I just got back from Portugal and the memories, still vivid in my mind, harden into images that will accompany me forever. I should have been there to see the final phase of the Rip Curl Pro Portugal, but unfortunately airline tickets purchased a month earlier were not in tune with the weather. I was at the airport while the final part of the contest was on and Adriano De Souza beat Kelly Slater one barrel after the other. After a few days spent in Peniche to check the spots of the area I moved further south in the world surfing reserve of Ericeira.
Ericeira is certainly the place to stay, a small and genuine fishing village with dozens of different breaks for every level and taste, halfway between Peniche and Cascais, it’s easy to find a house or a room in one of the hostels,it’s one of the most friendly place i’ve been and people take care of you.
