Italo Ferreira (born June 6, 1994) is a Brazilian professional surfer who competes on the World Surfing League Men’s World Tour since 2015.
Hailing from a small fishing village in Baia Formosa, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil that just happens to have a reeling right hand point break in front of it, Italo Ferreira has been training for the World Tour his whole life. He’s of the previously neglected Brazilian contingent that now has taken over with a dominant presence on Tour. Italo is a massive part of this having won the Rookie of the Year award in 2015, and now, in only his second year, he’s vying for a World Title. He’s a wonder to watch in all conditions, and with a humble attitude, Italo’s not just going for a World Title for himself. He’s doing it for his country and his family. Don’t be surprised to see multiple titles from Italo.
