Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
I have been longboarding for two years and half, I started longboarding just for fun.
What’s your favorite trick or thing to do on a board and why?
The old school varial flip, I like that feeling when i see my longboard flip under me and I use my two legs together.
How did longboarding change you as a person?
First make me happier. Help me go wherever I want and feel pleasure and freedom and also make me meet and recognize new friends.
Do you currently have a sponsor? How did that happen?
I currently ride for Alternative Longboards, Shark Wheels, I reached out to these companies and offered them my video and asked for support and they accepted.
What are the benefits or perks of being sponsored?
Allows me to ride with the best equipment, and to do anything I want without being afraid of breaking it.
Do you have an everyday board, the board that you always ride with? Why this particular board?
Alternative EGRET ( WOOD + SIDEWALL ) : it’s the best board I have ever ridden, great dance partner ( 110cm / 43.30″ ) super awesome for freestyle because it’s very light and with the kick tails that will let you pump her up comfortably.
What’s your favorite nourishment after a session?
Take fruit juice and watch the sunset at the beach.
Do you have someone in longboarding or skateboarding you look up to?
Yeah, a lot! In longboarding, I was inspired by Hans Wouters, Aboubakry Seck, Jeffrey Oldenkamp, Jaemin Lee, Camilo Cespedes
How did this person affect the way you longboard?
They all different styles that I love, I try to use their methods to extract my own style.
If given a chance to meet this person what would you ask them, what would you want to talk about?
If I meet Hans Wouters or Jeffrey Oldenkamp I would ask them to teach me all no comply variation and flip tricks.
Describe briefly what do you do outside longboarding?
What are your struggles right now?
I want to have my own camera equipment but I have not got any job or help to do that but I’m trying.
