Getting The Shot

Me and Sebastian aka Salty frames planned to meet early at Cordoama´s Miradouro. From the top of this cliff we waited for the offshore to kick in. The swell was bigger than expected and breaking everywhere. It´s weird to look at waves from this height, but the spit coming out from a couple of gems … Continue reading Getting The Shot

Drive Thru: Chouriço Overdose

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

Broken Camera

In a way I am glad I broke this electronic beast. It has forced me to challenge my brain with this pastel thing I am doing. Maybe you don´t know, but I painted before I got into photography, mostly abstract and collage stuff. It´s amazing when you combine diferent skills. Having a blast. Even wrote … Continue reading Broken Camera

Met this punk last year at Ericeira, he comes from the east coast of the USA and has an unique style, wich is not very common nowadays. Love his boards paintjobs, crazy airs and careless attitude, specially surfing some slabs around Ericeira. The reason this kid is in this categorie (people who used to surf) is … Continue reading People Who Used to Surf: Brad Flora

Mazari By The Sea

A sunny day with the seductive Mazari in one of the most terrible March months in almost a century. Waves were tiny, but the light was beautiful and the temperature was mild here in the Algarve.
