When medium sized Swells with a good period meet light easterly winds for 2 weeks straight you know where to go on the iberian peninsula. Well, almost, because if you wanna surf one of thousands of beachies in Portugal you got to know the banks. Anyway, since I had some good ones there recently i was hoping that the banks are still there and fuck, they were! Besides the hollow right I had one heavy big left on a 3m 18 sec. swell to myself – a swell where you usually dont surf anywhere with sand. The current was so strong that I was holding on to a bouy, that the fishermen put way out the back, but this is where the biggest sets were breaking. Pretty amazing feeling I must say.
Then there was a real fun few days with the Basque crew Rafa & Txaber, that were around a few days and Phillip Strauss, a (Ex) Pro Snowboarder from Munich who is much into Surfing now. Super fun days and Nazare showed us some beautiful Aframes even at just 4-6 pretty heavy. To cruise more than a week with Eva was real fun, this time we didn´t move around too much and just enjoyed the Beach, waves, food and Time.
