Hello Alexandre Grilo!
– Tell me a little about yourself, your surfing and what level you’re on?
I started surfing when I was 15 years old in Carcavelos , near Cascais to challange the fear I had of water. When I signed with my first sponsor I was supposed to go to France and compete on the juniors championship , but the day before I had a huge motorcycle accident that kept me in the hospital for 6 months. After that had a year of recovery and had to learn how to stand up again since my hands got totally smashed in the accident. One year after I moved to Ericeira and started competing in every contest I could. I’ve been up and down the rankings since that. In 2001 I moved to Morocco to start the first lapoint camp, and in 2005 I meet Sebastian and we decided to open a new camp together in Portugal.
