Saquarema, Brazil

We’re in Brazil for the Saquarema Pro. Waves for the first day too small, swell predictions for later in the week looks good. (Scored the photos from the contest site and internet)

I’ve been home for a day – good timing – Stanley Badger from Channel Islands Surfboards (S.A.) brought a bunch of boards for all the Mossel Bay locals to try out…. thanks Stan !!!!!! We had a blast.


Almost time to leave Mexico. I have had an amazing time with some super fun waves. Long journey home begins soon….
