A wave every ten minutes. And it ain't a wave pool!
Who doesn’t love novelty? A new board, a loose pair of shoes, a tight pussy (or ass), a different wave?
The joint pictured, Gasolines, is a shreddable little left created by the commuter ferries that ply the Tejo River between the crummy old fishing town of Barreiro and the Portuguese capital Lisbon.
Every morning, between seven and ten am, the ferries leave Barreiro Port, hit the juice, and, depending on the tide and the wind, create a wake that foils down a gorgeous, if hard to read, sandbank. The size of the wave depends on the speed, the boat and how many commuters are on it.
“Sometimes there’s no wave at all and sometimes they turn into Pipeline,” the German surfer Nico von Rupp told Surfline.
In this clip, we see the Portuguese surfer Joao Kopke snatch a runner underneath his pal who looks like the bell boy sent off for a toothbrush for his master.
#gasoline is a wave that happens due to a huge boat that takes people from #barreiro to #lisbon. Everyone that’s in the boat is going to work and the wave size that the boats generates (you have one every 10min during two hours) varies according to the number of people that are going to work. A full loaded boat generates a bigger wave! But there’s a lot of other elements to have in mind if you want to surf this river wave generated by this boats, like tides and winds… We (me and @joaokopke ) had the pleasure to be guided by Ricardo “P1”, the guy who discovered this amazing phenomenon. So, while, #portugal was in a flat spell this day, we scored perfect and long lefts in a river! And of course I had to drone it to get the best angle! #mavicpro #ridingportugal @wsl @kswaveco @tapairportugal @gasoline_acd
