Meet Fearless 14-Year-Old João Mendonça

By on

Meet João Mendonça aka, Portugal's most promising grom who doesn't know the meaning of the word fear. This lad's been charging all winter and spending a lot of time with fellow Portuguese slab wrangler, Nic Von Rupp.

“Whenever he’s in the water, nobody stays indifferent, he’s a natural talent and we’re all looking at him as the next big name from Portugal,” says filmer Pedro Miranda. “This is the kid's first proper core-clip, and I believe it won’t be the last.”

The video was produced and edited by friend and filmmaker, Hugo Almeida (@hugoalmeida) who’s been following João Mendonça for a while.
