After 38 trips around the sun, when I close my eyes and dig into my most profound memories, I find the happiest ones being from my beach days in Itajaí, a city in the South of Brazil where I was born. The beach has always been something special to me, and this book is my way of celebrating the beach experience with you.
A Day at PB Drive is the result of over five years (2018-2023) of experiencing Pacific Beach in San Diego. More precisely, the surf spot at the end of Pacific Beach Drive called “PB Drive” by the locals. I had over half a million photos from that spot, the majority of which captured surfers in action. Yet, in between the cool surf tricks and funny wipeouts, I stumbled upon moments that captured my attention. I discovered occasions that made me feel hopeful, happy, stoked, sad, peaceful, and angry. All feelings that make and connect us as humans. But the most memorable times I have photographed are the ones that brought me back to those days at Atalaia Beach as a kid.
