ADRIANO DE SOUZA
Komunity Project is excited to announce the signing of the 2015 WSL World Champion, Adriano De Souza. "Adriano is going to be a key part of our South American expansion, along with Wiggolly Dantas and Silvana Lima," said Paul Munten, CEO Komunity Project.
Komunity Project is proud to announce the signing of WSL Tour surfer, Bede Durbidge. As a former Pipeline Master and Triple Crown winner, Bede brings plenty of experience to the team as we look forward to working closely on future product development.
It's been a lifelong goal for Wiggolly to join the elite ranks on the WSL. In 2014, he did just that and qualifed for the big leagues. Look for a signature traction pad in the works for the near future.
Coming from humble beginnings, from the municipality of Paracuru, Brazil, Silvana learned to surf at age 7. Her first surfing experience was on top of rectangular-shaped piece of wood.
Fast forward 20 years later and Silvana is at the forefront of women’s progressive surfing. Her innovative approach on tour netted her the first 10 point ride of 2015 with a massive air reverse at the Roxy Pro. Silvana will continue to push the limits as she vies for her first World Title. #VieSilvana
