Magno Oliveira and blind friend: they rock

Magno Oliveira has blind friend who loves riding waves. The pro bodyboarder and his mate decided to hit the waves together in a great Brazilian reef break. No problem, until Oliveira realized he had forgotten something.

"When a nice set came, I tried to position myself to ride one of them, but I forgot to tell him. So he got the bomb on his head and he broke his board. Whoops!", tells Magno Oliveira.

"He was all good though and came up laughing. I call him a surfer with bodyboarding blood because he always wants to surf the most hollow waves".

As you can see below, Oliveira's friend is well prepared for hard and fast take-offs.
