After a few days in the Netherlands for some family business. (It was kinda amazing, picked exactly the 2 days of summer they will have for this year, went sailing and took a boatride trough the channels in the ‘polder’, unfortunately no-surf (we did check.)
There was one Dutch dude who was super stoked to go surfing with me on the day that i came back in the Algarve. The problem was that I would land at night and being already pretty tired from all the social events I wasn’t really sure how fit I would be for the next morning. Luckily my natural clock was stronger than my mind and I was up super early- contacted the dude and an hour later I got picked up by him and his family for a surf at Amado.
While the kids where celebrating their last day on the beach of Amado fighting each other and making the perfect audience for surfer-dad and me, the waves were absolutely super fun. Just a hand full of people in the line up and with a 9 second 1 meter wave just constant action. we surfed for about two hours. As the tide came in, so did the wind (and so did the people).
