Flow with River! For me life is all about flow and the ocean is one of our greatest teachers. I started surfing 3 years ago when I first moved to California and I instantly fell in love! I do all sorts of hobbies like traveling, skateboarding, rock climbing, but surfing has always had my heart. I Surfed up and down the coast and I grew to love the process and the growth, every time I catch another wave I feel more and more alive. I also love to teach.

The Early Days of Skateboarding
It is said that skateboarding was first developed by surfers near Santa Monica, CA during the 1950s. The popularity of the television show Gidget caused a massive surf craze in Southern California and surfing enthusiasts were looking for a way to surf when the waves were flat.

Claudio, Advanced Skater
having grown up in South America near the sea marked my life, I didn't have the opportunity to start surfing until I was 15 years old, but I learned how to swim with my mom in this small town with giant waves called Pichilemu. When I finally had my first surf lesson in the sea, I knew that was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. So I bought everything I need to be in the water and learn to surf.
