When did you started bodyboarding and why?
I like boogie boarding as a whole, prone or DK. but personally I prefer surfing in prone. because for me is the most natural and comfortable position.
Where do you live ! is it a good place?
I live in a city (Marinha Grande) located a few kilometers from the beach (São Pedro de Moel) my Local Area. here there are good waves, the coast has many beachbreaks and some secret reefs. I'm near Nazaré and Peniche, which always gives to surf almost every day of the Year
What is your best result in contest?
How bodyboarder never competed so far would be. just did some local tournaments and events with friends over time. Been linked to bodyboard competition, as organizer and also as judge.
What is the craziest meal that you eat during a surf trip?
Well .. During a surfing trip the craziest meal we tried was horse meat. without knowing what I was experiencing, but the meat was more tender than you can imagine. however, did not wish to repeat.
Do you often ride skateboards?
well, i like skateboarding, but never had a knack for skateboarding. I prefer to ride street bmx.
Island Slalom Tour is a series of skateboarding contests on tiny french islands where nobody has ever skated! We are as Captain cook at Hawaii in 1600! Except we have now motor boats and concrete roads... What do you think about this?
well, as you say, I'm not too hooked on skateboarding, but for me everything that is pioneering, deserves respect! something unique and adventurous is good.
What is your biggest Wipe Out?
My biggest wipeout was at Supertubes (Peniche), one of the first ones I surfed, after a long layoff due to illness. It was a hell of a wipeout, thought it broke my back in that day .. lolol
