The property of Samba, Capoeira and amazing football players, these nifty Brazilians actually understand how to transfer their toes. This translates into skateboarding also, for this young woman specifically showing an extraordinary flair for the game.
The upcoming fleet-footed celebrity in the making is 9-year-old Rayssa Leal, famous in her home state as ‘Fadinha Do Skate’ which appears roughly as ‘The Skate Fairy.’ That is since she isn’t just a super gifted young skater, winning several junior street-skating names and even obtaining a shoutout from Tony Hawk, but just like any other young woman she really loves getting dressed up along with the fairy outfit is just one of her favorites.
The media-savvy kid has built up a cult following on her Instagram and Facebook webpages and is well on her way to getting the most recent skate goddess at a nation that’s produced some wonderful professional golfers women, Eliana Sosco and Leticia Bufoni one of them.
