NEWS: LETICIA BUFONI FOR NIKE WOMEN
“The first time I touched the board, I was like… Wow, I want to skate, I want to skate every day.’”
We all know love at first sight might be possible, but there is also the oportunity to fall in love at first touch, like Leticia Bufoni did, actually with her skateboard. So she started to skate everyday, whenever she could make the time to. Before she grew up, her dad wasn’t very amused by his sk8ter girl daughter, at least because most of the time she hung out with boys. She got outside after he went to work and managed to arrive at home before he got back. With persistence and dedication she finally convinced her father, showing him that she’s got talent in the first event she entered.
The very same thing brought her to Southern California in 2007, the mecca of skateboarding, and her career has taken off since then. Now she is one of the leading faces of woman on skateboards by only being 21 years old.
I’m living my dream, i’m skating every day. I’m traveling around the world and skating with friends I know from Brasil and the U.S. It’s just a dream.
