Pierre-Louis Costes: obrigado, Portugal

He married a Portuguese princess, and he lives in Portugal for quite a while. That is why "Obrigado" is a warm "thank you" to a country blessed by some of the best bodyboarding breaks in the world.

In five minutes, and twenty-four seconds, Pierre-Louis Costes proves he made the right decision when he chose Portugal as the training ground for multiple world title attempts. His rides will leave you speechless.

"The purpose of this video was to thank Portugal, and it was important for me to let all the Portuguese know how much I am grateful to be living in their country," explained Costes.

"Thanks for welcoming me so well and letting me share your culture and your precious waves. The person responsible for this video is my wife. She is the reason I moved to Portugal, and made me discover how amazing her country was."

"Obrigado" shows Pierre-Louis excelling in world-class waves. Brutal air moves, impossible backflips, and deep tube rides. It seems Costes has made the right decision. What do you think?
