3 times freestyle champ Ricardo Campello has been seen in Maui driving around in a "Grace Church" van. The first thoughts were that he had signed some new sponsor, but it turns out it was the best bargain on the island. The long wheel bas Dodge Ram 3500 is a beast of a van and he must have plenty of room inside for all his toys. Petrol costs cant be that great though!

The Brazilian team are out in force this year. Kauli, Brawzinho and Ricardo, plus at least another 10 kids from both Jeri and Ibericera. Rumor has it that they are sharing a big house, so we hate to imagine what its like in there! They are apparently ripping though, training hard at both waves and freestyle. After taking both the wave and freestyle titles last year, it looks like it could be another good year for Brazil.
