I grew up windsurfing on an island off Brazil and followed my twin sister, Monica, to Perth for more ocean adventures.
Around 2012, thanks to my sister again, my love story with SUP started on a red 9’ fish tale Starboard. Since then, SUP surfing is one of my favourite things to do. I progressed to smaller boards and better rails, and then started to compete and explore different waves around the globe.
Whenever it’s half decent conditions, I will go sup surfing or downwinding. I have made some good friends through paddling and really enjoy working at the best SUP shop in Australia!
If you think you see Silvia everywhere - just know she's got a twin sister...
