An idol in Brazil and among surf crowds, he was involved in competitive professional surfing for more than 15 years with some of the world's most elite surfers. He has consecutively won for 2 years the World Qualifying Series Championship tour.

He was the first ever Brazilian to win one of the most famous World Tour events,  held in Huntington Beach, Ca . He was also crowned champion of the WCT in France by defeating his competitor, legend Andy Irons.
