A frank exploration of a Brazilian favourite!
Filipe Toledo, as if you needed me to tell you, is the twenty-one-year-old Brazilian who famously took a woodcutter to Julian Wilson at last year’s Quiksilver Pro.
How can we forget Filipe’s dominance of 2015?
Filipe is also famous as the surfer who scored zero points in a heat at Teahupoo, the lowest-ever heat total in professional surfing. Was it a brave act of cowardice, as suggested on this website, or were his nerves simply shattered by a wipeout in an earlier heat?
I think it’s fair to say that Filipe owns the skies and waves under four foot.
His father, Ricardo, is awesome, too. Do you remember his blood feud with the big-wave guy Alex Gray?
This is what he told Alex via IG.
I think you this wanting suck my dick! sorry but will not give, I am well settled sexually, and besides, my wife will kill you!!! Fuck yourself…(winky smiley face sticking out tongue).
Earlier today, a seven-minute short (the internet’s equivalent of a four-hour epic) documenting Filipe’s return from injury was released.
Presiding over it all is Filipe, thoughtful, mournful, as he stares just past the camera, perhaps wondering if what the critics allege (big waves are a handicap) is true, and therefore a source of shame, or does he silently long for the day when he can again wield his woodchopper against his thunderingly boring peers?
