My dream started when I was 15 years old. All that I want was to become a professional b​odyboarder, travel around the world, and move to Hawaii. During that time, bodyboarding was popular in Brazil, and my father gave me a Morey Boogie Match 7-7 for Christmas. After that Christmas, my journey inside the world of sport began. I moved to Floriano​polis, in south Brazil, where I competed as an amateur, and later, I became professional. I made many friends. I met wonderful professionals inside the world of sport who believed in my dream and helped me to train hard to achieve my goals. 

My first trip to Hawaii was during the 1999-2000 winter when I was still an amateur. I attended some competitions in the World Tour for a few years, and in 2002, I fell in love with sport psychology. In 2005, I moved to Hawaii. In 2007, I got married, and I was blessed with a partner to help me achieve my dreams. From 2008 to 2017 my biggest dream became true, I traveled around the globe to compete in the Bodyboarding World Tour, and it was a memorable journey, a priceless experience that shaped the person I am today. Right now, I am setting new goals for my career as a sport consultant and future sport psychologist, but I need to ask you: 

Competitions

Competitions are not easy and can be a source of stress to many athletes. On the other hand, competitions give us an opportunity to learn multiple life skills such as time management and learning to live by our goals and not guided by our emotions.

Bodyboarding for fun

It is all about passion for our sport and constantly reconnecting with this passion. Bodyboarding for fun is about catching waves free of “shoulds” and “musts.” It is about “I do it because I love.”

Training

My training consists of swimming workouts, strength training, and yoga. This is the same training that some professionals developed for me many years ago, and today, it is being adapted according to my needs.
