GET TO KNOW IGOR
HOMETOWN: João Pessoa, Paraíba, Brasil
DAY JOB: Software Developer.
WHEN YOU'RE NOT PADDLING YOU'RE: Probably working on my computer! But outside of work, I’m either at the beach with my wife and dog, working out in my home gym or doing another water sport like windsurfing or surfing.
MORNING OR EVENING PADDLE: Evening
FAVORITE RUN: Kailua Bay. A couple miles outside the Mokulua islands surfing back towards Castles
FAVORITE RACE: Molokai Solo. It’s the race that motivates me to train all season. Crossing the Kaiwi channel
is a challenge in itself, and the race brings the best paddlers in the world together for it.
FAVORITE PRE-RACE MEAL: Toast, eggs and a piece of fruit. I keep it simple and light.
FAVORITE HYPE SONG: Various hip-hop songs, from Dr. Dre to Chris Webby.
DREAM PADDLING RUN/ADVENTURE: Maui to Lanai crossing.
YOUR ADVICE FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF PADDLERS: Be curious, not judgmental. Life is a lot more interesting when we approach it with a curious mindset.
