When speaking about surfing in Portugal, the boards seem to indicate Ericeira as the muslims pray towards Mecca. This metaphor is well present in the title of EPIC TV’s video, which documents a week of great waves and classic sessions in Ericeira’s shores, shared between two top surfers: the luso-german Nicolau Von Rupp and the uruguayan-brazilian Marco Giorgi.

The video is straight-forwardly directed towards the surfing and the waves, rather than to the musings between the surrounding nature and the soul searching that is characteristic of surfing. But there’s plenty of action to whet the appetite for further tides. Until when are the swimsuits staying dry?
