New home at São Julião, Portugal

Now i am thinking what to write from my last 2 days i understand how many things i did..
I am tired,hahah
Came from Caminha, north of Portugal tuesday night.
Got my new house keys from the old owner and lovely lady Filipa.
Didn' t have time to surf and just went to see Coxos and say hi to my friends.
Woke up 4 am cause i couldn' t sleep with my wife's voice in my head telling me that i need conect water, power, clean up ..
And more than that the forecast was good for Cave.
The most strong slab around and for sure always the best option to go.
Got at the car parking of Cave 7am..
Alex Botelho, Joao Macedo and Antonio Silva read and sad as me..cause was shit,hahah
Went to fix water and power..
After a hour lost or more on that little surf at "Bico"the fisrt peak of Coxos with Alex.
Nothing special except one nice wypeout on the best wave came to him..
Left the water and said hi to the judging crew of ASP that was hanging checking the waves .
One of them start to yell..
_Did you see that?That guy just went straight to the rocks!
I start to run and when i got there one friend of my from Italy was getting smahed on the rocks.
I wa s2 feet from him but could jump cause solid 6 feet white water was jsut to power to get him and go up the rocks..
After 20 min one of the waves send him to a more safer place but he could do nothing with one broken arm.
We went ther eand could get him.
One of the craziest thing i ever see and i am really happy he still here with us!!
God does exist!
Went back home, surf again at Sao Juliao where my new house is.
Woke up again 5 to go up to Nazaré.
Had some funny waves..
Washed the Pwc and now buying meat for a barbecue and to all my firend unload all the big truck that is coming with the family!!!

Aveiro surf Portugal.

Swell wasn' t big enough to move.
well, i though wasn' t big enough..
Had a call from my friend To Mané local photographer from Porto.
_Eric, let' s go.It' s a beautifull city and you never surf that wave.
_ok, let' s try.
As Aveiro is only 30 min south of Porto and Porto 40 min from Caminha.Here up north on the border where we are now i decide to go.
Didn' t want to go without the family and that was even better , cause there  is always something new on my daughter Uma to laugh..
We got there end of afternoon and the spot we were wondering to surf next day was pumping.
Solid 6 feet, but the only bad thing was the cross wind.
So we went to this perfect little right.
Had dinner at local boy Luis Rosas restaurant(to much food.5 different seafood like a open buffet).
Rented one appartement for 60 euros 2 bedrooms ..
Next day early wake up and perfect off shore wind.
A bit small than the day before, around 5 feet, but a lot of fun.
Only 5 guys out , so peaks everywhere.
Thanks for the surfers to all locals!!
