Due to visa troubles, Chippa Wilson has been stranded in Brazil for the past year. He’s gotten really tan in the process and his reddish blond hair has turned to a deep, deep brown.
OK, that’s not true. But I’ll be damned if Brazil’s Icaro Rodrigues doesn’t surf exactly like the Aussie flyweight.
This video furthers the lore of Brazil as the hotbed of unknown, incredible talent. Icaro is better in the air than the majority of the CT, and he ain’t too bad on rail, either.
There are a couple of seriously deranged airs in this clip, but our favorite is the massive varial at 2:14. What’s yours?
