A Brazilian beauty and self proclaimed “chocoholic,” Claudia is making waves in the surf world and beyond. With only a few years of surfing under her belt, she found early fame on the Brazilian Juniors Circuit and moved up in the international ranks, emerging victorious at the very prestigious Rip Curl Boardmasters in England in 2006 and landing a top 20 ranking on the World Qualifying Surf Tour.
With a strong interest in journalism and a big role in increasing exposure for womens surf athletes, Claudia started her own Brazilian surf magazine, Ehlas, as managing editor. She recently completed her university degree in journalism with a vision to expand her skills both in and out of the water.
