Sharpeye team rider and WCT standout Filipe Toledo challenges scared-in-big-waves rep in film CANDID: "I don't wanna be this guy."
In this nine-minute short, perennial world title contender Filipe Toledo talks, candidly, about the reputation that has bedevilled his career since his zero point heat at Teahupoo in 2015.
"The reputation's not good. People talking about it? I don't like it," says Filipe.
The film contrasts that zero-point heat in Tahiti with his near-win over Kelly Slater, at eight-to-ten-foot Pipeline, in 2018.
Filipes's weapon of choice is the #77 Model.
The #77 model. Filipe toledo’s board of choice during his incredible road to victory in the 2017 J Bay Open. The #77 has more entry & exit rocker then his previous Holy Toledo model, coupled with a harder edge above the fins and more subtle concave through the tail. Quoted the "fastest board ive ever ridden” by Filipe. This board surfs best in good punchy waves and is recommended for intermediate to experienced surfers only. Order the model the same length as your height.
