  1. Ser co-fundador do movimento das Reservas Mundiais de Surf, tendo trabalhado com o Save The Waves Coalition na criação da infra-estrutura e metodologia deste programa de preservacão ambiental em torno de ondas icónicas, foi com grande alegria que vi a Ericeira - uma zona muito especial da costa Portuguesa - ser reconhecida com este galardão. A Ericeira e a sua comunidade local merece este reconhecimento e a utilização desta ferramenta para preservar as suas ondas para as proximas geracões. //
    Being co-founder of the World Surfing Reserves movement, having worked at the Save The Waves Coalition offices as Program Manager creating the institutional infrastructure and operating guidelines for this tool to serve environmental conservation around iconic surf-spots, it was with tremendous happiness that I participated and witnessed Ericeira - a very special piece of Portuguese coastline – be recognized as a World Surfing Reserve. The waves and the community totally deserve this recognition and the possibility to use a tool that can protect their waves for future generations.

  2. Arriving at Mavericks in 2005 was part of a long individual and professional process; this wave - as with many of us - has changed my life. Nowadays to be part of an eclectic and elite group of surfers that interact with this natural phenomenon is a continued honor and reason of pride. At least WATCHING this amazing natural wonder is something I recommend to any dedicated surfer. Also in the clip images from an unforgettable left off a lost island in Indonesia; and finally some “old-school” footage of Portuguese once groms Nic Von Rupp, Pedro Pinto and Tomás Valente in action – the coaching work with these groms was the basis to develop the Method 7 surf coaching framework as well as research for writing the “How to be a Surfer” book published in the US in 2007. //
    Agora sei que a chegada a Mavericks em 2005 fez parte de um longo percurso individual e professional – esta onda mudou a minha vida! Hoje em dia fazer parte dos surfistas que interagem com este fenómeno natural é uma continua honra e razão de orgulho. Pelo menos VER este espectáculo natural é algo que recomendo a qualquer surfista dedicado.
    Imagens também neste clip de uma esquerda inesquecível numa ilha perdida da Indonésia; e finalmente imagens bem “old-school” de treinos do Método 7 com Nic Von Rupp, Pedro Pinto e Tomás Valente em acção – material de pesquisa usado na criação do "Livro7: Como Ser Surfista" (publicado em 2004) e a versão Americana do Livro 7 - “How to be a Surfer” (2007).
