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.

The Chilean big wave surf break of Punta de Lobos and the idyllic Australian point break of Noosa have been officially declared the 9th and 10th World Surfing Reserves, respectively.
