Congrats Silvana and I love your green board!

Runner up last year and part of a new guard of women surfers, Silvana is aggressive and exciting to watch and gave the current world champ, Steph Gilmour, a bit of a lesson at Bells the other day when she became the first Brazilian surfer ever to win the coveted trophy.
Probably helped by a fierce training regimen that includes surfing almost daily, weight training, water fitness, running and stretching and backed up by a lifelong involvement in Capoeira, the Brazilian martial art that's known for its fluid strong movement.
I am looking forward to seeing some more of that trademark green rocketship she rides as the year progresses.
