Adrian Beholz and Hugo De Sousa recently hooked up for a trip into the hidden parts of Brazil, the areas we are not totally akin to. What they found were kids ripping on old second hand surfboards and beaches that may have never felt the grace of a windsurfer. Boardseeker are lucky enough to get the exclusive on their very special web clip, which features the two on their adventures and shows an incredibly high level of freestyle.
Be sure to check the paper mag of our sister site, Boards.co.uk, where you’ll see a stunning feature on their adventures.
Over to Adrian Beholz who gives us some insight into the trip and his plans this year. You can watch the video by clicking here or scroll through this feature to the last page.
The two German photographers and film makers Martin Wickenhäuser and Julian Robinet (Broken Bloke Productions) contacted me several weeks before my departure to Brazil and were really keen to work together. They planed to travel further north than most people go and invited me to join. I was more than happy to see somewhere new and so we rented a car and checked out the whole coastline between Fortaleza and Marselore.
It was a crazy adventure as we travelled all the way without a navigation system or even maps. Our last day ended in the Favelas of Fortaleza where we found a cosy surf spot and loads of young kids ripping.
It was unbelievable how different the atmosphere was at this beach compared to just one block away. Thess kids have nothing, just board shorts and an old board. But instead of thinking about achieving wealth by crime, they were ripping and peaceful souls.
