He began surfing under the influence of his older brother Francisco Ordonhas and soon joined him as one of the most promising names of the youngest generation of Portuguese surfers. His routine is typical of a teenager passionate about his hobby, escaping to the beach everyday right after school. Like most kids his age, Frederico has a hero: Griffin Colapinto. "I love his style and he's always smiling", he justifies. A daydreamer by nature, he keeps mindsurfing Snapper Rocks all the time, all by himself. Out of the water, Fred enjoys riding his skateboard and learning math, his favorite subject at school.
