What outdoor activity do you do? Let us know a bit about it

I’m a professional jet ski Freerider or otherwise known as a motosurfer.

The freeride category on the jet ski began fifteen years ago. Basically, it’s a mixture of freestyle and jet ski surfing. Riders have to devise aerial maneuvers, such as backflips and use the waves as if they were ramps. The jet ski is like the bike or a board. The judges evaluate the difficulty and how precise someone is in a variety of maneuvers.

I started because my father loves motorsports and really pushed me into a few motorsports. When I got a chance to try out jet skiing I was hooked from the start.

Additionally, besides my father, my whole entire family have supported me along the way.

How did you get into the sport?

My father always loved motorsports and when I was 10 he put me into a go-kart. Unfortunately, at the time it didn’t work out very well. When I turned 15 my dad organized a Jet ski competition in my town which sparked my interest.

Not long after I got a jet ski as a gift and started practicing. In my first Bahian Championship, I came sixth overall. The following year, I went to the Brazilian and got second place amongst the “Rookies”.
I realized I had a talent and after that, I was hooked. I migrated to Freeriding which is the fastest growing category and since then I have won a few international titles.


All the trips are very important to me. Especially when I have fun with my friends around the world.

My favorite trick is the Scarecrow, that is a roll with the jet ski while not holding onto the bars with your hand’s and having one leg off and extended as well

My favorite gear is Fly Racing

My favorite location is Brazil. I train in Barra do Jacuípe, in the city of Camaçari, in Bahia.

In this town, there is a marina, where we also have a shop, in which we manufacture and sell jet-hulls, and have a jet ski school.

I’m the vice-world champion IFWA 2016. Additionally to that in my first year, I was runner-up “Rookie” in Brazil which in made me realize I had quite the talent in the sport.

All the trips are very important to me. Especially when I have fun with my friends around the world.

What are you striving towards in the future?

I wanna see that sport grow and grow more everywhere!


He might not have gotten into Go-karting but fortunately, he found his calling in Jet skiing where obviously he is excelling. We wish Bruno a bright future in the sport and if you are interested in connecting more with Bruno check out his pages below.
