It was the last week at the gravityking surfhouse in Capelas. The month passed in no time and we would like to thank our guests who spent an awesome time with us. Hope to see you soon to share a couple of waves. Because sharing is caring.
The first week on São Miguel was about getting into surfing mode and further explore the island. We expected pretty bad surf due to strong northeasterly winds, but were positively surprised as we surfed throughout the week. After hitting the beach break called “Populo” in Ponta Delgada we took our time to show our guest places and treat ourselves with good food.
The wave forecast for Friday was almost 50″ at Nazaré. Being rather close (actually in Santander, 760km away) we decided to go there to watch the show. The drive was a hassle but it was more than worth being tired. The nature delivered a spectacle like nothing we saw before. And it’s true: you can really feel the waves crashing when you are at the lighthouse.
Unfortunately it was too messy to surf and the boys stopped trying after two attempts. Too dangerous… Here’s our 4 minute edit for you: pure waveporn in XXL-size.
Last week was a driving week. All the way from Razo, Galicia to Arrifana in the Algarve in three days. Now we are sitting in the sun, waiting for the next swell to arrive.
Our last week in Razo had it all: from world-class surfing to stormy days. Just as you would expect from Galicia. The Rip Curl Grom Search was a blast, I learned how to fish for Zargos at night and the kitten were responsible for the fun in between. We really fell in love with Razo. Today including 2:30 of funny cats only to brighten your Monday.
This is our day to day routine travelling from beach to beach. Looking for good waves, spending some quality time in and out of the water, meeting likeminded people and just chilling.
Add a handful of beginners into a shorebreak and here’s the fun. After almost 2 hours of good surf in offshore conditions this was the perfect show to chill in the sun.
