Eduardo Galindo

  • Eduardo Galindo -

Eduardo was 7 years old when he entered a surfing competition for the first time. He did not make it, but still, he knew that was something he wanted to do for years to come. Today, you'll need most of your fingers to count the number of times he stepped on a podium in regional and national competitions. He’s got his father (a windsurf, kitesurf and SUP aficionado) to thank for his early and regular contact with the ocean, which has contaminated him with the surf bug forever. A scar on his boyish face, the result of an unexpected bump against Ericeira’s relentless rock bottom, will forever attest his passion for wave riding. Like most kids his age Galindo has a hero, Kelly Slater, and a dream: qualifying for the WSL World Tour.
