in Surfing

This sums up the last 2 weeks pretty much.  Wife, kids, surfing, friends and a cheeky beer to go with it.  I won’t beat around the bush, the last two weeks have been nothing short of amazing.

Ericeria, Portugal is a beautiful little fishing village which is now part of the second “surfing reserve” globally because of its amazing quality and frequency of waves.

Luckily a good long time friend, the one and only Mark Ruperelia moved here a year ago and snagged a place big enough for us all to squeeze in.

No wonder we enjoyed the wine with him.

The weather has been great, the food tasty as usual and the surf has been… well…

This is Henry Jackson shot by Dan Mullins.  Henry is good enough to paddle out, loose enough to not know his limit and thats a pretty amazing combo.  He can surf like this thanks to that..

I managed to sneak a few most days too.  yes this was when me and the reef were still getting to know each other.

Theres also an amazing skatepark at Quiksilver, they have done an amazing job with retail, experience, food, coffee, all rolled into one.

We also ventured into the country to find some vineyards too and this amazing farm to table restaurant:

With the most amazing spots for afternoon snoozes.

We also visited the La Point surf camp too which has been an amazing afternoon.

Great food, amazing location and with a great pool which the kids loved

and yes that surf….  sizable..
Thanks Portugal!
