So, here´s how it all happened…

A friend shared a photo of Mark Cunningham and his family here in Lisbon, we got stoked, we couldn´t believe the Hawaiian Bodysurf Legend was here, in our own town! Another friend, André Medina, took a chance and sent a message to his friend Henrique Pistilli asking for Mark´s contact, 10min later we had it! It was 1h30 am and we took the shot, we sent an email to Mark and… we waited.

Next day the phone rang :- Hi Nuno, is Mark Cunningham, thank you for your email and invitation, I would love to be with you guys, I just have to see with my family and I´ll call you later, is that ok? – Oh hi, Mark! Hum..How are you? Ya…Sure!! Of course! No problem!! See you later then!

He called me to share the big news:- WE DID IT!! WE DID IT!!  -and we waited, and waited and nothing happened, no phone call. Late at night we said: – well it´s ok, at least we tried!

Friday morning Nuno´s phone rang again: – Hi Nuno, is Mark, we´re in!

We called our friends to tell the big news, but none of them believed us because it was April´s fools. After telling them we were serious, we set the time and place.

Saturday we met, and here are the moments we want share with you:

      I don’t believe in coincidences… Just before i received your comment i was checking the DOW trailer and some 70´s footage of you and your crew at the Wedge.. Does that mean you are visiting Portugal soon??
