Board Splash Out with Gabriel Fortunato.

Board Splash Out

Mar 232018

Board Splash Out is a video project that was filmed in the streets of São Paulo featuring two of Brazil’s biggest names in action sports, Yago Dora and Gabriel Fortunato.

The video starts with Yago expressing his love for skate, but unlike surf, he shares that he is not able to leave a trail behind every trick. To Yago’s surprise - using fire, smoke and powder, Gabriel leaves a trail behind every skate trick just as a surfer does when he leaves a splash trail behind every carve in the ocean. This video project mixes surf and skate in an artistic way to showcase how two completely different action sports could share a common element.

Passionate street skater, Gabriel Forunato, is one of the biggest names of his generation of Brazilian skaters. Gabriel has participated in world renowned competitions such as the DEW Tour in Los Angeles, and Nike AM Series in Barcelona. In addition, he is a potential name for the Brazil delegation for the upcoming Tokyo Games in 2020.


Born in Santa Catarina, 21 year-old Yago Dora was a latecomer in Brazilian surf but soon became one of the biggest breakout stars in 2017, conquering his first victory and joining the elite in surf. Specializing in free surf, Yago has earned his spot in World Surf League and has gained international respect by becoming one of the best surfers to come out of Brazil.


Board Splash Out is the first of four videos that will be released by Monster Energy Brazil in 2018. The series will also have videos starring names such as Leandro Overall, Fred Kyrillos and Atila Abreu, among other important names in Brazilian action, motor and e-sports.
