Dreamy conditions at Zavial
Still on the road with the Dutch boys who got used to the potential of the waves in the Algarve already a few times before, it was time to score.
Tide-swell-wind-direction and a little bit of dutch stoke made us arrive super early at the beach of zavial. We couldn’t believe our eyes. Except for a few hippie-campers who would hopefully get a big fine later that morning there was no other people. We did a small contest who could get in his wet wetsuit the fastest and paddled out.
We got about an hour and a half with no one in the water. All of us got barreled (not all of us made it out, but does that matter?) All of us got worked, all of us got plenty of waves and all of us were as stoked as you can get. When a pretty large group paddled out I decided I had enough water up my nose and got the camera to shoot some of the best waves the Algarve has to offer.
