Ricardo has a calm and idiosyncratic connection to surf. For him, surfing is not just a sport, it’s a life fulfilling experience. With his surfing, he shows that reaching harmony is a tireless quest where you need to find the moment in your favor and be able to grasp it to express unity. One move can make a thousand waves. Ricardo truly believes in it that surf means to him an enormous and sincere gratitude. Since surf dazzled him, in the age of 14 with a magic 5´10 board that belonged to his best friend Mica, he’s been riding the waves around Ericeira.
