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

Last year had some great vacation visiting Azores. The place is pure beauty!I got to understand why the Green Islands nickname and want to go back (soon!). No August vacation this year,but the chance will eventually come up #goodmemorieslastforever #parqueterranostra #azores

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

Found happiness in the end of this road many times,but not today...surfing is verymuch like life,things don't always come your way, but when they do is so tasty!! #notmyday #thesearch #flatdays #sw #algarve #portugal

Like the view?Add this to your bucket list: "Watch the sun go down at Ria de Alvor". It really is worth it! #happyhour #mediterraneansunset #nofilter #riadealvor #algarve #portugal

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

Is it Sunday or "Funday"??Doesn't matter...go out there and enjoy the good weather the best way you can!! #cruiser #praiadarocha #algarve #portugal

Another free sunrise. Always a good way to start the day! Hope to watch many more! 😊 #dawnpatrol #arade #portimao #algarve #portugal

Can't think of a better way to start the week!!Well...it would be nice to have 17¤C instead of 7¤C...but I'm happy anyway. Wish you all a great week!#monday #surf #dawnpatrol #algarve #portugal

Just because it's Thursday,here's another throwback right in the hearth of the "Ochre City". You should travel to Morocco and visit many places, but Marrakesh is in a league of its own...It deserves at least a one-week stay! #tbt #koutoubia #marrakesh #morocco

Two years ago, on this exact day, started a journey through Morocco with the fam. Drove 3.500km and discovered a completely different world of what we are used to here in Europe. It was one of the best experiences of my life,and also it came in the right time. Miss the colors, lanscapes,fragances,...it's a wonderful country full of contrasts, with welcoming people. I definitely recommend it!! #tbt #hôtelcontinental #tangier #morocco #africa

That's a good way to start 2017!!The guys that wouldn't let me sleep last night left an empty perfect lineup all morning, just for myself! Hope to keep fit and healty, and make good use of all opportunities 2017 may bring! #happynewyeareverybody #loveoffshorewinds #algarve #portugal

Goes something like this "Let go what is stopping you". Saw it on the street, photographed it, and tried to understand the reason behind. Maybe just a copied message,or an inspirational moment of a street artist,but really got me thinking... #lifeadvice #urbanstreetart #praiadarocha #portugal

It's not heaven, but pretty close to me! Surf, eat, sleep, repeat...miss those days! #tbt #surf #maldives
