Here are some of the many of my pictures that were Purchased by the Brazilian body board media . I did worked hard in Hawaii , but when I see my photos geting life makes me feel rewarded and give me inspiration to keep shooting more and more . I can't wait for my next trip , working it out now .
When Pipeline got really big , I was out there fighting for a wave ( It is a war to catch a wave in a classic day overthere ) , or trying get some photos from the water . So Aimi chan was shooting from the land with my Nikon D300S and she got some good photos like this ones on the top here .
All I can say to her is thank's a lot for all , made this trip a very special one for sure , Mahalo .
Haleiwa is the nearest city to the North Shore , and also has some beaches , not my favorite kind of wave , but still a very good wave . Many japanese surfers like this spot . I could met Joel Centeio after surf , nice guy . The first time I met him was 2 years ago in Chiba during the WQS . Also Haleiwa is a good place to go out at night , to drink , have some shushi or try a delicious Burger .
Well folks , this monday was my first day in the water this year in Japan , and my return to the cold water was really all right . Good clean waves at Komanba Beach , one of the best surf spot in Japan , all my Brazilians friends overthere , cool .
Since the earthquake last week in Sendai , I was really down and worried , I guess just like everybody . But the life is short , we have to stand up and face our problems and keep our lifes going on , that's all we can do . Ride some waves today made me and everybody was there feel better . So if you feel down and worried , go down the beach , talk with God , breathe some fresh air , and relax , coz in the end everything is gonna be all right . Aloha .
If I could ask something to the Prime Minister of Japan , I just would like to say to Please stop all nuclear power stations in the Island right now . What a nightmare we are living in Japan . We need a miracle . Good luck for everyone is all I can say now , and faith in Jesus , only him can try to fix up the men mistakes .
Snapper Rocks, in the Gold Coast (AUS), has one of the most perfect right hand waves in the world and even with a small swell the Quiksilver Pro 2011 was amazing. Great atmosphere on the beach and great surf on the water. Taj Burrow and Kelly Slater fought for the title on the final and the king got the crown once again. Kelly has shown the young fellas they have a lot to do if they want to win the world title this year. Even being the oldest guy (39yo) out there he is the one who most likely is going to win the ASP World Tour 2011, for the 11th time. What else can I say? Kelly is the king.
I could met many professional body boarders and surfers in Hawaii , but Neymara is special . She was so kind to me and Aimi , she always came until us to talk and ask how was the things in Hawaii or even to say just hello . Even being a World famous body boarder , she keep being so simple and cool to anyone .
It was a pleasure to me make a photo session with her and surf next to her aswell . She is back in the World tour this year , and it is going to be hard to the other girls stop her .
Kalani is 16 years old , he was born in Maui but he lives in Brazil now . Local body boarder of Itacotiara Rio de Janeiro Brazil , he is participating of the IBA World tour 2011 and for sure very soon people will start to hear his name a lots . I made one photo session with him at Pupukea and above you can see one photo of that day . Keep bodyboarding kalani , very soon you can be in the top of the World , Aloha .
