Junior Faria

I'm 25 years old and I was born and raised in Guaruj√° - Brasil. Since 10 I competed in amateur events, national and international and I've been a pro surfer since I was 17. I can't complain much about my career as a pro surfer. I had the chance to travel around the globe for more than 8 years, competing the world tour and specially, freesurfing professionaly for almost 3 years. I've had some good results throughout those years and probably the best one would be finishing ASP's World Tour One Ranking in the 49th position in 2011 (almost qualified, bummer). I write for Hardcore Magazine (a Brazilian surf mag, not porn, by the way), and I've been taking writing and journalism more seriously. Next year I'm going to University to study Journalism and take a turn in my professional life since things in Brasil don't look very good for freesurfers (even for those who can actually surf properly).
