Touring, All-Around | Somewhere in the Ocean
We are a couple and a dog from Brazil who decided to take a chance, live our dreams, and see where it would take us.
We were living fine, but struggling to stay afloat the waterline, so we decide to run away from the rat race and experiment with a new lifestyle – live on a boat, produce our own water and energy, fish for our own meals, and decide today what we are going to do tomorrow (if anything at all).
WHERE DO YOU CURRENTLY LIVE:
In the ocean! We live at “Ipanema,” a sail catamaran, and we are cruising with it around the world.
HOW MANY YEARS HAVE YOU BEEN PADDLING:
We have been paddling for 6 years, since 2009.
WHATS YOUR FAVORITE PADDLING STYLE:
We like to freestyle and explore the place we get to with our SUPs. Our dog is also a great fan of the boards.
FAVORITE PLACES TO TRAVEL:
Our favourite destination is Fernando de Noronha, an island a few hundred miles off the Brazilian coast.
DO YOU HAVE ANY SECRET TALENTS:
I can almost touch my nose with the tip of my tongue
WHEN YOU’RE NOT PADDLING YOU ARE:
Renato and Sarah: Sailing or fixing the boat, diving, kiting or surfing
Feijão: Eating, sleeping or going about doing his business
WHATS YOUR FAVORITE ISLE BOARD:
Sarah: I like the woman’s inflatable one. I can almost do yoga on it, if there are calm waters.
Renato: My favorite one is the Glider, and I can explore and surf with it.
Feijão: He loves the Megalodon, which is the size of his ego.
Renato: Feijão and I will eat anything. We love burritos – the kind that has everything in it!
Sarah: I’m slowly turning vegetarian, so I am not eating burritos anymore.
DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT DAY IN UNDER 10 WORDS:
Any day at sea
Quit our jobs and start sailing the world with no previous experience
Cool boards with great design, all around performance, inflatable option which is great for traveling and with a Californian style
