Surf photographer Tó Mané is hosting an innovative photo in the waves of Ribeira d'Ilhas, in Ericeira, Portugal.

Hailed as the European surfing capital, Ericeira is a World Surfing Reserve since 2011. The multiple surf breaks, which includes Ribeira d'Ilhas and Coxos, have been explored since the mid-1970s.

Tó Mané, the man who photographed Garrett McNamara's stunt in the giant waves of Praia do Norte, in Nazaré, will put out a lifetime experience for professional and amateur surf photographers.

The world's best surfers experienced one of the biggest competition days ever at the Billabong Pro Tahiti, in Teahupoo, with 10-to-15 foot (3-5 metre) barrels firing down the line.

The Teahupoo test kicked off with a handful of excellent tube riding performances. Kelly Slater didn't waste time and sealed his heat with a total of 16.40 points, including a nine-point ride.

"I couldn't wait to start the heat and get going this morning because it was perfect. I'm so excited that I'm shaking. I need to calm myself down because I'm too excited. It's going to be a great week, and I think it's going to get considerably bigger than this," says Slater.


Jay Adams: legendary surfer and skateboarder

Jay Adams was one of the most important names in the surf and skateboarding team Z-Boys, alongside Jeff Ho, Skip Engblom, Craig Stecyk, Allen Sarlo, Nathan Pratt, Jay Adams, Tony Alva, Chris Cahill and Stacy Peralta.

Back in the mid-1970s, the Zephyr Competition Team used to catch waves in the morning by the Pacific Ocean Park Pier, and hang out in the streets of Santa Monica with their rolling planks.
