Background check: I was born in Venezuela but when I was 8 months, my family decided to move to Bocas del Toro , Panama by governance issues and natural disasters in Venezuela , my dad and my brother surfed so They choose to go there because it was where were the best waves in Panama , have lived in Bocas almost 17 years, my dad makes surfboards and my mom has a restaurant. I started to surf four years ago because before I did not like it but seeing my brother flying and winning made me want to try it and now I can not be out of the water.
