Sean Silveira – Athlete Interview

Come get to know the 6x Flowboard World Champ and rookie on the Pro Wakesurf Tour!

How did you get started in action sports?

I grew up skateboarding since I was 9. I did that all the way up until 18 and that’s when I laid my eyes on the Flowrider! I have been doing that for 10 years now. I am 6x world champion. That lead me into wakesurfing, the transition was almost identical! I love it all when it comes to action sports!

Who are your current sponsors?

Agenda surf, Wakesurf Orlando, Tommy’s Boats and Phase Five boards. My favorite board right now behind the boat is the Matrix by P5. My favorite board on the flowrider is my 45” quad channel pro model.

Who is your biggest inspiration?

My biggest inspiration is my big brother. He is a pilot , but that didn’t happen overnight. He has worked his hole life to get a job with an airline, hard work pays off, I’m stoked for him!

Any advice to up and coming athletes?

Set some goals for yourself and do whatever it takes to crush them. This will keep you moving forward in the future and keep you pumped on wakesurfing.

Tacos or burritos?
