Surfer Profile: Filipe Toledo

Last updated:

The next best Brazilian surfer to Medina, Toledo has an incredible talent of surfing in the air at full speed, coupled with inordinate amounts of confidence.

Filipe’s performance at JBay over the last two years have totally redefined how that perfect point break should be surfed, eclipsing even Jordy Smith’s previous performances.

Toledo has a minor weakness in his big wave experience, but this comes with time and before you know it he will be charging with the best.
