sessions Sebastian Ribeiro is something of a wave riding veteran... He was one of the first Brazilians to join the wave tour in 2012 and prove that you could make a living out of kitesurfing. Where he began, many Brazilians have now followed, with the windy Brazilian afternoons also providing good options for surfers looking to maximize their water time and work on their air game. Sebastian’s kitesurfing journey began in Rio, so when he found himself back there and got a call to say that the city’s main beach Ipanema was ON, he was all over it… PHOTOS: TOBY BROMWICH
