SURFING’s Lost Sections Dept: Ricardo Wendhausen

posted by / News / September 23, 2010

The reality of Taylor Steele’s Innersection is that most segments won’t make the movie; the latest round alone saw 54 entries. SURFING would like to pay our respects to some of our favorite, under-appreciated entries that you can no longer see on Innersection. These surfers are just supporting actors now, but by next year, any one could have a leading role.

Is it a strange strategy when a surfer lands about 50% of the maneuvers in his section? I mean, it’s video, right? Wouldn’t you just…well, nevermind. Ricardo Wendhausen kinda makes it work in this section. He’s obviously insanely talented. Possibly mentally insane, as well, but in the good Christian Fletcher v. Joe Crimo v. Josh Sleigh-insane sorta way. Right? It occurs to us we know way too little about Mr. Wendhausen. Do we have to wait for him to land that kickflip before we find out. Maybe. Is Volcom still holding his money? Maybe not. Somebody get director Bruno Bez and Ricardo on the phone to ‘splain what’s exactly going on here. We like it, even if we don’t understand it.

    Ricardo is a talented surfer born in the city of Florianopolis, Brazil.Fine Skater too, as we see in your surfing. His a crazy He is a crazy, incredibly cool, a lot of people who could charm the world with her surf. It is very likely need a sponsor to him more attention, but the most important thing about them is their desire to innovate and create, through a classic line. Adventuring is not designed for tricks and style and versatility give the other most common. Bruno Bez, born in the same city and skateboarder, is a visionary with unmatched talent, passionate about liquid ramp’s with the greater desire to transform the surfing of your friends (like Ricardo, Gustavo Schilikmann, Fernando Moura, and others) and their own surfing in pure art. Many things will happen beyond that kickflip.

    That was rad! It’s sick cause he looks like he’s got the steez of a skater when he lands his manuevers. Was that a friggin varial flip he was trying!?! That will be mind blowing when one of those is landed on a surfboard.
