Sweet travel log vid, Creek. Enjoyed that one quite a bit. Looks like the adventure of a lifetime.
Was curious about rinsing boards off after surfing. I see so many people doing that and always I always considered it a waste of water.
One could go into a mall in Kansas and ask a teenager "What is a surfer looking for?, and the answer will always be, "The perfect wave"

Hey Creek,
Thank you for another instalment of your travelogue! Really interesting to see Cascais as my girlfriend visited there with her friend during the summer about 10 years ago and planned on having a go at surfing but unfortunately the surf was too big for first timers. After seeing your video I'm sure that I'll have to take the family there one day!
Intresting to see you on a Striker like mine - but you did it way more justice than I'm able to!
Glad to see that your trip is going so well!
Keep enjoying!

We could start a "send Creek to summer SUP camp" fund here.  There are ways to make money from YouTube videos and I know of some travelers that use it to fund their adventures. Seems like you've got the talent and personality to pull it off. Maybe Admin can set off in the right directions.

yikes!..... Not here I don't  ;D ;D


You folks are too kind, thanks for all the great thoughts!
Something to consider... but,
I have my hands full just trying to parse my pics and videos!

The wind has been howling around here.
West side of town is too big for most breaks and wind was 30-35 the last few days.

It actually built up a local wind swell on the south side of town, a few hundred yards from my apt.

Got a very lumpy sunset session in last night..... after the Stampede.
