Guilherme Tamega: it's always difficult to pick the right colors

Uri Valadao has signed a contract with Guilherme Tamega's brand new GT Boards.

The 2008 IBA World Tour champion will be riding GT Boards by Guilherme Tâmega. Valadao was born on the 30th Abril, 1985, in Salvador, Brazil.

He first rode a board when he was eight years old. Uri Valadao has conquered five Brazilian bodyboarding titles, and clinched his maiden world trophy in 2008, after finishing runner-up in 2007.

"I've always admired Uri Valadao for his work. He is a great professional and has an inner talent. Now, GT Boards has got nine world titles," says Guilherme Tâmega

GT Boards has been founded in 2013. In the last months, the multiple-time world champion spent time developing his signature brand and new gear will be available in surf shops, in Spring 2014.

Tamega promises all-round bodyboards for comfortable rides, with narrow tails, high-end stringers and flexible cores. Ready for it?
