At the age of 37, Pedro collects achievements. From São José dos Campos, São Paulo, he started rowing professionally when he was 15 as an instructor in the rapids of the Paraíbuna river in the city of São Luiz do Paraitinga.

In 2009, he kayaked down the 40 m Salto Belo waterfall located in Campo Novo do Parecis, Mato Grosso, which earned him a world record for extreme kayaking.

He’s already rowed on 7 continents in 50 countries and 80 rivers in a wide range of landscapes at several levels of challenge. Pedro is responsible for taking the country to the next level in regard to overcoming, willpower and courage.
