Jadson Andre constantly seeks improvement. Whether it’s his English, his mental game or his backside attack, the master airsman from Natal City, Brazil isn’t going to settle for anything less than exceptional. Runner-up performances at the 2008 Billabong World Junior Championships and the Oakley Pro Junior North Stradbroke only fueled the lanky goofy-footer to go even bigger which resulted in a spot on the media’s radar. Since qualifying for the ASP World Tour in 2010, he’s remained one of the most dynamic guys in every event. He fully established himself as a deserving contender during his rookie season, when he won the Billabong Pro Santa Catarina by defeating none other than Kelly Slater in the final.
