13 year old British grom Stanley Norman kicked off the year with some quality waves down in Portugal. A spell of warmer water and sunny days is always a welcome mid winter break from the hoods, gloves and rain of his hometown of Bude in Cornwall.
“We had really fun waves and surfed a lot. We stayed with Nic Von Rupp and it was great to surf with him too. Apart from the waves my favourite thing about Portugal is probably the food – yeah those little custard tart things are brilliant.”
