6 in stock




“After the storm comes the calm” is an expression used in the Portuguese language, that expresses the idea that after a troubled period comes the calm (bonanza – bonança), establishing a parallelism with the world of navigation: At sea, great storms are followed by periods of tranquility, where it’s easier to navigate.

Here, the idea is to overcome the waves (wood cylinders). Using the wooden stick to push the cylinders, one by one, without dropping the boat. Ideal to play alone or with company. In the end, wins who takes the last wave, without droping the boat from the board.
