Gasoline – die perfekte Fährwelle in Portugal


Schon mal was von dem Spot “Gasoline” in Portugal gehört? Wahrscheinlich nicht, aber die Welle im Fluss Tejo gehört sicherlich zu den besten “Ferrywaves” überhaupt. Generiert durch die Bugwelle einer Schnellfähre, die zwischen Barreiro und Lissabon pendelt. Je nach Beladung und Geschwindigkeit kann hier eine perfekte kleine Welle entstehen. Ähnlich wie in Warnemünde kann man sich so auf die Minute genau ins Wasser setzen. In einem 2 Stunden-Fenster (wegen der Tide) kommt alle 10 Minuten eine Welle. Entdeckt hat den Spot der local Surfer  Ricardo “P1” und er hat Joao Kopke und seinen Kollegen von White Flag Productions mitgenommen. Wir sind schwer begeistert!


#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
