I used to think that every surfer did their best work outside of a jersey, and for most that’s still surely true. But for Filipe and his fellow Brazilian Stormers? It seems like they’re always saving their wildest hail marys for the judges. Case in point: Filipe’s Gold Coast highlight reel above. You’ll find the kid spinning full rotors and threading tubes left and right, and the mastery on display is unquestionably impressive. But, holy hell, that opening punt from the Red Bull Airborne shows just how much Filipe elevates his game when there are heats to be made.
