This year once again the Surf Festival Gliding Barnacles took place in Figueira da Foz.
Organised by Eurico Gonçalves, there was a good environment, good music and good food.
Among Portuguese and foreigners there were several surfers who showed their best moves in the water with some classic surfboards built by some of the best known shapers. Small waves, heat and beer are the perfect combination for a Surf Festival that aims for fun! Photographers, artists, musicians and many surfers set foot in the festival and enjoyed every moment from day one! Here's a sample of the environment experienced in Gliding Barnacles!
Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram, Twitter, Whatsapp again... More and more it is more difficult to isolate ourselves, to escape from everything, to enjoy the silence. Silence… we are stupid enough so as to invent words that describe things that do not even exist!
In January 2019, snowboarder Mathieu Crepel and surfer Damien Castera, joined by photographer Greg Rabejac and lmmaker Pierre Frechou, traveled to the very northern tip of Norway for a boardriding expedition in the heart of the Arctic winter. In between snowy peaks and icy waves, they went deep into the polar night where solar winds meet Earth’s magnetic eld to create the fairy dance of the Aurora Borealis.
'Thank You Mother' is a cinematic journey of surfing, simplicity and appreciation. It is a film that isn't afraid to be beautiful, stylish and sincere. Produced by Torren Martyn and Ishka Folkwell with an original soundtrack by Nick Bampton. 'Thank You Mother' is narrated by award winning Australian film maker and life long simplist Albert Falzon, who made the seminal 1970 surf film 'Morning of the Earth'.
