38 years old, Born in South Brazil and started surfing 3 when he was 13 years old. Bento’s first surf trip he went to Puerto Escondido about 20 years ago. Puerto’s (Mexican Pipeline) where Bento cut his teeth and first started to surf some heavier waves.
That experience motivated Bento to search the globe for heavy water waves. Bento spent most of the time surfing Chile and discovering his love for big wave surfing.
In search of heavy slabs and beach breaks, Bento mainly surfs in mainland Mexico, California and Baja California North. Bento now lives full time with my wife in Ensenada. Bento’s favorite spots are El Gringo, Mainland Mexico, Todos Santos, El Buey and some outer reefs in Chile. When not surfing Bento enjoys fishing and Jiu-Jitsu.
