Count Filipe Toledo among the young generation of supremely talented surfers that effectively busted down whatever remaining doors stood in the path of the "Brazilian Storm." Much like his peers, he can't be defined simply. The stereotype of a high-flying, hyper-passionate surfer is no longer the status quo. Sure, the kid has airs and Brazilian pride, but he has also demonstrated a fluent rail game, power and flow – you know, all those other elements the judges like to see. Hence, his US Open and Quik Pro Gold Coast wins. Filipe has made his intentions known: now that his compatriot, Gabriel Medina, has shown his fellow countrymen the way, he wants to be the next to add a world championship to his legacy.
