I said it before and i’ll say it again: If i can avoid Arrifana I will. But sometimes this spot is the only way to go. And to be honest it is amazing. Arrifana is so nicely protected from the strong north wind that there is almost always surf where the rest of the beaches are blown out.
Two dudes from Australia were super keen to come on a Surf Guide adventure. Unfortunately the van had a little big problem and there was no way I would drive that thing to the west coast in this condition. Lucky us, one of my best buddies, Daniel was keen to come and drive us.
