Cityhopper World: Skating Favela La Rocinha

While filming Sven Boekhorst‘s latest Cityhopper World project in Brazil, the crew had a chance to blade the famous miniramp in La Rocinha‘s favela, and here is Remy Cadier‘s account of their amazing experience in Rio De Janeiro! Bombing down the city’s hills fast, and shredding this incredible piece of transition, it is safe to say everyone had a blast and shared an incredible time: take a look, and get ready to meet the world!

After we had wrapped up shooting the Cityhopper Rio De Janeiro part of Cityhopper world we wanted to donate the Cityhopper ramp to a good cause, and maybe have a look at the very famous ‘Curva Do S’ miniramp in the La Rocinha favela. In La Rocinha we had the opportunity to do a dirty little downhill and skate the miniramp before we headed over to the ‘Skate-Bike-Roller’ skatepark, to whom we would donate our Cityhopper ramp. Guiding us were Rubem from the SBR skatepark, Raphael Medeiros and Maxwell Alexandre, to make sure we got the shots we wanted, and also that we wouldn’t get robbed ofcourse. Sven and Maxwell skated the miniramp, and I did a little downhill with Raphael. This was by far one of the coolest experiences we had during our time in Brazil.– Remy Cadier
