The Inertia

Davi Teixeira’s smile is contagious. The 13-year-old from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil was born with a congenital birth defect called Amniotic Band Syndrome. He hasn’t let the condition stop him, though, from achieving his surf and skateboarding dreams.

The kid’s been given the moniker Radical Davizinho for his fearlessness and willpower and as a newly minted teen, Davizinho already has an adaptive world title to his name.

Davizinho’s even got fellow Brazilian champ, Gabriel Medina, in his corner.

We challenge you not to smile watching this heartwarming profile on the Brazilian phenom.


Only the best. We promise.
