We’re big fans of Alex Botelho.
Loyal readers will have read our exclusive interview with the finest Dutch/Portuguese transplant in our most recent print issue.
Our relationship with Alex started whilst filming Eurothrash.
He was the staple, calm being that he is, and that we needed during the madness. But in the water was a complete beast. Paddled out and over sized Coxos and his deep barrels and signature forehand gouges pretty much shut the whole thing down.
Whilst we filmed RumbleFish he came into his own and pretty much showed us every surfable spot on the Portuguese coast during a difficult swell window.
So naturally we’re delighted to be greeted with nearly 8 minutes of lost tapes by Senhor Vasco Valadas.
