Rider Bio
My name is Thiago Duarte and I'm from Brazil. I grew up in Belo Horizonte and began longboard when I turned 13. I lived in the suburbs and it helped me develop my skating, jumping stairs, handrails, flips and all skating in my childhood was very good. When I went to college it awakened my interest in longboarding and it started when I went to my first event. From there my main goal was to try to attend more and more races, make new friends, and see wonderful places around the world. The best part of longboarding is the friends I have met who have helped build my team (MGDownhill). We are a team of friends who want to have fun on skateboards all day! Today I am president of the federation of Minas Gerais Downhill skateboarding, working with the organization of races is really hard work, but it is done for the growth of the local scene. In 2012 I became a certified professional by the Brazilian confederation of skateboarding and my objective is to participate in all national events, and IGSA stages that will happen in my neck of the woods. Soon I would like to meet my new friends in the North America! I want to represent my sponsors well, always seeking to be faster and to never forget to have fun on my skateboard!
