Altough Bafureira is very close to São Pedro’s beach, I had never tried to catch some waves there. It’s always a little bit more crowded than I like, and I really enjoy my little sunny spot in São Pedro. But this Saturday, São Pedro was completely flat, so we decided to try Bafureira, and I must say… it was fantastic! A perfect point break, with a fantastic long and perfect wave.
I really don’t know if I’ll ever go back to São Pedro, and that makes me sad. I’ve had built a strong relationship with that place, and now I have to let it go. 🙁
While Barack Obama keeps on looking for his Portuguese Water Dog, Saturday I found one surfing on São Pedro’s beach. His name was Vasco. He completely stole the show. King of the beach. I believe he managed to surf all the waves that went through that peak. Big, small, medium, rare… And there he goes for another one.
Another summer weekend with two sunny days with good waves in São Pedro do Estoril. I’m still a (very) small waves surfer, so this weekend was great!! Specially Saturday, as Sunday was a little more crowded. But it was a nice crowd. 🙂
It was a summer day, in all aspects. It was hot, sunny and almost flat. The exception was the water temperature… cold, cold, cold.
Nevertheless, it was a great surfing morning, full of sun and enough waves to have fun. And once again, the break was ours. No one else on the water.
In the end, it got really flat. So flat, I didn’t even remembered what I was doing there.
The best way to start a working day. 7AM surfing session.
Another great morning to surf, in sunny São Pedro.
Today’s hero was Luca, an ex-bodyboarder, that kept on appearing on every wave and on every picture, with his unique style.
Great morning in São Pedro. Definitely the best this year. Sun & small waves.
We were the first to arrive there, so, for an hour, the beach was ours!
Afterwards it started to get a little bit crowded, but we already had a smile on our faces.
It was a great weekend.
Nice waves at São Pedro, on Saturday.
Last weekend there were no “giant” waves as expected, but there were some pretty good waves to have some fun.
Enough waves to have another edition of the Estoril Surf Festival. The photo above is from the Skimboard championship, in São Pedro’s beach (Estoril).
The Longboard European Championship will take place on the 13th and 14th of December.
Perfect waves at São Pedro. If I wasn’t so tired, and so out of shape it would have been a beautiful morning. But it was nice, though.
A special note to the number of surfers in the water. There were less than ten when I arrived. There were more than fifty a few hours later. Surf schools included. On a single spot.
