Again I choose the Boogietrip Bodyboard Holidays on the Azores to enjoy a little bit of summer in the middle of the grey and cold transition between Autumn and Winter at home. To postpone the end of summer for a little bit. And what kind of a sunny trip it was.
Autumn and Winter are just around the corner, time to expand the Summer a little bit more and to round off my long timeout with surfing at the Azores.
(1252 – 2130 km) The West is explored, all works in the base camp are done. Time to start going southwards onto the long run of my road trip.
(0 – 1251 km) Everything is packed, the car is filled up, I turn the ignition key and the trip starts. The known disappears behind the last turn, the new awaits after the next bend.
My basecamp for the road trip is located in the Bretagne, nearby Dinan. Here starts my road trip with the camping car, but first some last preparations have to be finished.
Actually I had a different intention. First destination on my time-out trip was Portugal. I had planned to take a step back from the daily grind and to improve my surfing in a technical and physical way for my Atlantic roadtrip. But the weather also exists.
The desk ist cleared, I said goodbye to the colleagues and my laptop and mobile phone are locked away. And now?
Nic from Boogietrips offers besides the Algarve adventure also a surf trip to the Azores. I booked the trip this year for the first week of November. Michel, who was also with us on the Algarve tour, was also at the party and brought along five of his colleagues.
For a couple of years now I’ve been visiting Sintra in Portugal on a regular basis to bodyboard. I stay with the surf school Sintrasurf and surf the Lisbon/Sintra area with bodyboard coach Nicolas Rosner.
This year I decided to go with him and his on Bodyboard trips´ specialized branch Boogietrips for four days to Sagres in the region of the Algarve. This region in the south of Portugal offers a lot of versatile surf opportunities.
Finally. A short surf trip to my small Portuguese living room.
