Speed, power, huge air, and full of surprises, Luiz Francisco is quickly becoming a fan favorite to watch rip in a bowl. Carrying the classic amount of Brazilian speed into aggressive grinds, it is no surprise to hear that another unknown ripper has risen out of the land of the Amazon. With very little known of Francisco prior to 2016, when the Vans Park Series held the 2017 National Championships he had no intention of letting his opportunity slip by. Francisco crushed qualifiers and then carried it on thru the final to win it all. A few months later Vans Park Series saw him again when he claimed 2nd at America’s Continental Championships. Still finding his name in the leaderboards, Francisco has started popping up in major contests in the States such as Tampa Am the Vans Combi Pool Classic. Now it is simply a matter of time before he finds his feet on and around every major podium.
