Russel Brek

There should be a comma in the title. I wouldn´t mind the name Russel though, kiwi Russel Crow is a cool bloke and this kid... what a bout Russel Bierke? Maybe the most talked surfer of the moment, right? His clip FLOWSTATE is setting the surf world on fire, for sure! Well, I met him not … Continue reading Russel Brek

Crème De La Crème

I started logging some years ago after I saw Gato Heroi surfing at the Salinas Longboard festival, back in the day. It was not easy for me to make the transition after 3 decades of carving on little thrusters. I was only riding single fins at the end, but still I struggled. The finesse needed … Continue reading Crème De La Crème

The Unexpected Wasted Talent Movie Premier In Lagos

I was surfing the the point at Ponta Ruiva when my friend Mealha told me Chipa Wilson was going crazy in the beach break. I heard Wasted Talent mag crew was around so had my gear at the car. Caught a wave in, got my housing ready and went for a swim. Got to shoot … Continue reading The Unexpected Wasted Talent Movie Premier In Lagos

Orang Gudang

I love living in the Algarve, kook territory nowadays... I don´t get to shoot pro surfers that much. I really don´t care because I like to take pics of empty waves, seascapes, etc anyway, but it was allright to hang out with Marlon, Gony and specially guest Tanner Gudauskas for a change though. This guys … Continue reading Orang Gudang

Gliding Barnacles: The Night Shift

On the road to somewhere was this year´s Gliding Barnacles festival tag line. Got there a little later than usual, but just in time for the night shift. This edition had night surfing going on, one of the many creative ideas that architect Miguel Figueira puts down. I could hear Amy Hewton´s screams in the … Continue reading Gliding Barnacles: The Night Shift

It´s A Narrow Open Road: Part I

Usually before a ride like this you would pack everything and go to bed early. I thought I was smarter and had a blast saying goodbye to Portimão: beer, red wine, gin tonic a bifana and more beer to top it off. Felt great about leaving this dump and had to celebrate. I had planned … Continue reading It´s A Narrow Open Road: Part I

Buy The Ticket Take The Ride

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

Duct Tape Invitational: Portugal

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... Waffles and hotdogs as food!? No wonder the winners were "not so stylish" competitive surfers. Thank God awesome surfers … Continue reading Duct Tape Invitational: Portugal
