How, when and where did you start skimboarding?

I started skimboarding because of the influence of my uncles. They used to practice and I fell in love with it. I was 7 years old when I first tried at Sununga beach.

Could you tell us more on your local skim scene?

Sununga is a beach located in Ubatuba, Brazil, and it's one of the best skimboard places in the world. It's famous for its sider, that allows to ride the entire beach in one single wave! It's also famous for the beauty of the place and the kindness of the locals. Every skimboarder in the world dreams of coming to Sununga and it's my little piece of heaven!

 If I say “skimquest”, what does it mean to you?

I dont know sorry...

eg. We will show an old VHS to Julia...

 

 

Who is your Skim idol and why?

My idol is local skimboarder Renato Lima who is considered one of the best in the world, he is a monster. I grew up seeing him do things, I thought impossible. Renato is also a really nice and friendlly guy. He is definitely my inspiration.

What is your best skim memory?

My best memory is when I went to Angola for a contest with riders from sununga, and people from all over the world. I was invited by Kalemba Skim, a social group who organizes and helps the development of skimboard in Angola. I met so many people there and it was the best time of my life !

How, when and where did you start skimboarding?

When surfing was banned at Recife because of shark' attacks, the solution was to slide with ​bodyboard on the shore. That's how I started skimboarding without knowing it.

Could you tell us more on your local skim scene?

Since we've had shark attacks, there's normally no one at the beach which make easier to skim...But sometimes there are fishermen with rods that limit our space.

 

 If I say “skimquest”, what does it mean to you?

ed. We will show an old VHS to Bruno...

Who is your Skim idol and why?

Blair Conklin because he flows like a feather whenever he's skimming, no one does it like him.

 

What is your best skim memory?

The first time I went to Sununga! I had the chance to meet some great athletes there.

Where would you go to skim?

The Wedge and Cabo San Lucas

 

How do you imagine the future of skimboarding?

I imagine that becoming as important as WSL. It may take a while, but we'll get there. I believe that everything will depend on the union between skimboarders and also between skim brands.
