We all know that Skateboarding was born during the flat days in California and all its origin comes from Surfing… But each and every day, skateboarding is getting more close to its “creator”. And that’s exactly what Adriano Sakumoto is offering on his goFlow Experience, introducing an equipment that he is calling “Surf Simulator”. It’s like surfing, but on dry and solid surfaces. We are pleased to introduce you to the Street Surfing and to one of our magnificent Local Experts from São Paulo. Read more
Here is something that you’ve probably never heard of! goFlow introduces the skateboarder Alexandre Feliz and his Extreme Freestyle!
After a serious knee injury, Alexandre Feliz, a true Carioca (Rio local), had to find a different path on his skateboarding career. What he did was invent a totally new way to ride, mixing in some of his other passions, such as climbing and always staying in contact with nature. From there, Feliz started to look for new spots to ride, tapping into his creativity and going far beyond regular surfaces like streets or ramps, slopes and handrails. All resulting in creation of something that he calls “Extreme Freestyle”.
Essentially, this new style allows you to ride on any surface, be it stone, sand, clay and, of course, cement and still be connected with the flow, enjoying different natural landscapes everyday. Read more
