When you think of Brazil you think of Samba, Capoeira, and brilliant football players. Now those agile Brazilians really know how to move their feet. Looks like the country also has another fleet-footed superstar who is amazing on her skateboard.
Rayssa Leal is a pretty talented skateboarder from Brasil, who also happens to be just 9 years old. She is known in her country as ‘Fadinha Do Skate’ which means “The Skate Fairy” because she sometimes rocks a fairy-tale princess’ costume while skating. You can see her doing several impressively technical skateboard tricks while in her fairy princess’ costume. That’s pretty amazing if you ask me. She is a super talented girl who even got praise from the famous professional skateboarder, Tony Hawk. You can follow her Instagram page @rayssalealsk8, where she has 112k followers by date.
