Bruna Schmitz turns heads both in and out of the water. Her big backhand hits and stylish forehand snaps equally match her natural, Brazilian poise as a model. She put in two years on the elite World Tour in 2009 and 2010, and Sports Illustrated showcased her beauty in the 2011 Swimsuit Issue.
Bruna grew up surfing a long, right hand wave in the small town of Matinhos, Brazil. By the age of 14, Bruna was already the youngest athlete to win a professional event in Brazil. She kicked off her pro career at the age of 15, traveling and competing internationally. In just two years, Bruna made the ASP World Tour.
Bruna is perfect spokesperson to represent her country. She is set on using her role model status to create fun, recreational opportunities for Brazil's less-fortunate city kids. Bruna remains a kid at heart and her fun-loving attitude is infectious.
