Pedro Barros is the winningest skater in competitive park/bowl history, dominating any contest he enters including our own Vans Park Series & Vans Pool Party. The Brazilian Barnstomer ate, drank and bled skateboarding and surfing since the day he was born. Tucked away in his own private skate compound on the island of Florianopolis he grew up shredding every manner of transition in his backyard without limitations. It’s there that Pedro learned to fly and, literally and figuratively, take skateboarding to new heights.
WHAT’S BEEN THE BEST TRIP YOU’VE EVER BEEN ON?
I have a few best trips, but my last one to Nicaragua was nice! I’ve had some really good times with my friends and my dad. There was good surfing and also a nice mini ramp on the beach. That was a good escape from real life!
