Felipe Gustavo is a street skateboarding technician who won Tampa Am as a complete unknown and he's a member of Brazil’s first-ever national team.
Hailing from Brazil’s capital city of Brasília, Felipe Gustavo became a national celebrity in his home country back in 2007. The inspirational story of his father selling the family car to buy them tickets to travel to Tampa Am in Florida, a contest Felipe won at 16 as a complete unknown, became national folklore.
“I got lucky and won,” Felipe says now. “I was so stoked. I knew that was my day to try to prove myself.” After that, Felipe joined the elite team at Plan B Skateboards, released his 2010 VAMdalism video part and has solidified his stature as one of skateboarding’s most gifted and creative skaters.
Turning pro in November 2013, Felipe (a diehard hip-hop fan) and Plan B adopted Notorious B.I.G.’s lyric It Was All A Dream as his personal tagline. Gustavo appeared in Plan B’s fifth full-length video, True, the following year.
Having battled injuries that slowed his inaugural season with Street League in 2015, Felipe maintained a glass-half-full outlook, “It’s good for me to experience that kind of pressure [Street League], being on TV and having to be on point,” he says. Felipe’s grace under pressure was tested again – back to peak performance in 2019, he was among eight men and eight women selected for Brazil’s first ever-national skateboarding team.
Plan B Skateboards
In 1991 Mike Ternasky assembled one of the most dominant teams in the history of the sport and produced what many consider to be the best skate video of all time, Questionable. In 1994, after Mike’s tragic death in car accident the future of the team appeared to be over. Then in 2005, founding team members Danny Way and Colin McKay relaunched the brand with their own version of the super team and a dream to continue the legacy of Plan B.
