James Lovett L, Zap Traction pads, Sticky bumps
A custom James Lovett L with a square tail that gives it an extra surface for an extra long slide and added control and stability.
Mão Morta, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, QOTSA, Alice’n Chains, Damian Marley, Faith no More, Lauryn Hill, Pearl Jam and several other similar and not similar to the ones I mentioned previously.
My food preferences change according to the seasons of the year, if is cold I prefer heavier and greasier food, summer time salads, fruit, veggies.
Cabo, Buraco (Angola) goofy footer paradise.
Zap’s continuous effort to give skimmers the best shapes and board construction is recognised all over the world. Our happy faces and expressions while skimming are the living proof of it.
A friend of my father used to make small wooden boards during the 80′s and the name of these boards was “Go for it” and one day I grabbed one and the rest is ancient history.
Even though these 20 years of skimming have made some physical damage, I hope that in 5 years I’ll still be able to see the inside of some barrels.
Santa Skim Crew (Filipe, Zon, Márcio, Rui, Banana, Half, Brilha)
Keeping a good balance between the most important pillars of life, Family/Friends/Fun/Work. Making sure my effect on those that surround me is positive.
Mostly by the sea, spearfishing, fishing, at home I love cooking.
