The ocean kept delivering all week, and I kept going work every single day...the worst part is that where I work, I can actually see them breaking perfect, always reminding me "the surf must be awesome today" #torture #bummer #winterswell #algarve #portugal

This is the reason why I'm always wishing for winter days. The cold(very!), blue perfect waves sent by the Atlantic. Nature at its best! It was a good weekend,time to tune into workmode #waves #winterswell #offshore #algarve #portugal

Saying goodbye to 2017...and can't complain about it. Wasn't the best but it was a good year. Brought me new friends, got to know different places, had good laughs and stayed healthy all year. Let's hope 2018 can be as good... #goodbye #wintercolors #algarve #portugal

Just saw some amazing surf footage of Four Season Maldives surfing championship that is taking place these days,and realized exactly two years ago on this day I was boarding a plane to the same place,and what an experience it was! Thanks Nuno for joining me and being such an authentic person all these years, and thanks to all the guys in the boat that made our trip even better @amitaymaoz @amit_cohen___ #manuelmainar #guillo #alec #jeanluc #christine #fabrizio #iwishihadatimemachine #thanksforsharingboys #goodmemorieslastforever #eatsurfsleeprepeat #maldives #paradise #maavahi #surf

Another year,another edition, another great success!I just love the concept of MED festival!Small streets packed with all kind of people,the street vendors,the locals in the mix,stages in almost every corner ... MED isn't just another music festival... #anotherlevel #keepupthegoodwork #boogat #festivalmed #loule #algarve

Twenty three years ago was a very sad day for a lot of people,including me. Heroes never die, and I learned on that exact day that actually THEY DO. It was very disappoiting and I was really angry with the world. So angry that I even stopped following F1 racing till this day. What I never tought at the time was that Ayrton would live inside of every fan for many years, and that today so many sportsman would still be inspired by his drive and his will to be the best. To me he still is... #ayrtonsenna #f1 #greatestofalltime #idol

Here's a good greeting card for the rainbow nation. All different,but all equally beautiful. Eventhough life is not easy for the majority of the residents of this poor neighborhood,I bet it must be refreshing to come back home after a hard working day, and feel the happiness transmited by all these colours. Do you think it would be the same thing if they were all grey or beige? #rainbownation #bo-kaap #capetown #southafrica

It's impossible to show on pictures the breathtaking beauty of Table Moutain having Cape Town at her feet. What an impressive view!!I'm simply overwhelmed #nofilter #needa360camera #tablemoutain #capetown #southafrica

Have some great memories of this place! It's one of my favourite "beach scenarios", and eventough is located near a very touristic area, remains almost untouched for the last 30 years. With this strong wind and lack of swell, I believe I won't write another page here today... #layday #praiadoalemao #algarve #portugal
