After contracting polio at a young age his legs stopped developing and Oggy originally learned to skateboard as a way to get around, much like most people use a wheel chair. Many years of skateboarding under his belt, Og started around 1988, Souza began to incorporate the tricks of his contemporaries in his skateboarding, having to adapt them all to be done using the arms in a sitting position on the board.
Og de Souza is a contemporary of skateboarder Bob Burnquist. Burnquist features Og in the documentary "The Reality of Bob Burnquist." As Burnquist puts it, Souza became a skateboarder "to get from point A to point B."
