Francisco Alves is a young talented surfer from Costa de Caparica, Portugal.

When he decided to embark on a surf trip to the Mentawai Islands, he also wanted to leave city life for a while. Inspired by the blue barreling waves, Alves put on a clinic surfing performance in the heart of the Indian Ocean.

Dimitri Maramenides, the founder and owner of Epic Kites, rode his kite a few hours before Hurricane Florence hit the East Coast of the United States.
