SKATEBOARD AND MUSIC ALWAYS LINKED
With a very peculiar style, he was one of the percussors of the modern skateboarding in Niteroi, at a time when the city of Rio de Janeiro was lacking in talent. Jr. stood out as a great promise, with a lot of technique and a unique skateboarding style, Jr. always skated best in transitions, even if he did not have many of them available to skate in his city. he also didn't do too bad on street skate. Never wanted to compete cause it did not like the vibe, however, ripped during the free sessions in any place that went. Jr. is now dedicated to graphic design, and lends all his talent to Dreamin '.
