Photos from yesterday


Just finished editing one of the four cards I shooted yesterday afternoon at El Llotet To watch more photos from the session click HERE.
In a few hours I'll publish all the photos.

Fanning wins in Portugal

Mick Fanning won yesterday at Supertubos the Rip Curl Pro Search Peniche (Portugal), so he keeps his lead for the world title this year with just one event to finish the tour, the one at the classic Pipeline, in the North Shore of Oahu (Hawaii).
Joel Parkinson lost against Bede Durbidge in a full australian semi final affair, so he keeps his chances for the world title.
In the other semi final, Mick Fanning did not event get wet, because the wildcard and giant killer Owen Wright who in his way to the semi final defeated: Kekoa Bacalso, Kelly Slater, Dane Reynolds and Damien Hobgood, finished quarter final march up against Damien with an ear drum perforation, so he is not allowed to go in the water for a while.

And now in Peniche is time for the girls, now live in really good waves:

Victor Fernandez in Pozo Izquierdo

El Confital

Confi30Confi32Confi33Confi34Confi35Once again the competition in El Confital has not disappointed, despite being downgraded from four to two stars, this year's event, surf, waves, and the organization have been at the highest level (although I recognise that especially in the waves of the first day many of us would have liked to see what were able to do the best surfers in the world in such large and difficult conditions).

On Saturday we left the most beautiful corner of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the natural park of El Confital, with a good feeling and with the hope that next year a big sponsor bet for this jewel we have in the Canary Islands and we can see a competition at the highest possible level.

Rip Curl Pro Search, day 8

Good waves this morning at the Rip Curl Pro Search Peniche, but the intense fog in the area doesn't allow the judges to see the line up properly, so the competition is on hold.

El Confital perfection

Another amazing day at the Movistar Ocean & Earth Pro in El Confital.
Sorry but I'm exausted after swiming against the current for more than two hours, I'll post the photos tomorrow morning.

El Confital


The day started with a nice new swell, but maybe a little bit too big for the shallow reef of El COnfital, and the tide was already too low, so we waited for the tide coming up after lunchtime, by then everything was in the right place and we had an amazing day of surfing.

Next call tomorrow at 13:00, for more information:

Big waves


For a week, everybody have been talking about the waves that were coming for Thursday, the forecast looks insane, can´t wait.

For sure the sunset this afternoon was showing a change of weather, for sure the waves are coming, the doubt is where will be the best place to surf, becouse looks like most of the spots in the noth will be closing out or breaking outside the reefs, but the swell direction is NNW, so maybe doesn't turn arroud the island to the east side, lets see what happens.
