Rodrigo comes from Osasco, São Paulo, Brazil. He is 30 years old and has been skating for 15 years. Rodrigo is a skater that shows no fear and is able to do extremely technical tricks down insane obstacles, leaving spectators baffled. He tends to win best trick competitions and has been mentioned in international skate media for his technical skating abilities. In 2013 he won Skater of the Year in Brazil which is a testament to his skill as a skateboarder.
We met Rodrigo at the 2013 Mystic Skate Cup in Prague and gave him a PROSK8 deck to try out. He skated the deck for a while and got back to us saying that it was the best deck he had ever skated. Shortly thereafter he made plans to join the PROSK8 team and now together with William Damascena he is proudly helping us carry out our mission.
Rodrigo also runs his own skate shop in São Paulo and helps the community around him by hosting competitions and sponsoring local riders. We are very pleased to have Rodrigo on the team and look forward to supporting his career as well as providing you all with some great footage of his madness!
