is dead, it´s only me now… The crowd is getting out of hand.

Surfer magazine dudes called this the wedge, like newport beach, they said. The sand politicians dumped here made it longer, but fun. All kind of kooks surf it, sup it and bodyboard it. It´s too much sometimes.
