Barbara Mueller is a pro surfer that hails from the state of Santa Catarina in Brazil. She rode her first Carver a few years ago and it became her favorite skateboard, as it felt just like surfing. But then the unfortunate happened, and during a surf session she broke her ankle. It was pretty bad with pins supporting the shattered bones, and it required a lengthy and painful rehab. As soon as she had healed enough, and even before going back into the water, she began riding her Carver again. working out in the controlled environment of a smooth road, she used her surfskating to build the same stamina and flexibility she would need to get back into the waves.
Barbara is now back surfing across Europe and Brazil. This is a video celebrating her return to surfing and the skateboard she credits with speeding up her recovery. Thanks for the stoke!
