“Paddle Out” is the sacred ceremony of the surf community, used for the celebration of life, or in homage for those who have parted. it is strongly rooted in surf culture, it is one of the rituals that definitely defines us as a group, tribe.

ROUNDTABLE – “PROTECTING NATURE THROUGH SURF”

Surf has an important role in nature conservation. As surfers, we are constantly in the water and we are responsible to keep the beaches clean and spread the word and raise awareness to others on defending nature.

With important names in the surfing community like Alex Botelho, Eurico Gonçalves and Manuel Mestre we invite all of you to assist and participate on the 22nd of September at 4 pm at Forte do Beliche.

RAPOSEIRA DUB COLLECTIVE

The Raposeira Dub Collective plays reggae, influenced by dub, ska, jazz and indie. The quartet around the Swedish singer/ukulele player Naomi is formed of international musicians from Australia, Portugal and Poland. Naomi once wrote “I go, I’m gone, I’m long away”, a text line that drove her to live and tour all over Europe, before choosing to stay in Portugal for good, where the Dub Collective was born. Naomi’s original compositions impress with poetry and her unique and powerfull voice, while her band provides authenticity, good vibes and a groove that will drag you to the dancefloor. To quote them again: “I might see you there, I might see you there, I might”.
