February  2020.. Surf days  end of month 1666
It was the warmest and most sunny February in many years. A lot of good surf also. Crowds were less, but now the Corona virus started to move in on us.
I ordered a new board . A lufi 10 foot longboard. I left the design to the shaper. Letīs see what he will create.

Marts 2020.. Surf days  end of month. 1675
The  first days I surfed Beliche. Not an easy beach with a long board. believe me. i did a lot more wave reading, and that helped.
Then my new board arrived. 10 feet Lufi. First try was in Mareta. Only 1 to 2 feet waves. Much to my surprise I managed to surf these waves. It did take some hard paddling however.
Two next days still small waves. Then some bigger waves came. 3-4-5 feet. I was surfing twice that day. From line up to the beach several times. I have been surfing 10 feet boards before, this is the better of  them.
The following day the 12 of March 2020, was the last surfing day. beaches were being closed due  to the Corona virus.
So far I have been home for 4 weeks, only going out to buy essentials.

Surfing around Sagres.
I am using 10 foot LUFI board now. It is different to start down the wave on such a long board. It seem that some times some angling is needed, but so far the board has been a positive surprise
