Meet Brazilian longboard skater Ana Maria Suzano, and prepare to have your mind blown. What this girl can do on a longboard, which is essentially a faster version of a skateboard, is truly unbelievable. She skates. She dances. She rocks!
According to Guanabara Longboard, the skating collective and school in Rio de Janeiro that published the video, Ana Maria has been making history in the sport (and art) of board skating since 2012 when she was just 15. Her ability to blend crazy technical skills with softness creates a super cool mashup of jaw droppingly graceful moves.
Check her out in this video (circa July 2013)…
PS – And like every great champion, when Ana Maria takes a fall, she gets right back up with a smile, and tries again.
