Rafael “Rafa” Silva throughout this year of 2017 has shown great progress in his surfing.

All this is reflected by his consistency and attitude in their day-to-day practice stipulated. Already with some finals in the regional sub-14 of the Central Circuit and Greater Lisbon, Rafa, reached an even more expressive result. For me it was very positive to see him get 3rd place at Grom Search on Costa da Caparica, competing with the cream of the national surf of his generation.

However, altough in Peniche’s Grom Search 1 month ago he only reached the semi-finals in 5th place, his free surf sessions have been more and more tuned, showing a more mature and defined surf.
