"I surf because it makes all problems disappear and you realize that what really matters is you and the ocean.”
With a radical, fast and at the same time relaxed style of surfing Filipe Jervis is one of the biggest talents of Portugal’s new generation of super surfers. If you believe it or not, even though Filipe got European Pro Junior Vice Champion, third at European Pro Juniors and fifth at National Pro Juniors among others, he is no fan of competitions. Instead he loves to travel in the search for the best waves around the world. As a free surfer he is basically living the dream of every one who really loves surfing.
Still, he will participate at the Portuguese national championships to sharpen his surfing. We say, Filipe does not have to win any contest to proof himself, to us he is a champion already. Mica knows Filipe since he was a super polite grom surfer at the age of twelve. He followed Filipes development ever since and therefor truly understands his surfing, what brings the best requirements to build the perfect surfboard.
