Vasco Cordeiro

  • Vasco Cordeiro -

Vasco Cordeiro cannot imagine his life without sports. He was into swimming, tennis and futsal before becoming a surfer at the age of 9, the only sports he could not get enough of. A Carcavelos local, Vasco took part in his first surfing contest only 5 moths after standing up on a surfboard for the first time. As part of the APS trainee team, he manages to fit classes, surfing and physical training all in one agenda. In 2019 we'll see him going after the national and European pro juniors rankings with a little glimpse into Liga Meo. And although he sets Jordy Smith a part from everyone else when it comes to high performance surfing, Vasco has only one true hero: Kikas.
