The next title contender for 2013 is Brawzinho...this 24 year old has been in and around the top for years now and is without a doubt one of, if not the, most impressive sailors to watch outside of competition. But can he pull it together in the tricky Canary Island conditions?


Sail No: BRA105

Age: 24

Height: 188 cm

Weight: 84 kg

Where have you been training over the winter?

Maui and Chile.

What special equipment will you have for Pozo?

i will have the Banzais from 3.4 up to 5.7 and I will be using quads, maybe I will also ride twin fins a bit.

What event are you most looking forward to on the tour this year and why?

Probably Pozo and Tenerife, i really have a lot of fun there and they are the warmest! Chile also sounds like it will be great, I have never sailed Topocalma on a good day so I am looking forward to it.

What is your biggest strength?

I am not sure, maybe that I am consistent on a few moves?

What can you do that you think will score the highest with the judges this year?

If the conditions are right I would like to try some push loop forwards .

Who is your biggest rival?

All the boys are very hard to beat I would say, but on the tour with those conditions Phillip probably the hardest.

But guys like Victor, Ricardo, Swifty , Dany Bruch, Mussolini ... they are all amazing and sailing at such a close level.

And who else would you like to see on the PWA tour that could make it to the top?

Kauli Seadi and Levi Siver for sure , especially in a place like Chile , would be great to see those guys ripping there.
