I was kinda hoping for the Islands to crank up again but wasn´t sure if it´s gonna happen. But as the swell season started late, it´s more than likely that we still get some proper long period swells in April.
I didn´t think too much of that swell, cause I was just super spoiled of weeks of good surf in Portugal and had a pretty bad neck for over a week after two nice wipeouts in Nazare. For longer I was keen to go with Tony Butt an das he wrote me about that forecast we decided spontaneously to go. Winds ended up being a bit worse than expected which limited the choice of spots a bit but we still had some super fun waves and one chunky day along. Learning more about swells and surf-related topics from the guru as well as his enviromental projects was really interesting and inspiring. I hope we have some more trips, especially tot hat magic island, which is unlike anywhere else.
