Reubyn Ash in Portugal

By on

The Runaway series is a documentation of Reubyn Ash's trips from 2013, including Indonesia, Chile, California, France, Portugal and Spain and UK.

Episode 4 follows a trip Reubyn did last year in Portugal. After living in a van with his girlfriend for almost two months in Europe, he has put together a little movie from each of these countries.

"I decided to head to Portugal for couple of weeks with my friend Nic von Rupp who I did a trip to Chile with in the earlier part of the year. Nic was also filming for his "My Road" project with a great surfer Maxime Huscenot, so we decided to travel together and check the best surfing spots from north to middle Portugal," says Reubyn.

"We didn’t really stay anywhere more than two nights on this road trip, because waves were quite small almost everywhere. We checked the beaches around Figueira da Foz, Sines, Nazare and Peniche. It wasn’t as hectic hunting the waves like in Chile, but still we were getting a little desperate driving around without finding anything decent. Luckily, the forecasts finally started looking better for the south. I think I had the most fun surfs around Peniche. We found a good right sand bank that was really fun. Most of the waves of this episode have been filmed from around there."
