I started surfing when I was 9 and did my very first competition a couple months after. I loved it!!!!

Since than I never stopped. Being in the ocean was one of the greatest things I experienced, and still love and feel so free out there.

I have a couple goals, one is to qualify to the CT and be a world champion one day, the other is to represent Portugal at the highest level at the Olimpics.

I work very hard and I'm so passionate about what I do.

Born and raised in the south of Portugal, I moved to Sines( 1 hour south of Lisbon) when I was 19 years old until now. I'm turning 23 years old on the 2nd of June and I've been surfing since I was 8 years old. Surfing is my passion and I want to get to the World Tour and make a living out of it... I train every day, in and out of the water. I surf at least twice a day no matter the conditions. I have really big hopes to make it into the first olympics that surfing is gonna be part of it!  I'm here and I'm really to smash it!
