Brenno Brelvis - Having the Paris Crew in São Pedro da Aldeia—the town I was born in and still live—was an incredible experience. Showing them skate spots that I've been skating since the beginning, making an amazing event together and motivating the local longboard community. It was super cool.
The best part of the trip was introducing the crew to all my local friends and the people who support me. The places in the village that help me out, like my barber, Barbearia do Canhão , who actually gave me and Ricker a shave!
I took the crew to have the best desserts in the world at the one and only, Johnny Brownie. They couldn’t believe the desserts they made for us. They’re were so good!
The moment the crew boarded a canoe and paddled into the lagoon to watch the sunset was pretty funny. It was so spontaneous. They didn't have a clue what they were doing. I thought we were going to be lost at sea.
Camilo Cespedes - The last time I was in Brazil was around 6 years ago. Ever since I've been wanting to go back. This time my experience was totally different. I got to see way more this time. The place that blew my mind the most was the abandoned factory. We spent like 4 hours there but I could’ve easily spent a week. The possibilities were infinite! Stay tuned for some magic from that session.
That was a blast! Between all the adventures, the event we hosted was awesome. Mini games, a skatepark contest, a longboard contest and so much more. It was a full day meeting everyone from the entire town! We also met one of the raddest girl’s in the world who joined the Paris Trucks Team that day. Kimberly! I always told her she has skills! !
Kimberly Lorena - Man, that was surreal! I already knew that Ryan had been watching me on social media for awhile but I couldn't imagine that it would all happen so soon, you know? At the end of the contest he called me over to talk, that’s when he gave me a Paris Truck Co. "Team" Windbreaker and told me a little bit about what the Paris Team is all about. That's when he asked me to be a part of it! I just cried. I was very, very happy!
