Storm swell at Porto da Barra

So a 3-4m storm swell hit Salvador overnight, the wind was really intense, from what I can make out from the Portuguese website, a cyclone was hanging over SE Brazil sending some serious winds and waves our way.

I didn’t go out today as I was chilling with Elise and munching on various bolos (cakes). But from the looks of the surf and the guys out at Porto da Barra it was intense. I am tempted to go out tomorrow and get some nice cross/offshore rides, but I might have to make it out with the old faithful 6’4, as the waves are too big for the 6’0 fish to handle.

If I don’t make it back, yes Richie, you got the dibs on the mitch, haha!
