After floating Joao a few JJF Pro traction pads and leashes to try out over the 2023-24 winter season, we were excited to hear positive and helpful feedback from him instantly.

This feedback sparked a close relationship with Joao, working on gear to suit his life on tour, constant travels around the world, and of course his high level of surfing he pushes day in & out.

Joao sheds a fresh light to our brand being another CT surfer dedicated to creating & improving the highest performance surf gear possible, paired with brands like Volcom & Channel Islands Surfboards we are stoked to continue progressing with Joao and can't wait to share it with the rest of the surf world.
