  1. Pico Alto is just south of Lima and is the crown jewel of a wave rich area, that has been part of South American surfing folklore for many years. The ancient relationship with the coast and waves that Peruvians boast and feel is awesome energy to tap into - you need old spirits to look over you to challenge these powerful and perfect waves. Footage doesn't quiet do justice to the energy on tap at Pico Alto. This was my first year on the Big Wave World Tour and to make a final was a dream come true... if that wasn't enough, wuz invited by buddy Kohl Christensen to track the swell north to the Cabo Blanco points and got barrelled through the nite as a full moon illuminated the way out of each barrel we'd take off on blind-folded... epic and memorable moments...

  2. To catch a plane that crosses continentes and oceans, land, get in a van with friends and drive for hours to a place where a wave you've never surfed and you know is going to be BIG awaits... wake-up, check it out and go surf with a bunch of rad big-wave surfers and come out winning the top prize of the day, was a super cool experience... riding big waves has always been a vocation - something in me for many, many years - but now its a more focused pursuit in my life, which has so many gratifying and pure moments! The energy of the Basque Country, the stoke in the crowd watching, and the friendships are really good things to take away from it all... Good times :) // In Portuguese: "Apanhar um avião que atravessa os continentes e oceanos, aterrar e entrar numa carrinha que nos leva durante horas ate um pico que nunca surfaste e sabes que vai tar mega. Acordar, checar o pico e ir surfar com os melhores surfistas de ondas grandes europeus e ganhar o premio de melhor onda do dia foi das experiencias mais gratificantes desta minha carreira de surfista de ondas grandes, so recentemente chamada de tal, mas um percurso que ja comecou ha muito tempo! A energia do lugar, a pica do publico a ver o campeonato e as amizades, sao coisas bem boas com que fico depois da intensidade das coisas passar! Bons tempos :)"
