TELL US YOUR STORY ABOUT WINDSURFING:
I’ve grown up in the town of Buzios, a fisherman village and paradise for water sports 2 hours north of Rio de Janeiro.
I was surrounded by the ocean since I was born, windsurfing, riding boats, fishing and surfing with my friends and family, but it was in SUP Racing that I’ve found the love for competition and started to use what I’ve learned in all my time on the water to win races.
SUP has given me the opportunity to travel to amazing places to compete, meet a lot of interesting people and some times even sneak into a windsurf, surf or kite session after the races ;) hahah
