This is a post from Bruna’s old website, its best to hear about her in her own words.

In one of my first competitions I attempted to do a trick to close to the beach with on shore winds & crashed head first on the sand. I had to be taken to the hospital by ambulance & had a neck brace for a week. That’s were I learned not to do tricks on shore wind with less then 3m from the beach
Never travel without
My laptop computer, I have my whole life on it . Once it was stolen – I had to manage without it for 10 days & I just couldn’t get my things organized!
Favorite spot in the world
North Brazil Cauipe & Paracuru. Bummer that these spots are getting way o crowded.
On my IPOD
I’m a music lover and every part of my day has a different theme, that’s why I have a little bit of everything on my Ipod. But artist for any time are John Meyer, Matt Costa and G Love.
I don’t have one person – I get inspired everyday by the people around me. Everyone has their unique thing that can inspire others.
I change that a lot but right now I’m into yogurt with bananas, strawberries, musli and honey.
Biggest challenge about going pro
Managing the pressure to perform and keeping your sponsors happy. You have to be careful not to have the fun in riding taken away by that.
1 piece of advise to other kiters
Always have fun on the water, no matter what the conditions are. Sometimes I’m having a hard day free-styling and I don’t enjoy it until I realize that the conditions are actually perfect for surfing or big air. I recommend to try to see all the opportunities kite offers you, being such a versatile sport
Goal for this year
Push girls riding to another level ,get the title as word champion and the most important…..enjoy it!
