How do your friends call you?
Flow

You have been surfing since 2000, do you have a favorite surfspot?
Hookipa, Maui

Which is your favorite board?
my 6'1 Kazuma

Flo, who or what inspires you?
The people arround me and the ones that follow their passion. For me being in the water in general feels good, and if I have some kind of board under my feet it gets even better!

If you had to pick two surfers, dead or alive, to go surf with. Who would they be and where would you go?
I would just take some of my buddies from the tour and would probably search for some hidden spots in Chile where no one is around.

Which is the best city on earth and why?
Probably Cape Town/South Africa , where I spent my winters. But I like New York as well. You get inspired with all the different cultures just at one place.

Do you have your own way of life? What do you want to achieve next?
I guess you could call me a modern gypsy ... I just try to enjoy being alive and stay healthy. After an injury I want to get back to the top and finish my film production at the end of the year.

Is there something more you want to tell us?
Dedication is all you need!
