It was Heitor Alves' dream to join the ASP World Tour, and now that he's realized that dream, he's got no plans of ever leaving. The Brazilian began surfing at the age of eight when he honed his big air maneuvers, and today, he's taken that same determination and focus straight to the Tour. His WQS win at the '07 Sri Lankan Airlines Pro in the Maldives was a shining moment for Alves and an eye opener for his opponents, as his final score was over four points ahead of the runner up.
His plans for competing on the Tour include surfing on perfect waves, becoming familiar with the circuit, and giving each competition his all. With a love for surfing and travel, as well as an understanding of the progression of the sport, Alves is becoming a true Champion contender to watch.
