Ocean Spirit on my mind

I’ve made it to Santa Cruz but not without some pain………in my hip pocket that is. Excess baggage arghhhhhhhhhhhh AUD$86 per kg, think I my have set a record here, at least they only put 2 holes in my ski this time. Anyway I’m still happy, Portugal seems to have that effect on me. Have checked out the event site, still a bit of building to do but I did see a big hole in the sand where the pool goes, remember if you win a trophy your going in there!

Its now day 2 and I ventured down to Ericeira home to Tiago Pires. Scored a few waves at Praia de Sao Lourenco, which has some protection from the north westerly that is gusting around 20kts at the moment. Found a groovy little café and had one of the best coffees I’ve ever had with a world famous Portuguese tart, yummy.

Tonight I ‘ll check out the action at down town Santa Cruz and put my thoughts together on this incredible French team.

Until tomorrow or the next day Ocean Spirit on my mind.


Thanks Steve!


Boas ondas,
