Praia do Malhào, 13th March
This is definitely my last day of the winter, going back to Italy for a while after 3 months chasing waves.
Since I discovered Portugal, almost 10 years ago, winter became my preferite season of the all year. More surf, more opportunity to take my photos as the ocean is bigger, almost no-one around,just friends..and mild temperatures.
I guess, for me, this is the last swell this winter, it’s time to go to Italy for a while after 3 months here in Portugal. It’s quite hard to properly call this “a winter”, it has been always warm and sunny, just a few big swell with a daily size easily surf able. I think if i wasn’t so motivated, it would have been a very unproductive winter. But, as i kept all my attention and energy here, just on this subject, it turned into the best winter i ever had in my career.
