Daniel Rangel’s Instagram handle, @foamball_unicorn, features an eloquent quote from Maya Angelou: “You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them”. Now, in the greater context of societal strife, that has deep meaning. But taken literally in this situation, it proves that Rangel is one tough dude. And furthermore, he’s a really talented rider of waves.
He likes to surf a heavy slab near Rio, in his home country, known as the Gardenal Slab. Thing is a beastly-looking left not to be trifled with. Check out Rangel’s Instagram story where it looks like he took a beating recently, dislocating a shoulder. And you can see more of Rangel, below:
