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.

pico do molhe

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.

Random Surfers: Pedro João

And here we have Pedro João aka Sherpa a Physical Education Teacher that started surfing at age 43. It´s impressive the wave count he gets every session, I have seen him catch 7 waves in less than 2 minutes! He played soccer, volley ball and did some climbing, maybe that explains something. Always a cool character in the water and funny as hell.

Radio Camping

 

Catched up with Lee Ann Curren once again. She had a great crew coming here this time: two skaters and a longboarder. I got to shoot her at Praia da Rocha and Arrifana, small and big surf, always super fun! Here´s a couple pics, check it out.

Having Fun On My Singlefin

Had the luck to have friend Tó Mané take this pictures of me the last weekend. It was during the GShock event at my home break, it´s sponsored by Surfterra, a photo platform you should check out.

This is me on my trusty Retro Movement 6´1 singlefin. A bit hard to turn, but fast as hell down the line.
