Four-time world champion Royler Gracie is still sticking his neck out in competition. GRACIEMAG.com has done a number of articles commenting on the unlikely but strong relationship between Jiu-Jitsu and surfing practitioners. The same goes for the “Fight Surf” television series, to air on Brazil’s Combate channel and tell some of the story.
The last episode of the program takes place at one of Rio de Janeiro’s surf temples, Prainha beach. That’s where Black belt Surf Challenge took place, and Royler was one of the highlights.
“I received the Helio Gracie trophy, for having surfed the best wave of the competition,” the black belts tells GRACIEMAG.com.
“I took third in the competition. Léo Leite (not the one from Alliance) took first, followed by Marcos Brasa. Rogério from Infight took fourth,” he adds.
The event also featured the participation of other surfer black belts, like Roberto Gordo, Rafael Gordinho, Paulo Zulu, Renan Pitangui, and Malibu, among others.
