Guilherme Tâmega has announced his retirement from the professional bodyboarding world tour.

He's one of the legends of the sport. For more than two decades, Tâmega competed at the world's most challenging events. He won six world titles and inspired riders, not only from Brazil, but from all corners of the globe. Now, he is ready to hang his fins.

"I do not plan to compete in the tour. Today, I've got my own bodyboard brand, and I am fully dedicated to it. I draw the lines, but I don't shape them. If I'm not in it to win, it doesn't matter. My biggest dream now is to watch my kids, and my brand do good," Tâmega told Globo Esporte.
