It happens to me just one week before go to Hawaii , what a lucky man , am I ?
It's really funny this situation , because when happens something like this , you realize very well that our helth is just all , and the rest is nothing .
Well , I am taking the medicines , and I feel better already . Very soon I will be ready to fight again . GAMBARU .
My medicines , OISHIIIIIII .
Marcelo , Cassio , Leandro , Yuri , Takashi , Pedro , Douglas and Yugi .
Today I was all day long at home , watching the Volcom Pro and organazing my photos . I found this old album ( 7 years ago ) , during the period I used to surf often in Mie-Ken ( center of Japan ) . I do miss to be in touch with this guys , and surf next to them . We were like a team . Leandro lives in Hamamatsu now , and we see each other often , and also we call each other every day . He never let me down and he is like a brother to me in Japan . Yuri is the funniest guy I ever met in Japan , now he lives in Santa Catarina Brazil and we are always in touch , talking almost everyday by chat on the MSN . Cassio lives in Kobe , is the most successful Brazilian I know living in Japan , great job , always traveling and many chicks running for him . Marcelo is Yugi's father and he still lives in Mie . Takashi is Japanese , but loves Brazilian people and he was always around us , he went to Brazil one year ago , and has no plan to came back to Japan . Douglas got married with a Spanish girl from the Spain Village in Mie , and after a long surfing stay at Canary Island they moved to Brazil , and he is working for a big Spanish company overthere right now .

Leandro , Marquinho , Fabio , Pedro and Odair .
Odair lives at Nambari beach Mie , nice spot , he is the Index Krown manager in Japan , we work together , think together , nice guy . Marquinho owns a Car Shop in Suzuka Mie and also he likes beer a lots , my beer rival . Fabio went back to Brazil with his wife , the professional body boarder Francis Aoto , they just had a baby few months ago . Nostalgia post today .......... Thank's for all guys , Brazilian surfers in Japan .
This winter is being the coldest winter in years in Shizuoka , we have to face very low temperatures every day . Also the waves are not helping the surfers and body boarders around here .
Yesterday was really funny ; I am not body boarding for close one month already , so before sleep , I said to Aimi , "Tomorrow never mind what the waves are , the wind , the cold , anything , I am going to the beach and use my new board . She looked to my face , gave me a big smile and said "Ok , I am going together ".
Well , we got up early like every day ( but to leave the futons also takes a long time , coz of cold ) ,we went down to the beach , and we face one more day of tough winter , with freezing wind and waist high waves .
She looked at me and ask me , "are you going to surf ?" , After a long silence , I said "well , I will wait get close to the lunch time , it's warmer . why don't you go ?" her answer " I will wait for you to go ".
So we went to the library in Hamaoka , searching for a basic English book for travelers and some intellectual magazines ( Surf and Soccer mags , hahahaha) .
After we left the library , was already lunch time , so we looked to each other , and before I say anything , Aimi said , "It's better we wait the afternoon , the wind will be not so strong , I guess ". Of course I agreed immediately . So we went to eat something , later I did some tests with my new camera ( a Nikon D300s ) , walk in the park , and after all , I DID NOT SURF again .
Well I tried , but I have to confess , the cold is winning against the surf this winter . But I never give up and tomorrow I will try again , If I will get ...... Who knows .......

It's going to turn weeks that I am away from the beach . This fucking cold is letting me down . So I ask my self , " Are you all right Pedro ? Can you still do it ? ". Last year I surfed just few times , so I really don't know my real condition right now . All I can do is keep training in the pool , what I do almost every day . Well my D day is coming soon , so I can know if I still can show something or if I am over already . GAMBARU.
Really cool to see in the water riders like Tamega , Mike Stewart & Paulo Barcellos .
The Pipeline Pro this year will be the best ever I guess , powered by Red Bull TV .
