Lourenço

Quick selection of photos from 2 days of unusual hurricane surf. We rarely get tropical storms in this parts, usually it is northwest swells, sometimes west. The last comparable one was recorded in 1851! Lorenzo was southwest/west, that is why it didn´t hit Nazare right. Down here was fantastic though, wedges, reefs and pointbreaks working … Continue reading Lourenço

Marlon Lipke and Francisco "Chico" Alves were on it and catched a few beautiful beasts until they got smashed and broke their boards. … Continue reading Marlon & Alves Score Huge Tonel

Hot & Cold

Algarve is nice. The sweetest weather you can have. When it rains you still can find a window to surf. In Sagres it can be harsh though. Yesterday I slept there with thunder storms and really cold. Half an hour drive to the east and it can be hot... Cientists say it´s a mixture of complex micro … Continue reading Hot & Cold
