|Philip Wollens Rajzman|
27 June 1982 |
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
As a disciple of one of the pioneers and biggest names in Brazilian surfing, Rico de Souza, Phil Rajzman began catching waves at six years old and was recognized as one of the greatest promises in Brazilian surfing from an early age. He has been consistently present on podiums since 1994, when he started competing.
At the age of 15 Phil became a known figure, impressing the world with great performances on giant waves in Hawaii. He was invited to join the first Brazilian Tow-In Team, (where the surfer is pulled by a jet-ski, searching for the biggest and best waves possible).
In 2002 Phil participated in the movie Surf Adventures, a highlight of which was his amazing sequence of maneuvers at Fernando de Noronha. A continuation of the movie, Surf Adventures 2, is in the final editing phase, and Phil again plays a main role in the movie as being the only surfer to use both a short and longboard.
