For those of us that follow Heitor Da Silva, it was a wonderful thing to see him go back to Brasil!
Not only did he go on tour with the /// team but he went with some legends from the largest Portuguese speaking nation.

Felipe and Rodrigo TX where shoulder to shoulder with the kid and that must feel nice- it must feel like coming home! Norway and Brasil birthed a brilliant combination on a skateboard.

This year we had our friend Thaynan Costa over who is originally from Brazil, a huge country with a very big skateboarding community. When I asked him about his favorite skater from Brazil his answer came straight shooting at me and he started to show me videos of Akira Shiroma. Doesn’t sound Portuguese at first but he is from Sao Paulo, a city with the single largest Japanese diaspora.
