Where?

Do we still need to introduce the Azores? Most will have seen footage of it over the years, a lucky few might even have traveled there and surfed its incredible spots. Right in the middle of the Atlantic, the archipelago consists of green, volcanic islands, much-like a European Hawaii and boasts a coastline battered by swells from all directions.
