THERE ARE ALWAYS GOING TO BE GUYS WHO TAKE SKATING A LITTLE FARTHER, BUT VERY FEW CAN MAKE IT LEAP TO PLACES BEYOND OUR IMAGINATION. PEDRO IS THAT GUY FOR THIS GENERATION.
When left to their own devices, certain people have the potential to change the world. Look at what Einstein accomplished tucked away behind a desk in a patent office. In our own world, street skating wouldn’t be what it is today without Rodney Mullen locking himself away in his barn for years and years. In the same way, one can’t help but wonder what manner of skate madness 19-year-old Pedro Barros will come up with holed away in his private skate compound on the remote island of Florianopolis, Brazil. With a massive cement bowl, a proper vert ramp and mini on his property, Pedro has already mastered transition skating at a very young age. The lines he puts together are like no other and padless, back-to-back 540s in cement bowls were incomprehensible until Pedro dropped in on the scene. There are always going to be guys who take skating a little farther, but very few can make it leap to places beyond our imagination. Pedro is that guy for this generation.
WHAT’S BEEN THE BEST TRIP YOU’VE EVER BEEN ON?
I have a few best trips, but my last one to Nicaragua was nice! I’ve had some really good times with my friends and my dad. There was good surfing and also a nice mini ramp on the beach. That was a good escape from real life!
FAVORITE VANS RIDER?
Omar. Omar is my idol!
WHAT TRICK CAN’T YOU DO THAT YOU WISH YOU COULD?
WHAT ARE SOME INTERESTS/HOBBIES OUTSIDE OF SKATING?
I surf and I’m trying to learn some guitar.
LAST GOOD BOOK YOU READ?
I don’t read books.
