Gabriel Herrero - Lanzarote

Gabriel Herrero 2010 from mario on Vimeo.

Lazorete is an island in the Atlantic, beautiful for it´s volcanic scenario. Lanzarote was José Saramago´s (Portuguese Nobel Prize winner in literature) last home before he passed away. He wrote in "Cadernos de Lazarote" something like "Privatize everything, the sea, the sky, the water, privatize the fuckin cunt´s polithics mothers!" «Privatize-se tudo, privatize-se o mar e o céu, privatize-se a água e o ar, privatize-se a justiça e a lei, (...) e, já agora, privatize-se também a puta que os pariu a todos.» In this video, Gabriel is shouting Respect ME, because I´m FREE!!!

The Irish Rider

Last Photo suzymccanny@mac.com When you think of Ireland usually you remember a leprechaun (a type of fairy in Irish folklore they store away all their coins in a hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow) or maybe a Shamrock... Shane Meehan wants to show the world that Ireland isn´t just the Celtic Cross or the U2, Ireland is proud about it´s roots and all it has to offer, like great waves, deep barrels and good feelings... Irish riders earning Respect in a Global Evolution!

Aveiro times.

Aveiro Times, today we live for Spain..., the forecast looking amazing! Stay tuned.

Wrap Up

The Respect crew (Rui Ferreira, Renan Faccini, Juan and Oliver Rinder)went to the Sintra Pro. But first they visit Oporto City and they were delighted by the girls and the food. They tried a typical dish named francesinha (next time they will war Tripas à moda do Porto). After Oporto they toke the road to the Sintra Pro, Juan and Oliver entered the Trials and Juan still managed to advance two rounds. They cruised around Lisboa, surfed some spots, went to Lisbon Surf Capital (famous Costa de Caparica), visit Sain Jorge´s Castle and loved it! In this part of the journey they received a special package, the 2012 Respect Boars with Juan and Renan Pro models! The boards are awesome, they are made with the new PARADOX CELL... And in the video it was showned the special project Deluxe Pro Model... After a surf in Aveiro the Crew is headed to Ferrol... Stay tunned!

We have left Sintra to test the new boards in secret spots, now the crew is traveling around the North coast of Portugal.

Gabriel Herrero

Each city has it own name for underground mass transportation... In London they call it "TUBE", in NY "Subway", in Lisbon and Madrid is "METRO", in Porto "Andante"... Paris is "Métro" in a france accent... Anyway millions use this kind of transportation, cheap, environment friendly. Bodyboarders have another name: TUBE RIDING... Also cheap, also environment friendly, but a lot of fun! Gabriel Herrero has been tube riding, getting some shadow in his latest trip...
