Biography

There is a new, pre-teen world order in street skating, and heading the charge is brilliant Brazilian Rayssa Leal.

Born in 2008, Leal rose to prominence in a way only the youngest generation really know how – through the medium of viral video. A short video clip of Leal perfectly executing a heelflip down a set of stairs while donning a bright blue tutu as part of a fairy princess costume perfect exploded across social media platforms, propelling the then seven-year-old to internet notoriety.

Behind the tricks and clicks there is also a seriously talented competitor.

At 11 the goofy-footed skateboarder became the youngest street skater ever to win a Women’s Final on the Street League Skateboarding World Tour in Los Angeles. She bested current world number one Pamela Rosa to clinch the title. The Brazilian – who has been skating for just six years - has featured twice at the X-Games in 2019. At both competitions Leal finished in fourth place.
