Claudia, how long have you been surfing?
I surf since I have started walking – But as a Professional surfer over 15 years.

Where is your favourite surfspot?
Favorite spot for surfing I would say Indonesia and Hawaii.

Best city/place to live on earth and why?
I like Rio de Janeiro because it’s beauty and I like to be surrounded by my people and culture.

What is your passion?
The Ocean.

If you had to pick two surfers, dead or alive, to surf with. Who would they be and where would you go?
I have 3 to say. Rob Machado, Gerry Lopez and Leah Dawson. Anywhere. They are my Idols in the surf community inside and out of the water.

Which are your favourite boards and why?
Stretch surfboards cause they are so versatile I have boards from Stretch from 5’0 until 10’0. Performances board for everyday, retro boards, twin, single, Step off boards, tow in boards and Guns. So I have the best equipment for all the surf conditions 🙂
