Amazing video lesson from Portugal
At the ASP world tour contest Rip Curl Pro Portugal 2012 an unbelievable wave was captured in the eye of the camera.
It’s the most unbelievable wave scene I have ever seen.
On Friday, after 2 days without being in the Ocean, my heart was beating in the surf-surf-SURF rythem strongly again. And the pain in the shoulder muscles has vanished completely. So my mind, my body, my soul and my muscles were ready to surf again.
The waves were far away from perfect on all the spots around Peniche on that day, but the will to surf was just too strong to resist. Even the fact that my two broken short boards were not fixed yet didn’t stop me to enter the water.

Today was a bit of a changing weather day here in Pencihe. There was really hot sunny morning, and just as I was to leave to the beach, there was a huge rainy storm taking over the clear deep blue skies. So I decided to finish my work, which was falling a bit behind, cause of all the good swells in Heart of the Ocean . . . and also in the mind’s heart.
I must admit, that some time livinge here in Peniche there was some doubt present if this is the right direction of my life to take . . . I’ve came almost to the point of deep worries . . .
And than today, while I was going to the shop with my sister, we passed a rocky ocean cliff, with this magnificent sight to be seen over them.

After the duck dive session on Thursday, there was a change on the horizon. Kaja was leaving home, as her month long surf trip has ended. We said good-bye on the beach, surfers style like. I only know this girl for a week or so, but really was pleasantly relaxing spending time with her, meeting in Peniche. And as she left the kind of feeling of meeting again soon some random place again when she left. Cool stuff 😉
“…I realized every surfer has to like paddling, at least a little. this was because extremely little of each surf session is spent actually standing up on your surfboard on a wave – maybe one percent – so if you’re looking to have a good time it’s essential to find a way to enjoy paddling, or at least good-naturedly bear it. and in that way, I thought, surfing is kind of a good metaphor for the rest of life.” (jaimal yogis)
