How big is the surf today?

I'm looking for a hotel. Can you recommend a good place to stay?
Estou a procura de um hotel. Pode me recomendar um bom lugar para ficar?

Which way to the Billabong Rio Pro?

Have you seen Kelly Slater?

Maya, can I get your autograph please?

Hey gorgeous, do you believe in love at first sight, or shall I walk past you again?
