Wanderley Rodrigues was born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil. Brazil can be very unforgiving to skaters of all kinds but Wanderley has managed to make quite a name for himself within his own country and abroad. His love and dedication often leaves him spending more time on his skates then he does on his feet. He is not only a beast in both the park and the streets, but he also an ambassador for blading and works extremely hard to spread the love of rollerblading throughout Brazil.
Rodrigues is also the owner and designer of Hurricane Blading and sponsors a number of skaters throughout Brazil. He has produced several hand made pro products for the Brazil blade market from high end apparel to shin pads and other protective gear. We are honored to present to you Wanderley’s One Minute, One Spot profile which was filmed and edited by the multi-talented Sam DeAngelis.
