china (it's or should be a tradition, but has become an exception!)
She celebrated not only her 10 years in china but her birthday as well.
The party was in a "hippie style" at China Groove. It was a great and

were, but not with a good formation. So we went back to Nan'ao were

clothes feel inside the wash machine...Rabixo tried to run from the
waves, but he wasn't fast enough, Sebaldo cut his lip, Cachaca was hit
by a wood and Geada couldn't go back to the outside since the waves were
too strong on the inside. Also the security took us out so we run back
to Xi Chong were the beach was already closed. Well, then we surfed at
Dong Chong beach at Saturday. On Sunday morning we got to Xi Chong at
6am so there was nobody blocking the access and we could go in and surf
there. Around 10 the security arrived and they alerted us not about the
Typhoon or the waves, but about Sharks... so be aware, they said that
sharks are being seeing around there. Take a look at the pictures and
you will see what we are talking about...

Sunday surfing. The typhoon season is starting a little earlier this
