WATCH: A Portuguese Winter With Miguel Blanco

By on

"Portugal is home," says 26-year-old ripper and environmental activist Miguel Blanco. "There are so many waves. Some very scary, others very dreamy. All of them have their own magic though."

This magic Miguel mentions? It's in abundance here with his latest edit The Passenger, showcasing the incredible waves on offer during a winter around the country and his home of Ericeira.

"A few years ago I realised that surfing gave me so much," said Miguel. "Without the ocean, I could have never live the way I do today. I love being in the water. That’s why I take action and encourage people to experience the ocean and naturally care about our planet”.

From charging big barrels in Ericeira, to going all the way up north and scoring some jewels on the west coast of Portugal, and ending at one of the biggest swells of the season in Nazare, there's an eclectic mix here and worth a few minutes of your time.

Miguel on the charge.
