This is Alex Botelho from Algarve, Portugal. “We (the Metal Neck Crew) nicknamed him the Portuguese Thor,” says the photographer Tom Carey, who’s been burning up the European coastline with a select crew that includes Wade Goodall, Creed McTaggart and Droid Doheny (you’ll see much more of this soon). “He’s crazy,” continues Tom. “He’ll shred the shit out of a three foot wave and then the next day you’ll see a shot of him at 30-foot Mavericks. He’s one of the most humble and underground guys you’ll never meet. He drove us from Portugal to Spain and back, answered a million of our questions and still managed to keep a smile on his face. Here he is near Lisbon showcasing some of his small wave prowess.”
