How and why did you start kiteboarding?
I saw kiteboarding for the first time here at Barra Grande and i fell in love with the sport! I had the opportunity with some friends to try. For me the material for kite was a lot of money, and like more in Brazil, my family didn't have the ability to give me a kite. But I had the luck of those friends helping me with boards, kites and other things. I love this amazing sport and especially freestyle!

I won the 2nd edition of Duotone Grom Search - 2019 at Gauipe Lagoon in Brazil with all freestyle Duotone team riders watching. It was a big dream come true for me! I'm really happy to be part of the family, I think it´s every young athlete's dream, that was amazing.
