Normally when we feature Nazare in Portugal, it involves massive waves, jet skis and Andrew Cotton, but today it is all about local boy António Cardoso, who has released the third episode of his Volta Bodyboard video series. António stands out in the lineup not only because of he is often wearing a helmet, but because he absolutely charges and is someone who always gives 100 recent and certainly isn’t afraid of hitting the lip.
António, who is sponsored by Pride Bodyboards, Grand Flavour and G-Shock is definitely making his mark on the bodyboard world and will be appearing on the APB tour this year. The Volta series has showcased some of the best waves that Portugal has to offer including Peniche, Ericeira and Nazare, with episode 1 concentrating on the reef set ups and episode 2 starring wedge breaks. Episode 3 is all about the beach breaks.
The clip is a little slow to get going, but stay with it as boy does it pick up pace. You can see the final instalment of Volta below and find all three episodes on Vimeo. What do you think?
