  • Land of Waves & Trains, Sri Lanka – Part I

    Is it odd that I miss waking up to the sound of the train horn at 6 in the morning? Maybe not…it does remind me that it was for a good reason…15 minutes later and I was crossing the road heading to the beach…     Fotos by @studio_melchior

  • CoolnVintage – The best way to explore

    Certain places in the world feel magical and this is one of them…wild and untamed, that’s how I describe the Algarve’s west coast. This rugged land with steep cliffs and pristine beaches has been part of my own personal discoveries since my early teens when surfing became part of my life. It’s a special place and…

  • SRI LANKA – Midigama

    This beautiful island has had its fair share of tragedy and misfortune. Besides having been colonized by the Portuguese, the Duch, and the English, Sri Lanka went through an extremely violent civil war which lasted more than 20 years, it was also one of the countries struck by the 2004 Tsunami and now, the recent bombings… Unfortunately, Sri Lanka…

  • Love afair

    No waves…no worries…spent some quality time with a single but unavailable Retro Movement Log and Tim Wendrich was there to capture those special moments. Clear blue water, sunshine and a beautiful sunset at the end…but cold, really cold. Things you do for love right? Thank you for the pic Tim!

Feeling proud considering I was having a quick lunch and suddenly someone announces the woman’s heat was about to start, half tuna toast down my throat running down the beach, quick change into my wetsuit,…

  • Who said summer was over…

    Not for the fortunate ones living in the Algarve it isn’t…here the sun will kindly share its heat for another month or so and before you know it the layering game begins. Until then, my plans are to enjoy and take advantage of blissful days like these (hoping they won’t end…) Swimwear from VAZVA(on sale)

  • GLIDING BARNACLES

    Last week was spent gliding in between the beach, the waves and the “garage” at the Gliding Barnacles in Figueira da Foz…a one of a kind surf festival where good vibes rule and the overabundance of beer makes you forget how the water was cold…but hey, beer was flowing, music was playing, everyone was having…

  • Deserted Island, San Blas

    “Stranded on a deserted island Looked over by the sea Wet like the deep waves Thoughts of you and me Tossing and turning in the sand That gently warms my skin The caress of your sweet soothing touch Slowly reels me in As we lay in the cooling wind That surely gives us air Our…
