I only had been in Madeira once.
At the clip bellow that finish with one of my best barrel ever in my life at Quemao, Lanzarote.

Just saw this forecast for this week and i am a bit on bad mood right now.
Here, stuck in Tenerife south. Doing my surfer teacher diploma and thinking about open my own surf school(might be in Galicia, as my children's is living there), and can't go for this amazing week of great surf there.
Men get do what a men get do...

Filipe Toledo

Met this kid last summer during the Quick pro France.
Did not really knew him before.
He is from a different generation of me.
I did meet his dad and is the one i first say hello when i came through.we used to compete when i was  a kid , back in Brazil.

Slabs adiction

There is many place in Europe that we can ride big barrels.
Might say Ireland are the most perfect big ones.
Galicia has an undiscovered coast to it.We still finding places..
But Australia is for sure the one place in the world for slab .
Oz guys charge crazy!
Have a cousin living there i would be really keen to spend some month and surf all over.

safety by Surfline

First thing i though when i saw this post from surf line was.
I will lear something.
And i did.
I though only the breast pressing massage was using this days.
But there is doctors the still saying the best is a straight 5 breath on a unconscious person.
Second, go do a course pratical.
Is never the same when you just read.

Knee injury update

Knee is way better.Just did one RIM and i did not touched ligaments or bones.The left is a trickI was petty much happy to make the drop and pull in.

But it closed out on my knee.

Paco and rest of the locals bodyboarders helped me out to leave the water.
I am now in Tenerife for a Federal Spanish diploma and had surf for the first time today.
Feeling confident to be back on big waves soon.
